Barack Obama Visits My Set, Kinda ... Thanks Jimmy :-)

Hi there! Well, how about I'm mad I went to bed early to catch a flight?? It seems I've made my first appearance on late night television, with Barack Obama! Yup! Well, courtesy of some editing and stuff :-). Check it out ...

How neat to me, not that I'm stirring our commander in chief's head into my Stormy Rice, but it's neat to me because I'm thinking is it possible that Jimmy Kimmel knows I have a cooking show?? Pretty cool because I watch his show and remember it's beer-filled beginnings. Even as a chick, I admit to watching The Man Show from time to time back in the day. Anyway, pretty neat brush with the president. You never know who is watching, eh? It probably would've blown my mind if I saw the skit when it happened, so maybe it's best I had an early flight. :-). Wow, thanks Jimmy and the staff at Jimmy Kimmel Live and thanks to you the reader ... I appreciate all the support! Catch me cooking more than people (soylent green teeheehee), weekdays at 4PM, Saturdays at noon and Sunday mornings earrrrrrrly. :-)

Obviously, at least one of Jimmy's writers is a fan of your show. Nothing worng with that, not at all.

You hit Chi-town yet?

Lana said...

LOL! Well Sunny, I think that's pretty funny. "How did he get into the Stormy Rice!" *giggling*

Welcome to late-night T.V! Just waitin' for a parody of you on SNL next, right? *smiles*

Funny too, because I just watched that episode of yours, and I don't get a chance to catch as many ep's of yours as I'd like. Air times kinda conflict with my job schedule.

Anywho ... know I'm (we're) wishin' you all the best,

Hi Sunny ...

This is totally off topic from your post but I'm looking for a recipe I saw on one of your shows recently and can't seem to find it anywhere in the show recipe archive. It was an episode I saw on a Friday afternoon earlier in the month. Anyway, I can't recall what else you made in the episode, but there were these cream cheese balls that you rolled in bread crumbs ... Panko, I believe and then fried them.

I was hoping to make these tomorrow and can't find the recipe. HELP! Please :D

complaint dept., mgr., i know, i need to send them some rice, eh? and chi-town ... mmhmm about to see our friend :-) 2moro for a home cooked meal ...

lana, i know pretty neat huh? if i ever get parodied on snl, i just won't even believe it. they only make fun of people that people know and that would mean they think people know me lol ... i'm happy with my foodie love, anything more is just extra.

sameinanylingo, 1st thanks so much for watching and i am so happy you want to try a recipe ... or part of one, cuz if you ask me .. sometimes i just eat fried goat cheese sans veggies teeheehee ... here's the link and the recipe ... Fried Goat Cheese Salad with Grilled Sweet Corn

1 ear corn, shucked 1 tablespoon olive oil, plus extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
10 ounces goat cheese, softened
1 lemon, zested
1/4 cup freshly chopped parsley leaves
Vegetable oil, for frying
2 eggs 2 cups panko crumbs Salt
10 ounces baby greens 1/2 lemon, juiced

Freshly ground black pepper Preheat grill to medium-high. Brush corn with 1 tablespoon olive oil and grill, turning often, until charred and tender, about 4 minutes. Set aside. In a medium bowl combine goat cheese, zest and parsley. Roll into 16 (1-inch) sized balls and put on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Freeze until firm, about 20 minutes.

In a large heavy-bottomed pot, add enough oil to reach 1/3 of the way up the sides. Heat oil to 360 degrees F. Whisk eggs in a small bowl and place panko crumbs on a plate. Dip cheese balls in the egg wash, then roll in the panko crumbs. In batches, carefully transfer balls into the hot oil and fry until golden, about 1 minute. Transfer to a paper-towel lined plate and season with salt immediately. Slice corn from cob and add to a serving bowl along with the baby greens. Dress with lemon juice, oil and salt and pepper, to taste. Toss to coat and serve, topped with warm cheese balls.

hope you like it and again ... thanks for watching and welcome to the blog!!!

You're welcome! Your show is one of my favorites :)

And thank you SO much Sunny! No wonder I couldn't find it I totally forgot that it was goat cheese that you used and was looking for something made with cream cheese! But now I remember because I remember the grilled corn. I was starting to think I'd imagined it. LOL!

I saw that this week and it was funny. It was so amzing to meet you at Daruius' . You are down to earth and really nice and fun.

Sunny Anderson said...

sameinanylingo, thanks! and don't worry it happens to me plenty when i watch, i remember an element of something but get the essence of it all wrong :-)... fried cream cheese still sounds good! i'd put some nuts and herbs in it., freeze it and fry it. hmmmmmm maybe there's a fried cheesecake idea in there somewhere ... stay tuned!

glamah, i missed it, but got it via email ...i had too much fun at dtdubs! still talkin about alllll of the food! loved it!!!

You've simply got to come up with some version of Obama rice. Something with Chicago sausage, Illinois sweet corn and maybe your kids pay for it?

sameinanylingo said...

Sunny, the fried goat cheese was awesome! I made them this weekend and they were a hit! They were so beautiful I snapped a photo of them ...

Oh, and this was my first time working with Panko and I'm hooked!

I'm also thinking of trying the fried cream cheese. I like your idea of nuts and herbs. I was also thinking about dicing a jalapeno pepper and mixing it in with a little bit of Green Tabasco and then doing it the exact same way as the goat cheese. Sort of like a deconstructed Jalapeno Popper.

Mmmmm ... fried cheesecake! You should definitely work on that one. I'd be all over that! I never met a cheesecake I didn't like Heh :D


Sunny Anderson said...

t2ed, i know right? i had a barack-atini, but it sounded so much like broccolinin, i scratched it lol ....

sameinanylingo, yaaaaaaay! i'm checkin the flickr as soon as i'm done leaving this post!! glad you liked it, totally don't need the greens do ya? just those fried balls are enough for me sometimes, but i shame myself into eating the veggies so i don't feel so bad! ok, i'll keep ya updated on the fried cheesecake!
