Week update

On top of all the Royal Wedding excitement from last week, Nick and I also had some other fun things going on.  Still trying to catch up on sleep from it all!

Wednesday night we went to Seattle Weekly's 2011 Voracious Tasting & Food Awards. I had never been before, but it was quite the event.  We paid a flat ticket fee and got tastings, mixed drinks and wine (all unlimited) from over 50 Seattle restaurants.  So you just walk around and literally eat and drink as much as you like!  We also walked away with two cookbooks.  Needless to say we'll be back next year!

Then Friday night (even though I was exhausted from the Royal Wedding) we went to a concert by The Head And The Heart, a local Seattle band. 



Saturday night we had had some friends over for dinner and a game night and I made Ina Garten's lemon chicken, mustard roasted potatoes and snap peas with pancetta.

And of course like most Americans sat and watched the TV Sunday night with regarding the news about the death of Osama Bin Laden and of course keeping the people in the South in my prayers.

Wow! You were busy!! I love/hate weeks like that! Eric and I were JUST talking about how we need to start saying "no" to some things b/c we're barely seeing each other with all our obligations! LOL! I have no idea how you did a concert Friday night! I passed out SO early since I got up to watch the wedding, like you! And um... that Seattle tasting thing is freaking awesome! How cool!

The Voracious Tasting & Food awards sound pretty incredible. Chicago does the taste of Chicago every year which I've been down to once, but it doesn't seem to compare with what you went to. Yuuuum!
