If you've been avidly checking back at Blog Appetit and wondering where all the new posts have gone, here's your answer: I've been out of town on business.
While that has temporarily interrupted Blog Appetit's normal programming, the good news is that where I was out of town was Las Vegas and I have lots of photos to upload and a few meals to report on. Watch this space for an update (probably by this weekend).
Also, if you are looking for my take on the Top Chef finale, I haven't seen it yet and have carefully avoided finding out who won or any of the hopefully juicy details of the final episode of season two. If the episode doesn't totally exasperate me I hope to post my reaction (better late than never) after I watch it. (The future pastry chef and Kramer Techno Czar recorded it for me on the DVR while I was away.) Look for this, too, by the weekend.
