Hawaii 5-0, Sweet Genius and diverse sundries
Last night was the season finale of Hell's Kitchen, which I'll probably watch tomorrow morning and talk about Thursday. Tonight is the last of the regular Chopped Champions. This night's winner will join the other three and next should should be the end of that. It's only five shows long. Top Chef Texas should be starting soon, I believe, but I'm not sure. All I've seen is a brief promo featuring Padma, so she'll be returning.
We've watched all of the Sandwich King episodes so far, and I have to say I'm really enjoying them. Jeff Mauro, winner of Network Food Star, is personable and knowledgeable, and he makes damn good looking sandwiches. Last one we watched was a chicken Vesuvio, and a Polish sausage sandwich. I love how he goes to places in Chicago and visits with the restauranteurs and we get to see behind the scenes of the dishes he is recreating. If he has a few pauses while he searches for words, it's understandable - he's still new at this. I think he's off to a great start, though, and I hope to see him develop himself, and perhaps branch out beyond sandwiches.
Vampire Diaries began season 3 but I'll save my thoughts on that for later. Tomorrow is another Flash Fiction day, I hope to have two more tales for your delectation!
Comments? Questions? Anything at all? Don't hesitate to speak up, I'd love to hear from you!
Until next time, take care!
