"Everybody Says I have a Force Field Around Me" -- Sandra Lee

Sandra Lee is magical!



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.

Law of attraction...it works. Get yourself a vision board started! That's how Oprah does it too. :-)

I'd like to sneak up to her at the bar, give her a teasing kiss on the back of the neck, and then hand her a seasoning packet with my name on it.

It's not a force field, it is a wall of gin stench.

I'd like to get her tanked and then dare her to show me that fabulous rack.

Dare, beg...same difference.

Jacob, hon, trust me - you do not want to meet Sandra Lee. Please set your sights a little higher. You deserve better!

So is she shilling for Johnsonville now? And what happened to the Emmy nominated hair? Looks like she just rolled out of bed.

I think Jake would get along fine with Sandra. I don't think he is setting low standards. Just seeing how the other half cooks, that's all.

It does look like she is shilling for Johnsonville doesn't it. The mushroom recipe looked horrid and probably tastes like shit anyway. Save your money .Buy real italian sausgae from you local butcher.

Let her make money! She could be washed up at any time. Even though it is changing (bailouts) go girl -we are still a free enterprise system.

I also fantasize about Aunt Sandy.

Culinary ingredients include butter, olive oil, Cool Whip (no time to get out the KitchenAid and make it fresh), and pre-mixed Cuervo margaritas.

Problem is, she starts to talk and it becomes a nightmare...

Jacob, Aunt Sandy seems like she would be fun to hang with, specially after a few drinks. I would want to know how she easily puts together her tablescapes, it seems like a hell of a lot of work to me. Everything seems so easy, I would want to know the real truth.

Yeah. Aunt Sandy slumped over the bar beggin' for more vanilla vodka and Coke. That's my idea of a real fab time.

Can't you get these gross people from posting this sick stuff on your blog?
