firstly, we realized we should be living in charming east nashville and not stuffy bellemeade.
secondly, deep fried brie with strawberries, caramelized walnuts and raspberry brulee. enough said.
thirdly, we won second place! i’m going to put that down to my random knowledge of operatic lingo, marabeth’s great call with the orchid being thailand’s official flower…and perhaps the fact that there was this guy on our team with a photographic memory.
fourthly (is fourthly a word? leila?) we enjoyed a midnight snack of rock sugar.
and now we are both WIDE awake at 1am. when we really should be sleeping so we can pretend to function tomorrow.
