See kids, this is why we eat our veggies

I get the Rachel Ray magazine. Yes. I do.

And the issue for March came in the mail yesterday. It had such YUM-O sounding recipes and so I decided I am going to make dinner tonight for my parents. Braeden has decided he is going to help me. =o)

We needed ingredients. Fresh mozarello. EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil). Capacolla. Pasta. Vodka Sauce. Bread crumbs. Deeee-lish. While walking around I came across a new kind of broccoli bites, which didn’t at all fit with the menu but I bought them anyway.

**cut to making my own commercial**

A woman with brown hair in a ponytail and cute chunky glasses on came up to me and asked me why I picked those broccoli bites. I told her that my son and I are cooking together tonight and I thought they would be fun. In addition, I love broccoli bites. She asked if she could put a recorder on and ask me some questions. I said okay…

Apparently I impressed her, because the next thing I knew another woman was there and Braeden and I were going to get paid $150 to film ourselves making the bites and then eating them. They gave me $25 today and after I send back the digital video camera they will send the other $125. The only other thing I need to do is fill out the question sheet that came with the camera which basically asks what my eating habits are and if I enjoy cooking, yada yada.


Never a normal day in the life of Christy. But who knows, maybe this could be Brae’s big break. I don’t think he cared too much though, because they gave him a sheet of stickers and then he was all smiles. Haha.

Plug for the brand…Green Giant.

    Watch out. Next thing you know some weird broccoli fetishists will be drooling over that video on the internet. Er…not that I know anything about broccoli fetishes.

    I think you could make a good cooking show host, as long as you keep it relatively low key. You have to admit Rachel Ray can be very annoying with her Joker-like grin and flailing limbs. Plus she puts a gallon of “EVOO” on everything.
