It’s A Cookbook!

You probably don’t know this, but at one time I was a terrific cook.  And I have the books to prove it.  I’ve bought cookbooks wherever I’ve gone — I have them from all over Europe, although following the recipes in another language and using a different measuring system can be a bit of a challenge.

I even have one with recipes from Bill and Hillary Clinton and other political notables.  It’s called the Congressional Cookbook, and it came out in the late 1980s.  It has recipes from governors, congressmen and senators and their wives.   Hillary’s chicken, by the way, is awesome and easy.  She is a damn smart lady.

These days, I don’t cook as much as I used to.  And so my cookbooks are mostly gathering dust instead of flour.

But today I learned that in spite of the fact that I don’t cook so much any more, there will soon be another book I’ll need to add to my collection.

You see, Ann Romney has penned a Cookbook called The Romney Family Table.

In it, I’m sure she’ll tell us all how “To Serve the 47 Percent – a la Twilight Zone.”  Yum.

Because folks like Ann and Mitt wouldn’t want to eat with the 47 percent, now, would they?

{My thanks to The Last Of The Millenniums who first alerted me to this important news.  Well, sort of.  I think I’d sleep better not knowing about Ann’s plans for the future, but still.]

  1. I’ve found that with so many recipe ideas bookmarked on my laptop, my once trusty cookbooks gather more dust. There are a few go-tos that I’ll never Google a replacement for, though.

    I did try a pie recipe from the Democrats’ cookbook once. It was delicious – but the last step told me I had to share it with everyone. My slice got really, really tiny.

  2. That’s one of my fave Twilight Zone episodes. One of our cats is named Cupcake, and whenever she walks in the room, either Mr. Weebles or I will yell, “It’s a Cupcake!” with the same inflection as they do in the episode.

    When I saw the photo of Ann Romney as I scrolled down this post, I felt myself getting queasy. I don’t think that bodes well for her cookbook. Also, I’d assume these are recipes from her personal chef, because you know, she’s better and richer than the rest of us. She doesn’t have to cook.

    • I agree with the queasiness that any picture of Ann Romney produces. But a cookbook? Her? The woman who had to sell stock when she was so poor she and Mitt lived on pasta?

      I couldn’t quite decide whether to go with Twilight Zone or with Soylent Green. Because people like the Romneys just really want to devour everybody else. I thank heaven every day that we aren’t living through the Romney Administration!

    There’s nothing past tense about your cooking skills, girlfriend. As for Ann’s… I’d like to watch her, with hand on Mormon bible, swear that she’s even seen those recipes before.

      I think that would be a great idea — the bible. Although she is so delusional I’m sure there would be some excuse for her bald faced lies.

    • You mean Ann doesn’t cook? I’m shocked! Shocked!
      Just when we thought the Romneys helpful hints would quiet down, she goes and announces a cook book. I would understand it if it were a photo album of the cooks they actually conversed with.

  18. Does this come as any surprise? Didn’t you follow her pinterest page that she made to clearly support an image for Mitt’s election? Unfortunately, she stopped posting after the election. I am so glad she is releasing a cookbook because I was devastated when she stopped pinning so many great and simple American recipes.

  21. I’m too lazy to bake a pie with a lattice top, but if I ever did — especially if I were using it for the cover photo of a cookbook — I’d weave it properly instead of just laying out strips horizontally and then vertically. I’m just sayin’.
