On Tuesday night, I hosted a special screening of the movie “No Reservations” for Boston area bloggers, friends, the press, and some radio contest winners, all compliments of Warner Brothers. The house was jam packed! (It was so crowded that I am sorry to say some folks had to be turned away at the door.)
For me, it was delightful to be able to actually meet some local bloggers. It’s funny how you immediately feel comfortable with people whose blog posts you have been reading. It was not the occasion to really chat, but a handshake and a “Hi, how are ya” was fun nevertheless!
My fears about hosting this event and speaking in front of a crowd were really not necessary. It was easy, relaxed and fun! (It did help tremendously to have a ton of my friends in the audience!)
Check out Nikas Culinaria for a great review of the movie!
I had so much fun making these up! I was hoping to be able to give them out myself, but was told that they will be sent (overnight) to the winners.
Each basket contained the complete fixings to make my Irish Bread. The winners just need to add 1 cup of milk, 5 and 1/2 Tablespoons of melted butter and 2 eggs to the ingredients in the basket and then bake the bread.
I included all the equipment necessary to make the bread and pre-measured the dry ingredients. It should take about 10 minutes to preheat the oven, prepare the pan, mix the ingredients and that’s it! 50 minutes later the bread is ready.
If any of you basket winners are reading this post, please do let me know how the bread turns out!
I would really like to thank Warner Brothers for giving us this special screening of No Reservations. I had a ball!
