But seriously, she is the cutest thing. Rich & I waited 3 hours in line at Vroman's in Pasadena for a book signing to meet her. She is so wildly popular!
We were asked to put a little post-it on the opening page of her cookbook, saying who the book was to be written to. I decided to put e-wife... she asked who that was and I sheepishly said it's my blog moniker (I mean, how do you say you're a blogger to the PW. You feel like an idiot.) She asked me how long I'd been blogging and what the name of my blog was... of course I know she ran right to her hotel and looked me up. :-) Rich's parting words to her were, "I like what you do with butter." She replied in her sweet voice, "Oh, thank you soooo much. That means a lot to me." I think she really meant it.
While we waited, Rich looked through her new cookbook and decided to try making her Oso Buco with risotto. So, all in all, a successful evening!
