Happy Holidays from Las Vegas!
Happy Holidays! This is just a fun blog to share some of my adventures on our annual Xmas in Vegas vacation as well as some end-of-the-year news updates. We’ve been celebrating Christmas in Las Vegas every year since 1999. And yes, believe it or not, some of my best writing gets done while in Vegas. So it’s also a good luck writing tradition for me as well.

Our view of Vegas!
Welcome to the first FOODIE FRIDAY blog of 2012! Below is a fun account of some of the “good eats” we had on our annual Xmas in Vegas vacation.
I’ve been going to Vegas for Christmas almost every year since 1999. It’s just a fun tradition. You could say I’m a total expert now on all things Vegas. Especially when it comes to foodie gourmet “good eats” at affordable “Occupy Wall Street” prices.

The Feast Nearby by Robin Mather
Welcome to FOODIE FRIDAY! For the month of September, we’ll be celebrating “THE FEAST NEARBY,” the latest book release by my friend, ROBIN MATHER. Today’s blog features Part 2 of our Q&A with Robin. (You can read Part 1 of the Q&A here: http://paulayoo.com/blog/?p=899)
ROBIN MATHER is a veteran food columnist and journalist, as well as a non-fiction book author. I met her when we both wrote for The Detroit News back in the early ’90s. Her food column at the News always made me hungry! She often used food as a metaphor to discuss larger life issues. That tradition continues with her latest book, THE FEAST NEARBY: How I lost my job, buried a marriage, and found my way by keeping chickens, foraging, preserving, bartering, and eating locally (all on forty dollars a week) (Ten Speed Press ’11).

Part 2 of our two-part Q&A is posted today. Stay tuned for a special recipe from Robin Mather for our Foodie Friday blog to be posted on Fri. 9/23. Many thanks to Robin for taking time out of her busy schedule to join us every FOODIE FRIDAY for the month of September!
During the month of September, I’ll also be hosting a book giveaway contest where you have the chance to win a signed copy of Robin’s book! You can participate simply by letting me know via our COMMENTS section or by emailing me at paula at paulayoo dot com with your contact info. I will collect a list of names and pick a winner at random and announce the winner on Friday 9/30. The contest is open between now and Thursday 9/29/11. So join in on the fun!
