Lunchtime with Ina

I’ve been working from my home office for the past couple of years.  My wife and I almost always eat lunch together.  We talk for a while and sometimes put on Food Network.  Usually, the Barefoot Contessa Ina Garten is on.  We laugh at the Ina-isms like “Be sure to use *really good* vanilla” and at her husband Jeffrey always hanging around the kitchen ready to sample her dishes.  We speculate that she’s always at home because she’s under house-arrest for some trumped up drug trafficking charges.

Ina was even mentioned on NBC’s “30 Rock” this season.  Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) is dating a pilot who she only sees every couple of weeks.  She says “I’m like that woman on Food Network whose husband only comes home on the weekends and she spends the rest of her time eating and drinking with her gay friends…”

Foodnetworkhumor.com has a funny spoof on Ina, link is here.  I actually laughed out loud.  Enjoy…
