Dos ... (equis)

Well, day two of taping was fun! I ran into a bin of Dos Equis bottles in the FN kitchens, very out of place, but just as I was wrapping up for the day I saw it and thought it was a cute thing to see at the end of day two, dos down, I think 8 more to go? Anyway, day two was Friday, but I'm just now getting to post because I had a lazy weekend. Friday morning I caught what I thought was the beginnings of a cold. The whole day while taping I was fighting it with meds and tissue paper and funny thing is I didn't feel sick, just really wack congestion and the usual. I got home Friday and commited to knocking out early to let my body rest. The next morning I went to the local pharmacy and the pharm dude says he thinks it sounds more like allergies ... I got some allergy meds and I am good as new!!!! Never ever had an allergy problem before and now, my eyes are watery, nose a mess, you know? So, as promised ... a pic of something I can show from taping ... the "green room"

This is my sanctuary while taping. I get in early before everyone and just kinda chill. I eat my breakfast, oatmeal every day while taping, then check my email. Then, I sit at the table and go over the days' notes. What show I'll be taping and which recipes go in that show. See, nothing too big. I also think about talking points and what I'd like to say about the ingredients and the recipes. Usually right about then it's been an hour and I go into hair and make up ... then on with the day. Here's a pic of today's snack while my dude and I played Warriors on PS2 ...

And remember I told ya about Upstairs on the Square in Baahhston? Well, we are still talking about how good the meal was and the atmosphere to match. Here's another pic, I almost lost words when I saw the 2 finger dishes of salt and pepper ... I was in heaven ... that's my bellini on the left ;-)

Hi Sunny,

I'm really enjoying your show and looking forward to your new season in July. I also can hardly wait to try some of your recipes this week:)

I caught your show for the first time tonight! The "jagersnitzel" episode. I was stationed in Nurnburg, Germany while in the Army many years ago and that was one of my favorite things to eat over there :) The idea of eating them with cheesy grits rocks! I enjoyed the show and will continue to watch, much success!

Sunny Anderson said...

blackaspasia ... thanks so much!! i can't wait to see the new season too lol, i really like the new kitchen and the menus we put together for the next 13!

hopluv ... wie geht's? i hope good! so glad you caught the german show!!! don't ya miss the food? and yeah, i love spaetzle, but it only takes 5 mins for grits!! maybe spaetzle on another show :-) thanks for the support and for the military service!!!

Hey Sunny!

I do miss the food :) I have been living in Dallas, TX for about 18 years and we just don't have a great German food offering here. I often crave it, although I'm a pretty decent cook I haven't ever prepared any German food. That's about to change!

Sunny Anderson said...

hopluv ... don't make me crack out an internet search on ya and give you some german spots to take in dallas style teeheehee ... with ft. worth right there i bet there's a german military spouse or two that decided to make some money off family recipes :-) ... gotta be some authentic german food there ... give the jaegerschnitzel a try ... more traditional is with breaded veal ... same prep just dredge in bread crumbs and not the flour ... but both methods are equally yummy!

Hey Sunny!

It's been a couple weeks since I've had the time to drop by but since I refuse to speed read your blog, I figure "OK - time to catch up with my fave chef".

Thanks for the pic of the green room. Sounds like things are moving fast and furious for you over at the FN (which is GREAT!).

Oh - and I gotta send you a restaurant recommendation - will send it through the MySpace - when I had dinner there while traveling, I was like "This is definitely a spot Ms. Anderson might appreciate" if you are ever in Philly. I promise to read more on the regular :) (I have a bit of a backlog)
