It’s fun to meet the other food bloggers!! I ate lunch across from Anna at Cookie Madness who is a KERF reader! Food bloggers got priority to attend a special food demo by Rocco DiSpirito sponsored by Bertolli Pasta Sauce . I came away with a Rocco cookbook and two sample pouches of Bertolli!
I had just sat down to eat my delicious boxed lunch ….when……….
First – the lunch! Our choices were a grilled chicken breast sandwich , a veggie wrap (with onions) and a steak salad . Normally I’d never choose a steak salad because I’m just not a big steak eater, but it was the most appealing option so I did. It was actually delicious!! Best boxed lunch I’ve had in ages! The salad had steak pieces , cilantro, jicama, cucumbers, carrots , and an Asian dressing. So good!
There was also a roll (it wasn’t the best but I ate it anyways) and fruit salad , which I ate all of, plus some of mom’s. I love fruit! I saved the Ghirardelli chocolate for later and only had 2 small bites of the dessert – it was cherry-chocolate which is a combo I just have never liked.
We also tasted some of the Bertolli pouched sauces – which were REALLY good! I loved the mushroom one. I had a piece of french bread for dipping.
So as I was saying….I had just sat down to eat when Rocco came up and put his hand on the back of my chair and started chatting away!! The blogger next to me snapped a photo (although a little blurry). Hot stuff!
For dessert I had the rest of my chocolate from this morning –
Again I’m blogging during a session (many of us are!) and should be paying attention again…
