My friend Erin from $5 Dinners is going to be on the Rachael Ray show tomorrow! (Tuesday, April 21st.) As the title of her blog suggests, she's all about preparing economical meals, and she got herself a gig up in the big city to tell all about it on national television.
Erin wrote to the Rachael Ray show several months ago, not long after she started her blog, in response to a segment the show did with Whoopi Goldberg where they were discussing the idea that it is more expensive to eat fresh produce and healthy foods. Au contraire. Erin immediately wrote in disputing the very notion, then promptly forgot all about it.
Until last month when Rachael Ray's people called her! Then came to her house! Then invited her to New York City to be on the show!
My heart goes all a flutter just thinking about it. I have no idea how she got herself through it all without fainting, except that she's way more with it than I am. I say again, Erin, don't forget us little people!
Check your local listings for the show. In the Dayton area it's on at noon. And if you have a life, you know, set your DVR.
I for one plan on doing both: My DVR will be set, and as soon as my youngest child gets on that school bus at ten minutes before 12:00, I'll be in my car heading over to Erin's house to watch it live. Along with about fifty of her other closest friends. *wink*
Oh, and if you haven't checked out 5dollardinners.com, you should. It's a phenomenal blog and really will motivate and give you ideas on how to save on your grocery bill.
