Friday Foodstuffs – 11.7.08: Pardon Us While We Nest

If you’ve been following along with our blog, you know that Lisa is pregnant. And if you haven’t been following our blog and this is the first post you’ve read…Lisa is pregnant. She’s at Week 36, so the new baby is going to be here very soon. You may have noticed that Lisa’s posts have been on the infrequent side, and that’s because she is in full nesting mode. She’s also usually dead dog tired by the end of the day as well – we do have a soon-to-be 6 year-old running around.

So, needless to say, our posts in the next couple of weeks might slow to a trickle while we find a new level of normalcy. We think you guys out there can be a bit understanding and patient with us during this time, right? Thanks…I knew I could count on you.

It’s actually a quiet weekend as far as the Festivals of Food are concerned, but that doesn’t mean that things aren’t going on in the South Jersey area:

If you’re looking for something to do tonight, the Evesham Education Foundation is holding its annual wine tasting event at The Mansion on Main Street. Over 1000 wines will be available for tasting, along with different foods to compliment the wines. The public tasting begins at 6:30PM and tickets are $80; if you want to start the festivities early, there is a VIP tasting at 5PM for $145.

Michael Ronis, founding chef of the world famous Carmine’s in New York and at The Quarter in The Tropicana in Atlantic City, will be signing copies of “Carmine’s Family-Style Cookbook” tomorrow and on Tuesday. The signings will take place at the Atlantic City location.

The Borgata in Atlantic City is having a very schwanky event tomorrow night. “Savor Borgata” will allow those in attendance to not only eat foods prepared by Borgata’s arsenal of celeb chefs (Bobby Flay, Michael Mina, Michael Schulson, Geoffery Zakarain), but to schmooze with these guys as well. The event starts at 6:30, and the ticket price is $235. (And yes, that’s a lot of money for a good chunk of us at a time when cutting back on discretionary spending is the order of the day.)

The Lee family cranberry farm is featured in an article in the Burlington County Times this week. The Lee family has been growing cranberries at their Burlington County location since, oh, 1869.

And lastly, I received some excellent news this week. I had posted some time ago that the Calypso Cafe in Neptune had closed. Well, they’re back in business! Looking forward to chowing down on their jerk pork and beef patties once again.
