The vegan collards yesterday were amazing. My mother would never eat collards without a ham hock and some vinegar, but as she tasted her greens yesterday, she was flabbergasted. "They're perfectly seasoned!" Though she did say the music was too loud ;)
Ask the folks down in Milledgeville what pricks Sweetwater can be about copyrights.
My big question: how much of this bird is coming to the table?
Hate on Paula all you want, but she's not exactly inventing a cuisine. Most of her recipes (including the Zensenji-detested Velveeta Fudge) are from the 50s-70s when Southern housewives fell in love with "better living through chemistry". Frozen foods suit her style.
Advocate: The assumtion is that women are overweight because they are lazy is ignorant. I agree that some of the "big is beautiful" camp disregard the long-term health risks of excess weight, but it's not just an issue of being too "lazy" to go to the gym. The cost of a gym membership, healthy foods, and the time commitment involved (If say you're working two minimum wage jobs and trying to raise a child) are significan contributors obesity in many Americans.
And I think if Ms Martinez can afford a gym membership, she should get her ass down there. Not because she's not beautiful and sexy at any size, but because she should share that beauty with the world for another 50 or 60 years instead of living a life crippled by diabetes, high blood pressure, and early joint failure.
