The whole experience was super fun. And pretty surreal. Everyone there was very, very nice:
|Me and Kristi Capel from her instagram page. I love that our outfits coordinated. Yay set design!|
|Backstage where I set up my cooking segment and also TRIED NOT TO FREAK OUT.|
And this is the news desk:
The response via facebook so far from family and friends who have watched has been pretty positive. But when after preschool pickup I asked the Dude - my 4 year old middle child - how I did he said this. And I quote:
"You looked weird. I missed you. ..... How do turtles go to the potty?"
THANKS, BUDDY. Then he wanted to know why I didn't cook something he likes. I asked him what I should have made and he said without hesitation "Apple Raspberry Sauce and Peanut Butter Jelly" So there you have it. Forget Sassy Chicken Salad. I should have just shown off my mad pbj skilz.
But! They seemed to be happy with my performance. And I don't think that I looked... weird. Honestly once I got rolling with it it wasn't so much nerve-wrecking as just full on FUN. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
And since someone asked here's a better picture of the shawl I wore in the segment:
