Me and Paula Love Butter

I just finished reading Paula Deen's It's Not All About the Cookin'...her memoir. I'm a big fan of Paula Deen because she seems real and she cooks with butter. Her food is home cooking versus gourmet and since I spent the last 20 + years cooking casseroles loaded with cheese and cream of mushroom soup, I feel like I have a kinship with her. In this book, she writes about some very personal issues......from her anxieties to the breakup of her first marriage. She's where she is today because of alot of hard, physical work. She didn't start her catering lunch business, called The Bag Lady, until she was 42...proof it's never too late to start or change careers.
Look at her now.

In the book she says she finds the SNL spoofs about her funny. If you don't know of Paula Deen, where have you been? And you won't find this funny. But having just finished this book where she writes like she talks...this skit made me laugh.

There ain't nothin' better than some booter and awl.

  1. Here's something weird. I had a dream about Paula LAST night! What's even more weird is that it's not the first time I've had a dream about here. Maybe it's her every woman appeal? Honestly the Barefoot Contessa is my all time fave and I've never had a dream about her. Maybe it's because she doesn't have 2 cutie boy sons.
