It adds great flavor!

Some of my friends named Amanda question why Bev and I devote so much time to watching Sandra Lee's "put blindly selected ingredients in a pile and call it a recipe" cooking shows. I've tried to explain all about the baby food muffins, the Hannukah hams, the fever dream that is the "Sunset Clambake" episode, the manic fugue state our host enters whenever she detects one part per million of alcohol in the surrounding air... And still the entertainment value seems to elude them.

Well, this oughta convince the doubters. For her daily Cocktail Time, Sandra made a concoction of lemonade, heavy cream, and vodka, and then took a generous gulp in anticipation of something delicious. Her face tells a different story, as you can see in this frame-by-frame video Bev and I assembled.

(This is the second take of the video. Bev's laughter shook the camera so hard during the first one that the result reached Cloverfield levels of nauseousness.)

Yep, the same address in Brewer. Neat! Last I heard, you weren't doing a "best of" this past year! I'll have to reciprocate if you want one! :)

Your writing absolutely cracks me up, Chris! I like the video too. Her face is priceless. She clearly hates it. - Elizabeth

She actually did issue a warning that you have to use heavy cream instead of milk because "the lemonade will make the milk curl" [sic]. So I'm guessing that was one of those things the producers told her to say and she did her best to learn it phonetically without really understanding the meaning of what she was spouting.

I'm glad you've come around. :)

I randomly saw this on youtube a couple days ago, then just found this blog while searching about serial killers. A

I appreciate the note! May I ask how a search for serial killers brought up my blog? Has Sarah Palin gone on a killing spree that I didn't hear about? (Not that it would surprise me to hear she'd snapped, mind you, since she seems generally as tightly wound as a Slinky in a centrifuge, but you'd think I would've known...)
