Au Revoir 2009

Posted: January 20, 2010 in Uncategorized

I would say that 2009 was a good year.  Lets see…sold the house, moved to a fantastic neighborhood in Historic Franklin, met amazing friends, traveled with a new gig, celebrated our anniversary, rocked a KING costume and I am now working on my first cookbook to be released in 2011. Here is a quick preview…to be cont.

Summer Tour ’09- Power Shopping

This is just a glimpse of my shopping trips on the road.  This is pretty much how I start  and end every day.  Although it doesn’t appear this way, I have a very systematic way of shopping…from my list, to the  products I search for first, and my system of checking out.  This sumer I was in Nashville, New Jersey, Dallas, and California.  It was a great opportunity and couldn’t have spent my time with a better group of people.

Noble Springs Dairy Tour

Corrie and I had the opportunity to tour Noble Springs Dairy and were so impressed by the hospitality that we received from Dustin and Justyne,  the owners of the dairy.  They took the time to show us the entire farm and the process they use for producing wonderful cheeses. The  tour ended in a chat on the front porch, tasting the cheese and sampling wine from the Winery at Belle Meade Plantation. It was great!

Annual Fish Fry on Tellico Lake

Every year we have an annual fish fry on Tellico Lake with the seasonal residents at Lauderdale Cove campground.  My dad provides around 50 pounds of crappie that he fishes for all year.  Corrie and I usually set up a couple of fryers and fry the crappie up for about 125 people. It is a fun event and everyone brings a dish. Dad also makes a  huge batch of deviled eggs. They are always a crowd pleaser and never enough. He usually uses a simple recipe that I grew up on: Mayonnaise, Pickle Relish, Vinegar, Sugar, Salt, and Pepper.

Nashville Lifestyles August  Feature

I had a great interview with Nashville Lifestyles earlier in the year.  As a matter of fact, the article resulted in me getting approached to do a cookbook which I am currently working on.  Stay tuned in 2011!  Here is a link to the article…also a recipe for a Grilled Peach.
