MELINAWOOD!

The theme of this year’s Albany Heritage Day was Albany goes Hollywood.  We here at Melina’s Bistro dove head first into coming up with a float; we also did a skit as we walked in the parade.  It was tons of fun, and very enjoyable to do.  I just hope you thought it was as fun.  Here are some photos of the float in the parade.  I hope you enjoy them.

We had our director, April in the truck so she could have a bird’s eye view of the commercial she was filming.  Her assistant Sam held up the Applause sign every time April said cut.

Our Diva, Monica, wore her most glamorous feather boa in pale pink,

while her assistant, Donna (in the pink hat) did all in her power to attend to her.

Our other Actress Capi (wearing the black dress), was perfectly on queue with each take.

The Sound Boom was run by Anne, while “filming”; Tina was behind the camera.

Dale (right) and Terry (left) were a great help in driving and throwing candy during the parade and also for setting it all up. It was a great float, and the whole parade went well.

We took first place in the parade for float creativity and wish to give thanks to all who helped.

Also here are some more photos from the float…

From Melinawood Productions and Melina’s Bistro, we would like to say thank you to all who helped make this parade season a fun and very enjoyable season.  Thank You!

Today At Melina’s

I got creative this morning and made some fresh, from scratch Italian Sausage Soup.  I hope you come in to enjoy it.  It is one of our more popular soups.

It is a soup that blends the best flavors Italy can offer. The zesty sausage is paired with the subtle spinach, both of which flavor the potato’s all in a broth that carries their flavors with some extra herbs to give the entire dish a taste inspired by the best of Italy.  Stop in for your taste of Italy today.

Muffin Mania

I suddenly got ambitious. Yes ambitious, and from that ambition I have come up with the Muffin of the Month. To me it is a Muffin of the Day. Nothing like the Soup of the Day, rather I am baking a different kind of muffin every day.  Some are turning out, others are not.  But the last few I have baked have, I started with the delectable

Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Chocolate Muffin,

then came the Apple Cinnamon Muffin,

which is our featured Muffin of the month.

That was followed by a Cranberry White Mocha one which didn’t work.  The batch was a flop, so no pictures, and we pretend it never happened, however I learn from my mistakes, and today’s Oatmeal Raisin Muffins turned out beautifully.

Oatmeal Raisin

Hope you stop in to taste some of the great flavors we now have in the muffin department.  All taste great with any and all coffee drinks.  More flavors are coming as the days and weeks go by.  You never know I may make your favorite next.
