Got it!!! Mon, 05/9/11 7:47 PM (permalink)

 
The 2011 Roadfood book is out and I just picked up my copy.  It is great to see Roadfood forum favorites included, such as Farmer's Kitchen and Charlie's Pool Room.  Can't wait to spend the rest of the night reading through it!

      Well Ann, when I mentioned previously that I bought the 2008 edition at Barnes & Noble, I was admonished for it.  So, I definitely didn't buy it there.

        There's a surprisingly large number of places listed that haven't been in previous editions OR been written up yet on this website.

                I just picked mine up! 
                 
                I can't believe the number of new restaurants listed in this edition! 

                Some of you know I've been taking a back seat to the and have been out of commission (Roadfood  wise) due to a couple of expected (more condo renovations) and unexpected snags. 
                Without going into any specifics, the bad news is that PREDNISONE sucks! and the good news is that I think I'm the only person who has lost almost 30 lbs while on the stuff which explains why I've been avoiding looking at all of the trip reports  over the last couple of months, however the even better news is that finally I'm being tapered off the  prednisone which means I'll get to have a life again and it appears a couple of baseball/roadfood trips coming up this summer!)
                 
                Anyway, I skimmed through the book and I cannot think of anything more flattering than receiving a couple of nods from Jane and Michael in the new book, however I cannot begin to thank the Stern's for the amazing  Roadfood that they have introduced me and countless others to during the last 3 and a half decades (ok for me it's been just  over 20 years)

                      Like BB I am getting mine through my local purveyor of books...
                      He said give him 2 weeks to get it in
                       
                      B&N or Amazon I would be reading it tonight

                        Much deserved IMHO.  You better tell your mom to be ready to make lots more sour cream raisin pies!

                          I got mine!  I'm ready to argue with Michael Stern about Hubba and Texas in Port Chester.

                            The book is officially broken in.  There are already mustard and spaghetti sauce stains on it!
