Do you remember that game show where couples would race through a grocery store trying to buy as much as they could in 60 seconds? “Supermarket Sweep”: that’s the name of it! I remember watching that when I’d fake sick and stay home from school to watch “The Price Is Right” (the major perk of being home sick) and then the lesser game shows that came on after (“Press Your Luck,” “The New Hollywood Squares”). Anyway: I spent the weekend setting up our new kitchen and yesterday I was ready to fill it up with stuff. So I gave myself permission to do my very own version of a Supermarket Sweep.
It happened, people. We found an L.A. apartment in a great location that’s clean, in a great neighborhood (Franklin Village, right beneath the Hollywood sign) and–most important to me–with a bright and sunny kitchen. I mean look at it. Wouldn’t you want to spend a lot of time in there cooking? We move in on September 1st.
I’m really bad with a secret. No, really. Case in point: I wasn’t supposed to share this particular secret until 12 PM, but I couldn’t hold it in any longer. You see, Craig just accepted an amazingly cool job offer in L.A. (more on that later) and we just gave notice here in New York that we’re leaving. And so, my loyal readers, a grand adventure awaits: Craig and I are moving to L.A. on September 1st!
Here’s the next video in the new series I’m doing for Food2.com. This time, I taste Chardonnay–one $10 bottle, one $15 bottle and one $20 bottle–to see if I can tell the difference. All the bottles were from California (two from the same vineyard) so the only real difference was price. Does price make a difference? Watch the video to find out!
