let’s talk about paula.
i love paula deen. obviously she does not belong in the healthy living realm. but watching her cooking shows has always been a delight. while my dad scoffs at every “y’all” and stomps out of the room, they’ve always made me smile.
her little kitchen + those puppies + her southern charm-filled life make me feel comforted and happy. just like with blogging, i’m sure it’s not the whole truth, or not-quite-reality television, or at least incredibly idealized. but it’s a cooking show. and i loved it.
i’m wildly against the idea that she came out with diabetes while still cooking like she cooks and also getting paid to represent a diabetes drug. that’s pretty unacceptable.
but all this going on? did the companies and backers and brands know exactly what happened before they dropped her? i don’t know. but i’m curious. i don’t think the full story has been determined. the speculation could definitely be true. it might not all be in the past, what she’s been accused of. which would be unprofessional and not ok. but the woman making claims also requested $1.2 million and then took this to media when she didn’t receive it. but this ny times article did make me stop and think.
so i think what i’m thinking is there are always two sides.
but let’s get back to the cooking show. because that’s really what she is to me. and i’ll miss that southern charm, no matter how staged. how about some recipes?
that’s really all i found in my 3-minute search. don’t want too many of these delicious sounding recipes. i’ve already had dessert today.
it’s been thunderstorming like crazy this week. and it has happened at 5:00 every day this week. ummm, that’s quitting time. wednesday we all huddled up at the window to watch the sideways rain and pitch black sky. yesterday, i left 15 minutes early and it started raining as soon as i left the parking lot. and today, we all waited it out because there was lightning everywhere.
have i mentioned what a sissy i am?
it’s ok. i’m blogging + drinking a blueberry mojito. getting ready for weight watchers in the morning. i think something sounds a little off about that. ;) ah well. cheers to the weekend.
