This past Labor Day Weekend was spent painting (a very happy light lavender) and organizing my middle-schooler's bedroom. By Monday, I was tired of grabbing food on the go and wanted to make something really good. My high schooler requested Laham bil-ajeen.
Laham bil-ajeen is Arabic that translates to English as 'dough with meat.' It is a popular dish in Lebanon. I like to refer to it as a cross between a hamburger and pizza. (Yes, I can hear that collective sigh coming from the Lebanese community about at my descriptor.)

Since I live in Sacramento, was a no-brainer for me to sign up. I am registered and ready to participate!
I have agreed to publish at least three blog posts about the conference for a registration discount. All opinions are my own (which is one of my favorite things about blogging!). This is the first of three posts.
I may not be very good at this food blogging thing, but I do have potential. Or at least I think I have potential. What do I have to loose from attending? A couple hundred bucks and a vacation day from my day job. What do I have to gain from attending? So much! The IFBC has a great program (check it out). I am looking forward to:
- Networking with other bloggers - very important for an introvert like me!
- Learning how to make money from my blog.
- Embracing social media, which is somewhat difficult for this reserved Gen Xer.
- Improving my writing.
- Seeking opportunities that may be available for food bloggers.
- Ella Dining Room & Bar
- Mulvaney's B&L
- Thai Princess
- Thai Basil
- The Waffle Experience
- Burgers & Brew

I'm looking forward to meeting some new people in Sacramento!
