Why am I so confident about my future?
Because Celina Tio, of Julian restaurant in Kansas City, Missouri, not only cooked my supper on Wednesday night, but she also *personally* served me and Ryan our first two courses. She even said, "Enjoy". Or was it, "Bon Appetit"? Or perhaps, "I made this with my blood, sweat, and tears, and you'd better love it or else I'll sob for days!"? No matter, words were uttered in my presence, and in my general direction. And then I saw a smile. I'm sure it was aimed at me and not the family from southern Louisiana sitting nearby.
That makes me really awesome, of course. This chick was on Top Chef Masters! And The Next Iron Chef! And more importantly, she is in Kansas City, which is where I live, too!
Wanna see a pic of me and the chef?
See? Before you know it, I'll be on Star Search, because I'm *that* close to celebrity-hood. Oh, that's not on TV anymore? Okay, I'll be a Real Housewife of Kansas City. And you can say you knew me when...
P.S. Our meal was quite delicious. I really loved the shortrib "potroast" for my entree as well as everything else I ordered. Only thing missing was a squishy roll so that I could sop up all the yummy gravy.
