Duck Carnitas with Chipotle Blackberry Sauce
I am on my way up into the mountains east of Los Angeles to attend Camp Blogaway Food Blogger Bootcamp for three days. From Friday noon until Sunday morning I will be immersed in food blogging lectures, foodie friends, eating and talking with 90 other food bloggers. I can hardly wait!
I went to Camp last year as a newbie food blogger, so this year I know all the fun and interesting things that are going to happen. Check out the Camp Blogaway website and see the sponsors and lecturers, and a list of all the attendees. Very impressive.
So you may be asking, what is that photo of Duck Carnitas with Chipotle Blackberry Sauce doing on the top of this post? Well, the first night, Patti of Worth the Whisk, the organizer of Camp Blogaway, is going to do a Parade of Bloggers. Each blogger is going to be introduced, and if she follows past Camp experience, she will be putting the home page of each blog on a big movie screen so we can all see who’s who. So I wanted a photo of mine that was very photogenic and everyone could see what I was about. I love that photo that I took at Baleen and posted about September 20, 2010.
Here are some photos I took last year at Camp Blogaway showing how everyone parks their cars pointing down the road in case we all need to make a fast get-away. Like a forest fire, for instance. You can see the inside of the lodge where we will be spending all our time with the lectures and eating. There is the big fire place in the lodge to sit around and make S’Mores.
These were the bunk beds in my cabin. It looks a little rustic, but the cabins have hot showers and are heated. Back in our cabin at the end of the night, my cabin mates and I talked food blogging well into the wee hours. So much fun.
And just in case, one more photo of mine, Mirepoix Meatloaf. I’ll talk to you all when I get back. Have a great weekend yourself. Bye.
