September 2007 Roundup

I’m finally getting around to posting September’s roundup. But before I post the recipes, I just have a few administrative tasks to get out of the way….

First, if you want to go to the meetup at Stauf’sĀ this upcoming Sunday, and either don’t know about it yet or haven’t signed up, go here and RSVP. And even if you can’t make it this Sunday, sign up for the group anyway, so that you can be notified of future events. For those of you who are coming or who might come, I can’t wait to meet you if I haven’t already. :)

Second, I’m going to be adding/revamping a few things over the next week or two. I have a bunch of updates to make to the Food Related Events section, along with updating the Food Blog Directory and adding/removing some restaurantsĀ in the menu section (is it just me or are as many restaurants closing as are opening these days?). Also, over the next month, I’m going to be adding a list of places to get local foods in Ohio. Keep an eye out for it.

Well, on to the roundup…

I haven’t done much fine dining in my lifetime, but this meal The Hungry Hedonist had at Alinea looks absolutely amazing. Chicago is relatively close to Ohio, one of these days I’d love to go for a long weekend in Illinois with my husband and enjoy this for myself.

Leave it to Lisa the Waitress to sniff out what looks to be one of the best weekend brunch options in town. Here I thought L’Antibes closed, and now I find out that not only are they open, but are serving brunch? Oh my, that lobster and potato gratin with sunny side up egg has me drooling…

Can I take a second to say how (tongue-in-cheek) jealous I am of the get together some of the Daring Bakers had up in Cleveland a while ago? I know I’m no longer a Daring Baker (at least until the health issues clear up), but no love for the Columbus contingent, ladies? ;) Well, at least I have a list of places I absolutely *have* to check out the next time I head to Cleveland, which recently has been about once a month or so…

Also, we’re still trying to firm up our plans for Thanskgiving, since it’s just my husband and I. Are there any other couples or singles or people without firm plans or a large family that want to get together for either a meal in a restaurant or a Thanksgiving potluck? If so, comment on this post and I’ll email you. :) Alternatively, even if you aren’t interested, if you had to eat out for Thanksgiving, where would you go?

That’s it for now…keep an eye out for October’s roundup in the next week or so….

  1. Becke, I was thinking about you when I was flying to Cleveland and how cool it would be for the next time we were all hanging out in Ohio to kidnap you for a bit!

    AND, the next time I have a three hour layover in Columbus between jobs, I’m getting together with you!!

    Hope you are feeling better soon so you can come back and join our escapades!
