Happy Thanksgiving

It's that time of year and the holidays are upon us once again. Thanksgiving is such an interesting tradition. A time to see family, dress little kids up as miniature pilgrims and native Americans, a time for appreciation and reflection, the Macy's day parade on a t.v. somewhere in the house, a time for naps and antacids, all together adding up as a time to stop and celebrate.

So I wish you all well this Thursday and will be thinking of you on Friday! And if you have time, leave a comment about one thing for which you are grateful.

Coffee and cookies

Coffee news in an instant! I have been spoiled with a new iphone for my birthday. Which means that I can blog from the cafe about food and fun.
Today we will be busy baking cookies for the Holiday Lighting downtown Kansas City, KS. One batch of cookies we will be baking is the Potato Chip cookie - sounds interesting doesn't it?

Homage to the twinkie, it's a homemade twinkle!

And the winner is...

Stephane Suetos of the KCPT t.v. show, Uniquely Kansas City, won first place at the Chili Bowl this past Saturday with her recipe for Weezie's White Bean Chili.

The Chili Bowl was a memorable culinary event - the first of hopefully many at the Songbird Cafe. Two other must-mentions are Holly, art director of the Leedy Voulkos Art Center, and Brian, Roast Master at Broadway Roasting Co, who received 2nd and 3rd place at the contest.

All the contestants brought competitive and memorable chilis and the judges enjoyed bumping elbows and tasting chili on a cold, chilly day at the cafe. Thank you to all the contestants and judges! We'll make sure to do it again next year.
