Many Leftovers, No Waste and Bob Barker

Bob Barker says "Come on down!"

I’ve had the pleasure of hosting Wasted Food’s Jonathan Bloom both yesterday and today as he’s been in town for his whirlwind West coast book tour.

Bloom took to the podium last night to discuss the very serious subject of food waste, and the well attended event gave the author his deserved respect. That is, until he somehow knocked the microphone from the podium and had to complete his talk holding it á la The Price is Right’s Bob Barker.

Which was my cue to pull out the camera.

Luckily, we composed ourselves enough to enjoy a nice get together at the house, enjoying the company of Heather of Mile73, Dave of Daveknowspdx, Sara of GoGingham, Christopher of GleanOrganics and even a few fine folks who are not bloggers! (I know, I know, hard to find in this day and age!)

Of course I prepared too much food, but fear not little non-consumers. There will be no waste, as these were definitely bestovers of the finest sort.

Thank you to everyone who attended this event, even though there was no Plinko.

What, in the name of God, is Plinko?

It’s a game on “The Price is Right” game show.

Katy–you make a great host and an even better photographer. Thanks for putting me up, putting up with me and having that fun gathering.

In my defense–that mic was like a booby trap! But I’m totally glad you captured the moment. And I always had a soft spot for Plinko.
