Words of wisdom from Paula Deen

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.

You know Paula is someone you love while hating at the same time.
You can't help but find her funny and cute and wonderful.
But at the same time there is this tiny part of you (errr me) who thinks MY GOD SHE IS ANNOYING.

But those sayings are right on aren't they.

CaraBee said...

I love Paula! I have one of her cookbooks (Thanks to the uber-awesome Lula) and I watch her show all. the. time. I also kind of have a crush on her sons. Both of them. Something about men with those accents AND they can cook. Yummy.
