Madison Food & Wine Show = Heaven

Do you like to cook? Do you like to eat? Then the Madison Food & Wine Show is something you need to check out this weekend. Happening Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Exhibition Hall at the Alliant Energy Center, this is one of my favorite parts of the fall. Here's how it works. When you go into the Exhibition Hall, you'll be given a wine glass (that you can take home), and a bag to hold goodies in, as well as info about all the exhibitors. It's going to seem overwhelming at first..but give yourself a chance to get your bearings, and then start wandering. You'll find delicious foods from a wide variety of restaurants, caterers, and other food producers (think cheese!) Everything from entrees to desserts. You can pick up lots of great ideas along the way, meet awesome people who know all about the food or other product that they have for you to try. Ooh..I almost forgot the wine!  So many wines to sample! It's a great way to discover new wines without having to risk spending a lot of money on something you don't like. Not big into wines? No big deal. I'm not a real wine person, but I still find plenty of items to try..and yes, there's beer there too. Throughout the three days, there will be plenty of demonstrations..and the Dueling Chefs competition is always entertaining. Look for Triple M at the show. We'll be handing out suggestions for great Triple M Triple combos featuring entree, beverage, and album. Here are the ones I came up with: British Invasion Picnic LP:  The Who Sell Out Entree: Good Old American Hamburger with beans on the side Drink: Newcastle Beer Breakfast in America LP: Supertramp's Breakfast in America Entree: Omelette with spinach, mushrooms and Wisconsin colby cheese Drink: Mimosa with California sparkling wine and Florida orange juice A Texican treat LP:  Los Lonely Boys debut Entree: Texas Tamale Pie and Drink: Chameleon El Rey Beer Find out more about the Food & Wine Show here.

Thank You For Your Support
I'm very grateful to everyone who helped me move on. It's sad and surprising to see Sam Lyons go. My wife was even voting for him.

World's Worst iPod: Tiffany "I Think We're Alone Now"
A lot of people have fond memories of that little red-haired mallrat from the 1980s, Tiffany. And they wanted nothing more this morning than to hear her hit "I Think We're Alone Now." Now the only good thing about Tiffany having a hit with this...

Tonight’s song
Dear Superstars, The hours grow closer and closer as I wait to see which one of us is going home tonight. For last week's performance I gave my all to "Drive-By Heartache" and I hope that the judges heard the lyrics and the melodies. For me a song...

Most expensive dishes from around the world. ~Stevi
I never thought I would see the day where chocolate pudding showed up on a list of most expensive dishes. I feel like someone should contact Bill Cosby about this. More outrageiously priced food here; be ready to pick your jaw off the floor. ~Stevi
My Love For Caffeine
I had so much fun with last weeks challenge and performance. The first elimination was really nerve racking and losing Carrel was a big bummer. I am so glad she still played her song because it was BEAUTIFUL. This week, the challenge is...
