  1. once again, thanks Steven, the food was rockin'. I look forward to heading back up and there.



  2. i second that! any chance you can share the recipe for that amazing dessert!??? (everything else was great too, but the dessert definitely knocked it out of the park)

  3. I see you decided to go with the thinner/taller jars.

    Good looking food buddy.

  4. Thanks for putting together such a fantastic meal and for the later tasting munchies! I'm with biskuit -- would you share the dessert recipe? It was perfect in every way. :)


  5. Loved the food. And I'm not just saying that because I'm a slighty husky human who loves food in general. Very impressive.

    Dreaming of prosciutto...

    Cheers! Joe @suburbanwino

  6. wish we could have been there. we'd have made lots of yummy noises and meant every word of it.
