The Chew May 2, 2013
We all know the routine – meat, potatoes, vegetables and BAM, dinner is served with glum faces and awaited with all the enthusiasm of an office supply convention. Good news is, The Chew is aiming to end this monotony with a couple of ways to spice up your go-to dinners. Brooke Shields of Army Wives and Calvin Klein fame is also swinging by on May 2.
The Chew: Dress Up Your Dinner
What do you think the crew will be making? My first utterly uneducated guess would be meatloaf sprinkled with a shaved Skittle topping. Perfect for mothers looking to really deliver a meal that no one can be mad about. The parents get their nutritious meat loaf and you won’t even have to worry about dessert for the kids – it’s on the meatloaf. Genius.
Given the likely accuracy of my first guess, I would have to say the next shake up will come to mashed potatoes. What I’m seeing right now is a massive bowl of the whipped spuds with some vanilla ice cream mixed in. Once again, it’s all about going for dessert and dinner at the same time. How can you go wrong with that?
If you have any serious assumptions about what traditional dishes they may be mixing up, let us know in the comments below.
The Chew: Brooke Shields
Brooke Shields will also be coming by for reasons unbeknownst to me. Although, I did hear from somewhere that she will be in the kitchen with Mario cooking up some braised beef short ribs with snow peas and oyster mushroom salad. You know what comes between me and something that sounds that delicious? Nothing.
