Mmmmmm, cheese!


  1. Mmmmmmm... cheeeeeeeesy! I am SO there!
    xo, S. Ops

  2. Well, apparently, the word on the GCI is officially OUT. Chai Guy said he saw it posted on several, not-so-underground sites. So if you're going, get there EARLY. Chai also said he spoke with a friend who competed last year and will be grilling again this weekend and they're severely limiting the number of spectators. And judging by my experience (and the MAJOR crowd) last year, it might be just as tough to get more than 1 or 2 samples. So I might just stay home and grill up my own "Texsammy". Or two.


  3. I hear ya sister...GCI is being advertised EVERYWHERE this year...Thrillist, Daily Candy, etc. I'm coming to your place for a Texsammy! Love it...
