Alli was required to take a 6th grade class earlier this year called FACS (Family and Consumer Science). For those of you MY age (26 ish...) -- think "home ec."
Ever since, she is loving any opportunity to bake. On Monday she made some cookies to use as a prop in her skit for Spanish class -- which would rival any Betty Crocker bake-off winner!! So, be looking for her on the Food Network any day now......
We could call the show "You Eated my Cookie?" -- and I could be the raving lunatic stage mother just off camera! Sounds like a sure thing to me, and I'm off to put a designer apron on layaway right now!
Rachael Ray has just about run her course anyway, and if sweet ol' Paula Deen consumes three sticks of butter every day as is evidenced in her recipes, well...... there may be an opening in HER time slot as well.
Maybe I could be a guest one day on Alli's cooking show -- and demonstrate "101 ways to prepare peppers". You see, my sweet hubby came home from the grocery store with TEN red & green bell peppers a few days ago (they were 10 for $10, so he thought he had to buy that many). SO, our whole family menu this week is geared towards using them up in some way, shape or form.
We've already had stuffed peppers, put some on our salad, inside quesadillas, dicing them to top our morning cornflakes .... (I feel like that guy on "Forrest Gump" who's naming off the MANY ways you can prepare shrimp......)!! Pepper gumbo, pepper stroganoff, pepper shortcake ......
Stay tuned to see what the mystery pepper entree' will be next! (All those dishes come with a side of Tums and a Rolaids chaser, of course!)
