Sharing Meals Through Technology

Friends and family have been supporting my blogging endeavors in the best sharing their culinary adventures and photographing their dining experiences. I've been getting great pics and synopses by text, Tweet and Facebook. Join the party....

My friend Linda visited an interesting hybrid in Omaha recently...the Jaipur Indian restaurant and brewpub. This pic is of an Jalapeno ale (pictured at left) that was included in a beer sampler they offered. Linda raved about most of the beers as well as the food but said this ale got the better of them...very spicy! Visit their site at

Sarah Jane sent me a pic of the French Provencial sandwich (pictured at right) she enjoyed at Bluegrass Kitchen in Charleston, WV. My friend Julie Britton Haden spoke of this place in her Foodie Five. The sandwich is on Artisan Ciabatta bread with artichoke hearts, a homemade organic pumpkin seed pesto, sun-dried tomatoes, avocado spread, organic greens, goat cheese and provolone. SJ ordered it with free-range chicken. Bluegrass Kitchen specializes in vegetarian and omnivorous dishes using WV and Appalachian ingredients. The owners also own the Empty Glass, still my all-time fave live music joint as well as Tricky Fish, serving "locally-grown beach-shack food" which SJ also raves about. I can't wait to check this place out. Check them out at

Ronnie and Jeff recently returned from their trip to France and Ronnie was kind enough to take pics of his food
and post them on his Facebook page. The first pic is of some yummy-looking Afghan food (pictured at left) he ate there.....zucchini in a curried tomato and yogurt sauce. The second pic (top of the page at right) is of a decadent chocolate cake (torte?) with chocolate mousse on a hazelnut crust he had at the Eiffel Tower.

We'll be joining the boys for Ronnie's birthday dinner at Justus Drugstore tomorrow night....stay tuned!

PSSSST! We still need to go to Taste of Asia in Teays Valley. I'm dying for their crab and calimari appetizers and I think I NEED one of everything on their Thai menu.

Done and done. By the way, I was watching Rick Bayless make ceviche on public television the other night and by the time it was done, I was in a dreamlike state. I gotta get me some ceviche...
