wednesday, may 14th - a food patriots screening at stevenson highschool! sara lohrman's gourmet food class has prepared quite a spread for us and i cannot wait to taste their delicious food! filmmakers jennifer and jeff spitz will be on hand to discuss the movie afterwards and announce our new joint campaign to bring food patriots and their student engagement program to every school in lake county. can't make it but want to donate to the outreach program too? well, you can just go here my dears.
it's pretty darn exciting.

last but not least, i'm prepping up some pretty sweet rainbow wrap kits this week. it's your kiddo's first cooking kit! it includes everything your child (or yourself... ) needs to make a rainbow wrap (minus the food). my parent's basement is completely trashed and here's where i'm at with them so far... i can't wait till they're all cellophaned wrapped and tied with a pretty red bow. we'll be selling these for $35 at the festival and i've only made 48 of them so come grab them while they are still around!
i can't wait to see you ALL for #FRD2014!
...and i'll see you again after the dust has settled:) should have some super fun stuff to recap!!
here's my fab mother's day recap:
at the race track with my chimmie and her superstar engineering husband's race team. i got to meet their new rookie driver jack hawksworth and not only is he the most talented driver ever... he's british, so of course he's gonna win the indy 500. he's the best thing that has ever happened to indy car. i'm not biased at all.
and then i got home just in time to put in my purple boat and celebrate with my lovely mom.
to the mullies we gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!
