Wow... I can't believe it's been over two weeks since my last official post. I'm so sorry for being MIA this long.
In my last post I mentioned Kelly, whom I work with. Well he and his partner, Dean Simon, have been working on a small project that has come to fruition with me as one of their... helpers.

It's a gourmet waffle sandwich concept in Old Towne Orange called Bruxie.
Yesterday was our first day of being open and it was very different than what we were all expecting. One of the first things to happen.. channel 2 (CBS) showed up at the window to do an interview! Holy moly.. the story ran at 2PM then again at around 4:50PM. We were slammed all day long... LITERALLY. We went NON-STOP from 11am to 8pm when we completely ran out of everything.
We've been getting some amazing comments on our Facebook and already an average of a 4 star rating on Yelp! Thanks to all the staff and crew.. we're settling into a rhythm and it's looking awesome.
I've been putting in a lot of hours into trying to aid in Bruxie's success so unfortunately for this blog, you readers, and ever so sadly... the Project Food Blog... this will have to take a backseat.
The next challenge is a video and they've been more than gracious with the time frame. But... unfortunately, I just don't have time to make a video! C'est la vie. Just bad timing is all..
If you're in Orange County, especially in the Orange area, please come see us! We're located on 292 North Glassell Street. Check the website for the full menu. Oh and, I did all the food photography. =D
