Cyber Monday is here, I’m back to work (bleh) and I still haven’t caught up with everything from Thanksgiving! Of course, I brined the turkey breast. Alton Brown would never forgive me if I didn’t! But this year, I smoked it instead of oven roasting. I tried the pumpkin pie from the last new Good Eats episode, my first from scratch pumpkin pie. Details on that to follow this week.
Until then, I don’t think I shared the books AB signed for me while in Cleveland this month. I brought I’m Just Here for the Food and IJHFTF 2.0 because they are the last two books that remained unsigned. If you remember, AB asked me in Lexington, Ky. at the signing for Good Eats 2 if I had anything left for him to sign. Well, not now!
As I’m talking with AB I noticed that he was not inscribing the typical “Cook Smart” in the book. It wasn’t until I took the books back to my car that I had a chance to read it. He wrote: To Lisa, Something about cooking.
Mom took my other book because I was getting one signed for someone else. She told AB that the book was mine and she said she saw him writing and writing in it. So when I looked at it he had written: To Lisa, blah, blah, blah cooking.
I was laughing hysterically in the parking lot at the I-X Center. AB never fails to unleash his wonderful wit
