This has been an awesome year for cookbook signings! My friend Christine joined in my food dorkiness to trek down to Chelsea Market on a Saturday morning to pick up an autographed copy of The Pioneer Woman Cooks! We waited in line for hours, waiting to show off our I heart NY style shirts featuring the names of some of our favorite of Ree Drummond’s recipes. It was awesome. She was ridiculously adorable. She even started giving me ideas of what other things I could do with the recipe on my shirt! “Have you ever tried chopping those up on top of burgers? Or adding them to scrambled eggs?” After telling her that my husband would now love her even more, we got a few pictures with her and were on our merry little way to enjoy some lunch. It was an awesome day, and the cookbook looks fabulous. I can’t wait till the kitchen remodel is done so I can start trying some of those out!
(FYI my shirt says “I Love Bacon Wrapped Jalapeño Thingies” and Christine’s says “I Love Not Your Granny’s Mac & Cheese”)
