Boozy Goodness on September 19th

The next IMBB? has been announced over at There's a Chef in My Kitchen. Is My Blog Burning? 8: Lift Your Spirits High takes place on September 19th, 2004. Each dish submitted to Donna in Harrisburg must feature wine or spirits as a central component of the dish. I'm guessing that excludes beer.

I like this theme and I've got ideas already. Perhaps a meal that's alcohol fueled at every step from appetizer to dessert will be in order. I had a few of those in college, though there it wasn't really "cooking" so much as it was "pouring" (and then "passing out" followed by "waking", then "groaning" and "regretting" followed by "wondering where my left shoe went".)

Usual rules apply. Make the dish sometime between now and the 19th, post it on the 19th, e-mail Donna to let her know you've finished. Wait until write-up and enjoy the creativity of the wonderful food-blogging community.

Barrett: thanks for the shout out... yes, been there too. I will try to resist temptation to imbibe as I read all the entries... don't know if that's possible, though!! Did you ever find your shoe!!!

Looking forward to the event. Cheers.

Good grief, Barrett, how could you possibly know that, among a small group of my friends for a brief period in the late 1980s, "losing one's shoe' was pathetically lame slang for getting regrettably plastered?

Oh, my, I think it's in my yearbook under "dislikes."

I can't say I had any special insight, but if you happen to see an orphaned black Oxford, Men's size 13, let me know, will you?

Whoohoo! This should be a good one. I have some excellent ideas already.

Losing one shoe must be a universal story! I can go it one better, though: a friend of mine from university woke up the next day missing the sole of one shoe. We never figured that one out...or how he made it home alive after being seen on 43rd Street in Chicago eating ice cream at four in the morning...
