When I first started this blog, the idea of meeting Ina Garten seemed like the biggest, most out-of-reach thing I could ever dream of happening. Well, it happened.
So just like Oprah says, you dream one dream, and once you reach that dream you dream a bigger dream!
So my next dream is: I want to have a cocktail with Sandra Lee!
You'd think this wouldn't be that hard to accomplish. We know she likes the drink, so it should require little effort on my part. She lives (at least some of the year) in New York, and I'm there often enough to make it happen.
The ongoing problem is that Sandra Lee hasn't been showing up at these food festivals. She wasn't scheduled to present at the NYC Wine and Food Festival this past Oct. and somehow didn't end up showing at the other festival in South Beach, despite being originally scheduled.
I want this to be an organic thing--don't wanna pull some strings and have it all set up by others. Ideally, I'd just walk into a bar and see Sandra Lee there and we'd chat, perhaps while discussing the best paper to use for placecards and how she has time to tie all those ribbons around the napkins.
Not that crazy, right? I'll make it my 2009 goal.
