Monday, May 24, 2010 Drumroll, Please...

It's Fashion Week! Overnight my condo has been turned into a scaled replica of Bryant Park - complete with a gelato stand on the corner. NOT!

I spent last night googling recipes and fabrics. Thankfully, I spent yesterday afternoon with some friends at Linda's graduation celebration. Their fresh minds came up with a few great ideas. A Headbanging Hostess will always listen to suggestions. "Artists create, geniuses steal" - says my brilliant friend Ron Destro.

So...without further ado...

The Fashion Night Menu!

Bow Tie Chips

Italian Wedge

Beggar’s Purse with Mushroom Caps

Ropa Vieja with Shoestring Potatoes

Orange Chiffon Cake

Chocolate Silk Ice Cream

Accessories and fabrics dominate the menu. But what is this "Ropa Vieja?" OLD CLOTHES, baby! My kinda fashion! A Caribbean dish - as the story goes a man was having his family for dinner but he didn't have enough meat. So he got some of his old clothes and imbued them with his love. When he cooked the clothes his love for his family turned them into some kick-ass beef stew.

Reminds me of the modern day crock pot joke - you can cook a shoe in it and it'll taste good! That's actually not a joke. That's true. Try it!

So I have a busy week ahead of me. Today I'll start out slow. Off I go to get some candy necklaces and ring pops!

And STAY TUNED for the debut of my hot-ass aprons!!!

You won't be disappointed!!!!

Bang on, my peeps!
