Blogger Get Together

Blogger Get Together

Greetings fellow bloggers. We’ve posted twice regarding our blogger get together on June 5 at Big Dude’s near Greenback,Tn. This will be our final blog post and if you plan to come, we ask that you send an email directly to Larry at by May 21, and he will correspond directly with you thereafter. The details so far are:

Date: June 5, 2010 – rain or shine

Time : Noon – til everyone leaves, eat at 1:30

Who: Any fellow blogger who’s willing to make the trip and significant other, or not.

Food: We thought we’d provide a few main dishes and let everyone else bring their favorite. If bringing something is inconvenient, please don’t let that keep you from coming. We’ll have the kitchen available if you need it and there is a frig, power, and a grill at the dock for keeping items hot or cold.

Drinks: We’ll provide tea and soft drinks but feel free to BYOB.

So if you’d like to meet some of the people you talk with regularly, or you’re just hanging around the house that day, or you need a place to go for a day trip, or a weekend in the smokies, or….., come join us. If you need more info to help decide, contact Larry at the email above.

Sweet Tamale Corn Cakes - 2

Chris - 0

I've tasted this dish once a month ago at Chop House and loved them so much I thought I'd try to make them. I used the corn cake from this recipe as a starter. My first batch failed last night and my second attempt ended just before midnight. No worries....going after it again today, just need a trip to get more corn.


  1. Good luck Chris, I know you'll get it right, then you'll share you trick with us, and will flub it up one or two more times, then we will all be happy with our new recipe.
    Do tell where the problem was that you ran in to, so they not so skilled, that a nice way of saying sometimes I suck, know how to handle the ins and outs.

  2. You guys have fun. If I was traveling down there, which I had planned on it, I would be joining you, but hubby had to take a mini vaca, so that blew my plans out of the water, you know what they say- take it or lea...lose it in this case!

  3. Start pooling your frequent flyer miles among all the attendees then send 'em to me 'cuz I wanna go. Seriously though. Have fun! GREG

  4. Chris, I just contacted Big Dude. We've postponed our plans to go on vacation by one day and hope to be able to be there and meet everyone.
