One of yesterday’s FNCE highlights was getting to meet Ellie Krieger and get a free, signed copy of her new book, Weeknight Wonders, at the California Table Grape Commission booth.

She is as nice in person as she appears on TV. She spoke at FNCE in 2012 and 2013, and is a wonderful speaker. Totally worth standing in line for 45 minutes!

I have lots more to report on from FNCE, but I’ll wait until I’m back home and have time to process. I’ve been going, going, going from pre-dawn until many hours past dusk!
