My Top Stories

To say I'm behind in my blogging is a huge understatement. In fact, I am three weeks behind, and I apologize. When life gets hectic, something's got to give, and this time around, Big Hungry was it. And I still haven't completely settled down, but now that my sister's been married off and we've crowned a new Miss Thousand Islands, I'm hoping things can get back to normal.

So, I still don't exactly have my head on straight enough to compose a review for you, even though I have them on deck for Ebishura Sushi in Vestal, and two great spots in DC. This week, I can tell you that I got an awesome new T-shirt from Flavour Gallery/James Beard Foundation:

And that I'm participating in the Wendy's Walk for Kids this weekend to support Mom's House in Johnson City. It would be totally rad if you would pledge me, baby:


Other than that, some news briefs:

We had my sister's rehearsal dinner at Ruyi Japanese Steakhouse in Watertown. The food is still good, although I felt like the hibachi show was lacking some of the luster of the restaurant's early days.

I bought Daylight Donuts (Endwell) for my department this morning - still delicious!

Podlaise is a new Polish restaurant in Endicott, and I'm dying to try it. Anyone for perogies?

I'm judging the Broome County Legislature's Fresh From the Farm Blueberry Throwdown tomorrow in Binghamton, and can't wait to tell you all about it!

I am actually staying home this weekend, and I'm going to knock out a bunch of posts. Maybe I'll give you guys two-a-weeks to make up for my absence. Stay tuned! My hunger is big; my personality is bigger!


  1. Mmmmmm... pierogies .... and blueberries.... (but maybe not together).

    1. Hmm, I think maybe a blueberry and cream cheese mixture inside a pierogi e and sprinkled with powdered sugar could work. And with the Polish concentration in this area, maybe we'll get that tomorrow as a preparation!
