Taking a Break...Sorta.

Since next week will be an onslaught of baking, I am going to enjoy my entire weekend by stepping out of the kitchen. My thighs are almost rubbing together again for crying out loud. UGHHH...

Anyhoo....The media preview party for the State Fair was last night, and if you haven't heard by now, the new sandwich this year is the deep-fried Elvis (bananas and PB, deep fried with honey...niiiice) apropos for the deathaversary of the King yesterday. Charlie Boghosian had his deep-fried booth open last night for all of us to try anything we wanted for free.

SM tried the DF oreos for the first time. One would think he found God ;) I stuck to sparkling wine, watermelon, cauliflower, and cucumbers. We also had free reign of the carousel and a few other rides. Sweet. :)

Sunday I am going to see Jim Gaffigan at Mountain Winery. If you have never heard this guy, check him out. HEE-larious.

One word on Gaffigan...HOT POCKETS! This guy is so good. As a comic, I appreciate all his joke writing.
And, I have had a grilled Elvis in NYC. It's delicious. The deep fried might be too much.

Let me know if you want any help baking this week! I only have a few weeks of real free time left before school starts, so i need to cram in as much socializing as i can! ;)
