Rachel's Promotional Event

Last week Rachel's held a promotional event hosted by Pim of Chez Pim. The new product in their line is their take on cottage cheese.

The flavor in the picture above is sun dried tomato. My friend Mike who came with me thought it reminded him of pizza. I kind of agree, but I had a real hard time eating it. I am not a cottage cheese fan. Clumpy soup, yeech. If you're into cottage cheese, you might like this.


They also had a sampling of their yogurts, which I have had before and actually like. They are available at Whole Foods and a number of grocery stores (Shoprite and Pathmark downstate, Price Chopper and maybe Honest Weight upstate). Their Pomegranate blends were the best, although the Pomegranate Blueberry was a bit on the sweet side. Vanilla Chai was good, considering vanilla anything outside of baked goods and ice cream aren't my favorite.

My friend Mike and I happily indulged in the drinks and appetizers that were served at the event. In the picture above is the bruschetta shot, I have no idea what exactly is in it, but it was tasty. There was also a Cucumber Collins and another drink I can't remember the name, but it reminded me of sangria. Appetizers included hummus bites, grilled monkfish with red pepper foam, mozzarella sticks with a red pepper dipping sauce, and this grilled grapefruit thing.

It was a great time, and I got to see some bloggers that I follow- although I only talked to one of them, Nichelle Stevens of Cupcakes Take the Cake. I got the fear inducing, "so what is your blog about?" question a few times, along with the "so why Under the Copper tree?" and I felt like my answers weren't good enough. Darn you blogging insercurities!

I am not always like this- throw me in room with pre-meds and med students and I can hold my own quite well. But this... I feel so very noobish. Oh well, even though I may not be very good at this networking thing now, hopefully I'll just get better at it.
