Can't type, gotta tune in...Bobby Flay to talk about sliders, Bill Geist to talk about pies, lots and lots and lots of food-related topics this morning. What more could we ask for? :)
Happy Sunday morning, folks!
I believe there are usually clips you can view online once the show has aired.
I was truly inspired by the Judith Jones segment. I've been doing a lot more cooking for one lately. If I make it to 85, I want to be like this woman.
I'm watching this segment with a far-away friend this morning and commenting back and forth through e-mail. My friend remarked, "I try to let cooking for one be equally as pleasant. I enjoy choosing the music and wine and then beginning the mise en place. I made a batch of asparagus soup last night and later this morning I get to enjoy a cold bowl. yum! Nice looking skirt steaks!" I'll second that. Let's all sing "America the Beautiful" together and give it a try. :)
Speaking of mise en place, I really enjoyed the woman teaching the kids, too: "MISE EN PLACE! MISE EN PLACE! I've said it a million times, EVERYTHING IN ITS PLACE!" How cool was she? How can you not love someone so passionate about food who only wants her students to succeed?
My friend also commented, "My chili dog with chorizo, onions and peppers is actually better without the hot dog." I'm sure that's true, too!
re: c oliver
If I disclosed my friend's real name, I'd have to kill you. ;) The show airs 9 a.m. Eastern. Hope you can catch it!
I also was very interested in the Alton Brown segment, though I don't usually watch him anymore. When he first started, I was drawn to his unusual approach. What caught my attention was his weight loss. At first, I thought, "Oh, no...they're going to tell us he got very sick..." but no, he consciously chose to eat healthier and lost 50 pounds! FIFTY POUNDS! Bravo, Alton!
On that note, THIS kat is going for a LONG walk outside...and back to salads for lunch in the coming week. It is truly a challenge to love to cook and to eat and to keep calories in control. I was glad to see this addressed on today's show.
Had some good segments.
But did they really need Bobby Flay talking about Burgers? I think he dose that every year. Beside the slider thing had been around for a while really nothing newsworthy there. Give some air time to someone else. The same goes for the profile on Alton Brown. There are many other interesting people they could have picked.
I'm laughing at myself. I thought this was a thread about NFL football, the pre-game shows and the good eats/drinks we make throughout the day while watching the games.
I love Marlena Spieler and her Macaroni and Cheese cookbook. She made five delicious mac n cheese entrees and she barely got any air time. I was so looking forward to THAT segment. But..I enjoyed looking at a $95.00 plate of mac n cheese from the New York restaurant.
