Final Mug Up of 2012
It was a great final Mug Up on Rocky Neck Sunday. Although we didn’t do food competitions this year like last, only the blueberry bake one, I have to say that Evelyn Howe won the best contribution to a Mug Up this season with her pumpkin cheesecake with praline topping – which topped Ann Kennedy’s candied bacon with chocolate sauce, which came in really close to Gigi Mederos’ pickled zucchini which doesn’t sound like much, but was tastebud tantalizing. Many people brought wonderful additions to the Mug Up fare this season, but these three homemade contributions were spectacular. Thanks Evelyn, Ann and Gigi.
It was nice to have Melissa and Bill at Mug Up as well as regulars Donna and Rick Ardizzoni, Sue Lovett and Don Boye from Island Arts & Hobby (which is a great art supply store for those of you artists out there who haven’t checked it out yet – no need to go to Beverly unless you just feel like driving). Also lovely Brenda Malloy, Caroline Kwas, Sinikka Nogelo, and the ever handsome Ed Collard and Marty Luster were there. The highlight of Mug Up was getting to see Paul Morrison dance gangnam style!
Until next season!
