You know the saying, “Kiss the Cook”. Well, The Cooking Mom, got a big kiss this week! And, I had no idea it was coming! I was in Minneapolis getting all ready to do a cooking segment on Twin Cities Live. I was there to make some “Back To School” snack recipes. So, there I was assembling the cutest ever, if I do say so myself, Butterfly Snack Bags, when in walks a guy I recognized right away. You never know who you are going to run into doing these TV shows. Sometimes I just have to pinch myself. This summer I’ve pinched myself a bunch! From Queer Eye For the Straight Guy’s Thom Filicia to a person I’ve always dreamed of meeting, The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drumond. And this week, I got to meet another person on my cool to meet list. Stefan Richter!!
I’m a huge fan of the TV show Top Chef! My daughter, Ireland and I watch all the time. Stefan is one of my favorites! I still can’t believe I got to meet him. I know, he’s got a reputation on the show, but in person he couldn’t be nicer! When I asked if I could get a picture with him, and gosh I feel so weird doing that, he not only said yes, but next thing I know I was getting a kiss on the cheek. I’ll never wash that cheek again. Just kidding! I already have. When I texted Bob, my hubby, the picture with the words, “Are you jealous, LOL?” His text back was “I’m better looking than that guy. And, by the way, who is it?” Too funny!
Well, gotta love a guy who cooks, and cooks really well! Charming too! Single ladies, he’s looking! And, for a down to earth gal too. He even talked about the type of gal he’s looking for on the show.
Sure is fun to meet run into a celebrity every now and again. For now it’s back to the loads of laundry and some dirty dishes too. LOL!
