We did it!  Stir It 28 was a success.  Thank you to everyone for your support and enthusiasm.  Greg from Sippity Sup provided his home, and Natalie from The Liquid Muse and Grey Goose whipped up cocktails.  Our array of food from bloggers, caterers and chefs was amazing, and everyone went home well fed and happy.  A big thanks to the event volunteers who moved everything along smoothly as well. All in all, the Los Angeles team rocked it out Stir It 28-style!

The collecting of donations for Stir It 28 will continue through the 28th, so there’s a full week of the fundraiser left.  If you would like to donate to the cause, please visit Flanboyant Eats or Coco Cooks and click the Paypal donate button.  Look out for an update in early March on total funds raised!  And stay tuned for lots of pics, recipes, and info about the event itself that will go up on the Facebook event page.

Also going on this week, as if there wasn’t enough going on already, we’re taking part in the Week of Eating In Challenge. Now for us, this isn’t really a stretch, as we generally eat in more than we eat out. We wanted to share this with you, however, just to bring even more awareness to the benefits of cooking your own food. We all know it’s generally better for your health and well-being, but we’ll be the first to contest it also can do wonders for your wallet. It’s really about conscientiousness, thought, in the end — having a greater understanding of what exactly you’re eating, where it comes from, and what impact it’s all having on the planet. And of course, well, it’s fun! Joyous even. What’s better than creating the meals you want, when you want, and then enjoying at home?

So, we’ve been excitedly sharpening our knifes, stocking our fridges, and whipping through the cookbook shelf in preparation for this official Challenge.  We’ll be fending for ourselves for breakfast, lunch, and dinner all week long.  Hope you’ll dine in along with us this week!

2/22 UPDATE: Have we told you that Los Angeles’ Stir It 28 event rocked the house? Well it did. Literally. We’ve posted photos from Stir It 28 on Facebook. Come check them out here! You’ll see our beautiful venue thanks to Greg at Sippity Sup, our signature cocktails thanks to Natalie Bovis-Nelsen of The Liquid Muse, Christophe Namer of Grey Goose vodka, Sutter Home wine and Fre Alcohol-Removed wine and all of the food from bloggers, chefs and caterers, including Gisele Perez of Small Pleasures Catering and Barrie Lynn Krich, The Cheese Impresario. If you want to see the event from the eyes of some of our foodie friends, check out The Food Addicts, Uncouth Gourmands, South Bay Rants ‘n Raves and Domestic Divas. The fundraising officially ends on Sunday, February 28th. If you were unable to attend and would like to donate, visit Flanboyant Eats or Coco Cooks to give!
