Paula Deen: Michelle Obama likes fried food too (and ate more than anyone else on her show)
http://washingtonexaminer.com/blogs/yeas-nays/2011/10/paula-dean-michelle-obama-likes-fried-food-too ^ | 10/10/11 | Schwab & Adams

Posted on 10/11/2011 7:02:38 AM PDT by RummyChick

When Paula Deen met Michelle Obama, it wasn't exactly the queen of butter versus the first lady of garden greens. Deen, known for her delicious not-so-good-for-you recipes like Gooey Butter Cake, said the two women had more in common than you might expect.

"Well, I did a show with Michelle and I just loved being with her," Deen told Yeas & Nays. "She probably ate more than any other guest I've ever had on the show —she kept eating even during commercials." Deen taught Obama how to fry shrimp during a TV segment in September before the 2008 presidential election. "You know what their favorite foods are — it's hot wings, you know, those kinds of foods that are not necessarily top-of-the-list healthy foods, so she's no different than the rest of us," Deen said. "We love those kinds of foods, we just know that we can't eat them everyday."

The culinary superstar also said she supported the first lady's initiative to get more Americans gardening. "So I love that," she said. "I was really happy to see her encouraging children, you know, to plant their little gardens."

This week, Deen is embarking on a book tour by bus, which will bring her to Washington next month as one of the headliners for the Metropolitan Cooking and Entertaining Show at the Washington Convention Center. (Chefs Jacques Pepin, Giada De Laurentiis and Guy Fiere are also coming). There, she'll be doing some cooking, but also talking about her new book "Paula Deen's Southern Cooking Bible," her biggest cookbook yet. "I do more talking than I do cooking," she explained. "I'm just reconnecting with my friends out there and just sharing some laughs with them."

The Metropolitan Cooking and Entertaining Show will be held Nov. 5 to 6, with tickets costing $24.50 in advance online and $27 at the door.

At some point, I imagine she'll just stay in bed eating and have the secret service empty her bed pans.

When they get tossed out of the White House, they'll have to take out a wall and remove her on a gurney with a crane.

LOL. The TX message board has been about food or football the past few days. Those postings exceeded the “Finally getting rain in Texas” and now we are on chicken fried foods. That is after the best BBQ posts. I bet moochelle would love Texas food.

Forget Paula Deen, she had Michelle on during the election but not the Republican candidate's wife. Not that I think Cindy McCain cooks, but then I don't think Michelle does either.

I like tofu. My favorite way is deep fried with shoyu. Although stir-fried is also tasty.

Paula doesn’t own her show. Even so, she had Jimmy Carter on and was drooling over him like he was the last drumstick on the plate.
She’s in a profession wherein the important things are organics, sustainability, locally produced and tolerance of homosexuality; what do you expect?
Do you think it a coincidence that one of five Iron Chefs is lesbian? I don’t think the general population fits that demo yet.

She’s a lib.

She raved about Jimmy Carter in one of her cookbooks.

I can’t stand watching her but I do have a couple of her cookbooks and the food is really good if you don’t have a heart condition :-)

You're so right. RAT bastards 0dumbo & phatass mabelle michelle... I hate em more every day. Both of them are RAT bastard commie pigs. I hope when these two usurpers are thrown out of the WH, that the new president will appoint a special prosecutor to investigate 0dumb0 and finally reveal to the nation exactly who this RAT bastard is. And prosecute the commie pig 0dumb0 if there is deliberate obstruction of justice & fraudulent deceit.

Re; post 26 photo- I NEVER ceased to be amazed by this photo!
Can you belive any president and/or first lady of the United States would dare be photographed with these expressions on their faces?

What an embarrassment these two are!
They have made the U.S. a laughing stock of the entire world.

“Burros discovers and celebrates that Michelle does eat vegetables. But that’s like saying a murderer sometimes commits burglaries. The problem is with Michelle’s core diet, much of which seems to be fried, sitting on a bone, or infested with sucrose.”

I saw that too. Hard to figure how they had enough strength to push their fat @sses away from the feeding trough.
Then again, they were probably eating on their hands and knees.
I also noticed the sign in the foreground, "Pay Us Back." WTF? Made my feckin' blood boil.
