Watch and Wonder

Thank you for all the kind wishes, everyone. You guys are awesome.

And now for something completely different:

In case you don't know, Sandra Lee has a show called Semi Homemade on the Food Network. She specializes in using store-bought ingredients to make gimmicky dishes. Most episodes of her show feature themes complete with elaborate "tablescapes" and crazy cocktails (she's big on the booze).

It's not that I'm against using shortcuts: I use a lot of canned tomatoes in dishes and I think cake mixes are God's gift to home cooks. And in theory anything that gets people cooking at home instead of going through a drive-thru is a good thing.

It's just that some of her ideas are just plain strange (e.g. the ice cream baked potato).
