Lunch with 10 Awesome People

Here's my list of 10 Awesome People
  1. President and First Lady Obama
  2.  Kenneth Branagh, writer, actor, director, producer
  3. Pam Grier, actress
  4. Clarissa Pinkola Estes, author of Women Who Run with the Wolves
  5. Gala Darling, blogger, Radical Self Love guru
  6. Andy Serkis, actor, known for his motion capture work
  7. Fran Walsh, co-writer and producer of the Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit movies
  8. Robert Shaye, the founder of New Line Cinema
  9. Mel Brooks, comedian, actor, director
  10. Gloria Steinem, activist, feminist
Now that I've found addresses for them all, I need to figure out how to get to their various locales! And when! After all, it's not a real invitation to lunch if I don't include an actual date.

These awesome people range from LA to New Zealand to New York to London.  Looks like I have some fun traveling ahead. :)

Ah, scheduling. The hardest part of any endeavor.

The Pleasure of Food: More Pork Shoulder

 Never fear, I'm working on my Lunch with 10 Awesome People. I'll have a more formal draft of the letter soon. And now, more yummy stuff!
***


Do you remember the drinking game* from last week? Here's another chance to play.


*In case you forgot:
Whenever Jason says the word “yummy”, take a drink.
Whenever Jason uses salt, take a drink.
Whenever you see the crew in the shot, take a drink.
Whenever Jason says buttery or nutty, take a drink.
Whenever Jason smells something, take two drinks.
Whenever Jason says Smell-o-Vision, take three!

Pleasure of Food: The Drinking Game!

While I am working on the first draft of my new novel and drafting letters to my Lunch with 10 Awesome people, I thought it would be fun to spend some time in the kitchen together.
***

Every show worth its salt (ha! cooking pun!) has a drinking game associated with it. And so does The Pleasure of Food with The Flaming Chef.
Here is the first segment of the Pork Shoulder, episode two.




So here are the basic rules. If you come up with variants, let me know.

First get comfy with your preferred beverage. Of course it doesn’t have to be alcoholic! This is an all-ages show.


  • Whenever Jason says the word “yummy”, take a drink.
  • Whenever Jason uses salt, take a drink.
  • Whenever you see the crew in the shot, take a drink.
  • Whenever Jason says buttery or nutty, take a drink.
  • Whenever Jason smells something, take two drinks.
  • Whenever Jason says Smell-o-Vision, take three!
