I've been reading through the Paula Deen cookbooks Angie sent me, and to be honest I love Paula. Even in written word she comes across as a real person that I would love to meet & hang out with.
Quotes from Paula Deen's Kitchen Wisdom:
"Bein' rich is having leftovers. Good leftovers make yo' tongue fly outta yo' mouth and smack yo' brains out." Leftovers sound painful. Painfully good.
"Nobody better get between a fat girl and her food, 'specially if the girl's me." Amen.
"I never met a Campbell's soup I didn't like." Me neither Paula, me neither.
"Michael said one day that I was the only person he knew who put butter in her cornflakes." I don't know anyone that does this, but it sounds strangely delicious.
"Oh I would be so teed off if I didn't put butter on my biscuit one mornin' and I walk out there and a truck hits me. And there my ass is, lyin' out in that street to die healthy. Oh, nooo, darlin'." Perhaps I should rethink this whole diet thing.
"And if I find mold and spoiled food and opened cans without covers and a funny smell in someone's refrigerator when I'm lookin' for a can of soda-well, I'm going to be too plump busy to go to her barbecue." Ditto.
And finally my personal favorite...
"You know, I am so sick of cuttin' on my television and everyone on it is obsessed with livin' forever. Well, I have a news flash: Ain't none of us gettin' out of her alive."
You don't get much more real than that.
