Paula Deen

May 11th, 2013 by carrie

In January I was lucky enough to be asked to come on Paula Deen’s show with my mother. We flew down to Savannah and had the best time. Mom and I shared a hotel room with princess beds, we walked around looking at all the beautiful Savannah streets and houses, and had dinner at a great restaurant – The Olde Pink House. Mom and I were on post-Christmas diets – I don’t recommend Savannah on a diet.

Paula was so kind and charming. She is everything you expect and more. She patted my bottom and told me that rough egg shells are the product of chicken eating too many oyster shells – just the type of stuff I expect from good southern women.

Our episode (Good Morning, Savannah) – I haven’t seen it yet – and we forgot to tell all you Big City Grits followers about it, so it’s possible none of us ever get to see it! But if any of you do – let me know! There is a re-run on Monday (5/13) at 5 pm EST.

We made my mother’s white gravy recipe which I could eat happily by the spoonful, but I don’t because I do have a few limits. We also made something called Geriatric Salad which I cannot explain, but I strongly suggest you find the episode and watch it so you can see my mother’s reaction.

Here are some picture from our time in Savannah…
