They say “Busy people get things done.” For me, busy people get zits and mood swings. That’s my experience this whirlwind of a week.
Today I have meetings and photo-shoots at the The Capitol Skyline Hotel, where I work with the Rubell family on rockstar pool parties and the infusion of art and style into SouthWest DC. Not a bad gig. I’m just a little tired and off-balance because my closet is trashed and dishes are dirty. I know, cry me a River Phoenix.
Hopefully, I can cook, bake and chill all weekend long. On Monday I’m jetting back to New York for the James Beard Awards. They’ve asked me to guest-blog the gala, alongside much more established food bloggers like: Carol Blymire (alineaathome.com), Marcia Gagliardi (tablehopper.com), Jennifer Leuzzi (snack.blogs.com), Adam Sachs (adamsachs.org/blog), Meatball, Snacktime, Julia Childless (shutupfoodies.com).
Assuming I’m the resident “clueless chick,” which means I’ll at least look hot. Everybody will be there- from the Voltaggio Brothers to Thomas Keller. Very cool experience. Just hope I don’t embarrass myself too much. (A little mortification is standard.)
Spike gets home tonight and I’d like to have some food ready for my hard-workin’ hubby. Even though he’s not my husband, and not exactly slumming it in his penthouse hotel suite. Sometimes I’m just so Mad Men.
Any recommendations for one-pot wonders?
