#BlogPaws Cuisine-Semi-Wordy Wednesday

Here it is Wednesday and I STILL haven't recovered from the whirlwind that was BlogPaws 2013!
I have some things I want to write about, but want to process everything in my mind, and organize my notes and thoughts first.

Being a "foodie", I found the meals at BlogPaws 2013 to be quite pleasing to the palate! My husband often teases me,  saying that I can remember every meal I have ever eaten and can provide the dates and times that the meals were consumed. For those who have seen me that comes as no surprise!

So, feast your eyes on some of the bounty that was at BlogPaws 2013! Kudos to the Sheraton Premiere At Tysons Corner!


The culinary delights began
at the Nutrish
(who was my sponsor)
private dinner Wednesday night.
Super delicious Tiramisu!!

One of our delicious lunches!
This is just a sampling
of what we had to choose from
on the buffet table.
Garlic bread, salad,
chicken, sausage
and ravioli
CHEESECAKE!!
A BlogPaws tradition!!
The Nose-to-Nose Awards Dinner
Turkey, stuffing,
Mashed potatoes in a Martini glass!
There were toppings such as chives, mushrooms,
and garlic to "top" your potatoes!
I found the Thanksgiving cuisine
to be a an unusual but brilliant choice.
One, for the symbolism of giving thanks...
Thanks to the BlogPaws and Pet360 team
for all of their hard work making
this conference a success!
Two, giving thanks for being
lucky enough to
spend an amazing few days
with some of the BEST people on the planet,
PET LOVERS
AND...
Who DOESN'T like
COMFORT FOOD?

  3. Typical of my human: for the awards dinner, she topped her mashed potatoes with a generous helping of truffle oil and a BIG-ASS dollop of caviar! I wish she had packed up some of that turkey for me.

  15. Biggest piece of cheesecake I could find and I ate it all. Two not one Danish at every breakfast. Cherries Jubilee! Geoff made a batch of cookies and I had six! I don't usually eat sweets because no one puts them in from of me, but given the chance...!

  19. TW will NEVER forget that turkey. She didn't know turkey could be so soft and moist. MOL. All in all it wasn't as bad as the food they served at the last Blogpaws she was at where she almost starved to death. She's just happy she skipped the pizza and ate out that night.

  29. Our mom liked the food, too. She also enjoyed meeting you and all the other crazy pet bloggers. We are enjoying some of the cat treats she brought home. We prefer cat treats to tiramisu, but we would have enjoyed some of that turkey...

  30. The food (and the company) was excellent and lots of it! Since Coco was fortunate to be able to partake of the turkey, she also gave it her paw of appurruval! Teri said she missed having bacon and sausage for breakfast, though...
