FoodBuzz Blogger Festival

I seriously have the best BOSS in the whole world, and I don't say that to "suck" up I promise she is just great. I love all my co-workers they are amazing gals!! Today we went out to a local Mexican Restaurant and had some authentic Mexican food, I haven't had "real" Mexican food in a very long time.

I tried to keep my hands off of these chips but they were tooooo wonderful!


I ordered a bean, rice, lettuce and avocado burrito. IT WAS HUGE!

I ate the whole thing and suffered for it all day. I found out that their was LARD in the beans and almost died!!! I thought that most Mexican places took the lard out these days. Oh well I'll live!

When I got back from lunch I drank the second half of my POM Tea, hoping it would pump some HEALTH in me...I think the taste is growing on me:).


Thanks for all the tips about what movie to see tonight, I think we are going to go with Julia and Julia because the girls have already seen The Time Travelers Wife.
Today I was reading the details of the FoodBuzz Blogger Festival and I SOOOO pre-registered, it's FREE for FoodBuzz Publishers:) I am so stoked, anyone else going????

I wish I could go but I don't have the money to travel cross country. Maybe next year!

Mmm, I wish we had an authentic Mexican place here. (In central IL, dream on!) I'll just have to come visit you in So.Cal. We can go for some speedy miles to negate the effects of the lard, hoho.

Nothing wrong with some greasy Mexican food every now and then!

I TOTALLY pre-registered for the Festival. It looks awesome!!!!!!!!

The Outstanding in the Field dinner is enough for me to desperately want to be there! lol Those dinners are impossible to get into (I've been trying) but they're supposed to be incredible.

Are you asking for sponsorship? I've approached a company and they seem interested but I don't know what I could offer in return. Suggestions?

I wanna go, but will have to check on whether I have a break from school then...
And hey, lard ain't that bad if it is eaten in moderation! Plus, it makes food TASTY! :-)

I REALLY want to go, but I just can't afford to GET to SanFran for it. I looked yesterday after getting the email, and plane tickets are $400 already!

it sounds SO fun!
