      Good morning Darlin', enjoying a quiet day in the Klatch.

      In news, RichHead has an imaginary playmate, JDizz identifies with the Swedish Chef, JBJ is going all travel agent on us, and The Witty One is rooming with two hippie chicks.

      How about with you?

        Jdizz aka Swedish chef?? I missed that... I was thinking more of a Jamie Oliver or Guy Fieri for Jd. For Truth, I'm thinking Tyler Florence? SirB, hmmm, Geoffrey Zakarian or Scott Conant? RH – Easy one, the nekkid chef. Not sure about the ladies...

          Bigger question, who is our Nadia G???
          I am thinking the Queen...

          I haven't seen Nadia lately...or the queen for that matter! I was thinking maybe Melissa d'Arabien for queenie, and for AleeD, Giada? (for no other reason, than the s3xiness)....mayber Ellie Krieger for MicheleG??

        Thanks, Sweet Thang! Color me diving back into the Klatschkie Swim. (did I spel that rite?)

        We had a nice visit out at Laughlin. My BF got an invite to a Super Bowl Party at Harrah's. He bet on the 49er's so nothing there......We certainly dined well. The Buffet there is way cool, had champaigne with one of our breakfasts.

        It's a 5 hour plus drive from where we live and it's good to be home!

    I procrastinated and didn't book this back in Dec/Jan and it hasn't been available since...until this morning!! Scored the 2 bedroom/2 bath unit for my birthday week in April for FREE! I hope mom is up to the trip by then...Alhambra, Seville, and Morocco on my must do list for the week. :D Now to try to get a deal on airfare...not so easy.

    Good morning class! I was thinking this morning for no reason at all, what celebrity chef does your style of cooking most resemble??

    Me – Ina Garten – I love her recipes and the process of chopping, prepping, long preperation dishes. And her stuff is so good!

      Jewel is from a town an hour south of my hometown in Alaska. She also lived in a van for a while, ie: The Photo.

          When the cast members are trying not to laugh is the funniest.

    Even though he is a devoted Grateful Dead fan, The Witty One begins to re-think his decision to follow the band across the country with Magnolia and Sunflower, the two girls he met at the RFK Stadium show last month.

      I thought Flower Power when I saw it. Then I thought, how can I travel around in a van with two chicks?

    The woman holding the cup looks completely unimpressed with whatever the other girl has said to her.

    Love the piece on Vietnamese home cooking. I wonder if It will ever truly take off amongst non Vietnamese people?
