Woah. Today totally flew by! But, time flies when you’re having fun, right?
This afternoon, I had the opportunity to enjoy lunch with a CNC reader and then chat with one of Mal’s colleagues. The focus of both meetings was one of my favorite subjects: pugs blogging!
Madison, a Junior at Princeton University, invited me to lunch to discuss food blogging as part of the research for her mini-thesis. She wanted to meet informally, so I could give her a better idea of what exactly blogging means and entails for me. Madison also wanted to see me in action! She even snapped a couple of photos of me taking photos of my food!
Madison and I had a TON in common, including our love for running, pugs, and bread. We love carbs! We had no problem finding things to talk about during lunch!
Madison and I went to the Rustic Kitchen for lunch. I ordered the Grilled Vegetable Panini, which was served with portobello mushroom, zucchini, summer squash, roasted red peppers, mozzarella, and basil aioli on ciabatta. I especially loved the bread, which was buttery and a tad crispy.
On the side, the panini came with mixed greens.
After lunch, I said goodbye to Madison and met Mal and one of his colleagues, who wants to start her own food blog. She had a lot of questions for me, so we met over a drink at the Union Brewhouse to chat.
While blabbing on and on about blogs (I just can’t help myself), I drank a Goose Island Honker’s Ale.
Mal and I are hosting a brunch at our house in the morning, so I’m off to cook and clean!
