Top Chef


Cream Puff has done it again with her Chef Gregory Barnhill, winning Best Entree and Best in Show at the Colorado Springs Chorale Chefs Gala . OK its not the Food Network and they are a AAA Four-Diamond restaurant and they did make surf and turf and sir sous vide short rib scallop and duck confit (Sorry Carrot Chopper) with asparagus and saffron potato puree. How can that dish not win!

Fast Friends

If you have been paying attention you will have noticed that the Carrott Chopper and the Buttery Stick have been tearing up the NCAA Div I track circuit as of late. Chopper was named to the Academic All-Mid-American Conference  squad for track and for Cross Country and has been breaking PR's like she rips the heads off of carrots. Winning a steeple chase event at UR and frequently being the top distance runner at UB. Meanwhile, Buttery Stick ran a PR of 3:45 at a 1500 meter event. For those of you keeping score at home, that's equivalent to a 4 :02 mile or a 4:00 mile if you ask Sticks Mom Mrs Prozak. This maven of the margarine is closing in on breaking the 4 min/mile barrier! Not too shabby! And that's two of the fastest 'friends' I know! I will refer to them collectively as Carrot Stick.

**Notice the mid-foot strike running form of Chopper and Stick as talked about in my previous blog.
