about me

(picture taken from JO’s website)

I just have to tell the world that I am forever indebted to Jamie Oliver.  I think I shall write him a fan letter.  You know why?  My man, The Pastor, has cooked dinner three times in the last 7 days.  Thanks to Jamie Oliver and his free five minute podcasts.  The Pastor is all about making stirfry now.  YUMMY stirfry.  I think my favorite that he’s made so far is his Chicken Chow Mein.  So good.

And I also must add that I LOVE Jamie’s accent.  I love how he says “wiff” instead of “with” (and I always wonder how people with this lovely accent spell the word “with”??  These are the questions that make the world go ’round you know.)  And I love how he always says, “I would be well chuffed wiff that. Well chuffed.”

Jamie Oliver is different than a lot of guy cooks on t.v. and the internet… he’s a total guy.  I think this is why my husband can take cooking lessons from him and not feel puny about it.  My husband now wants to cook dinner two or three times a week.

I owe Jamie.  I should buy him a Christmas gift or something to show my gratitude.  But I don’t know what I’d get him. I think he’s just kinda sorta rich.

  1. Hey Dot, Jamie Oliver’s cooking podcasts can be downloaded from iTunes. I’m not sure how many are up there… but then you can find several on his website too. I don’t know what channels he is on (we are cableless.)

  2. Hi Nan. Thanks for your comment on my blog! It’s always fun to meet new people in blogworld. I took a quick look at your “about me” page, and I think if you lived in the States, and perhaps in my state, then we would be able to hang out and watch movies together. I mean, who can you find in 2008 who loves The Sound of Music? And by the way, I love your farmer’s market photos. Gorgeous!

  3. Thanks for coming by Meili! Yay! :^D I’d love to watch movies with you. There has to be a good handful of us “out there” who still enjoy a good musical. We were raised on them. (Oklahoma, Fiddler on the Roof, Singin’ in the Rain…) I’m a sucker for old movies and musicals. Hope you have that baby soon! :^D

  4. Great reading that other people love Jamie! In the UK he’s just done a series and released a book teaching people to cook in 24 hours. It’s a great, easy-recipe filled book that gives you lots of tools and ideas that you can tweak and make your own. Have a look on amazon.co.uk for “pass it on”. My husband loves it.
