IT’S DECEMBER ALREADY!!!! ACKK! What happened to November?!?! I did manage to fit in a few fun things this last month. My girlfriends and I checked out a new bar in Ferndale, Syndicate, and we saw a musical at the Stagecrafters Baldwin Theatre in Royal Oak. The great American Trailer Park… it was raunchy and ridiculous! I savored every moment and laughed my butt off. The production has moved on but if you ever get a chance to see this show, I highly recommend it. I was impressed with the talented crew at the Baldwin Theater, the actors were very professional, especially for a local group. I’ll be sure to see another show there.
Michael and I had a lovely brunch at Hazel & Ravines in Birmingham with super fresh oysters and my favorite menu item of theirs, the Georgian Bread. It’s like a boat of pizza dough filled with warm salty cheese, they crack an egg yolk on top and stir it in right at the table. It’s amazing! I’ve put Chef Max on task to figure out a dough recipe for us as he is the “pizza master”. I think we’ll see this on our Chalkboard menu soon. Hint, hint Max…
Back when the sun was still with us, and a few leaves still on the trees, my friend Lisa and I walked along the Rouge River with Brisket and ended up at EM (Employee Meal) in Birmingham. I would describe it as nouveau Mexican cuisine. We enjoyed the tasty Margaritas with bright, spicy flavorful food to match.
My free time in December will be filled with shopping, baking and hopefully a few holiday parties. I know it will be a whirlwind of activity!
