At least I’m not Ragu

by statia on December 1, 2006

Two words that need to be abolished from the English language, never to be used again:

Preggers and Preggo.

Seriously, they just don’t sound cute. Prego is a damned spaghetti sauce and really just makes me feel fatter than I need to. Preggers? Well, do I go into the whole trailer park yokel stereotype?

Also, in other news, you really care about the fantastic Butternut Squash Lasagna I made for dinner last night. And I only share it with you because it was so fucking good that I can eat the whole pan. I’ve become sadly addicted to the Food Network. So much so that I’ve moved Giada De Laurentiis to #2 (it would take something really serious to knock my beloved Mariska Hargitay out of 1st place) on my “chicks I’d do list”, because not only is she hot, but man can that girl cook! Mmmmmm food.

And speaking of food, all holiday cookies can be mailed directly to me, because surprisingly, I passed the screening for gestational diabetes. On the first try no less. Which is more than I can say for my learner’s permit.

Psst-you can buy a special comb to use to check for preggers. I’m just saying.

Mollywogger December 1, 2006 at 1:20 pm

HATE preggers.

Love Giada, but DAMN that girl has a big head.

Solonor December 1, 2006 at 1:22 pm

You probably cheated on the test, preggo.

Do you notice on Giada’s show that whenever they start showing food they crank up the cheezy music? It’s food porn!

Lut C. December 1, 2006 at 2:28 pm

Yes! Great news about the gestational diabetes test. Dish out the ice-cream!

Kathy December 1, 2006 at 2:39 pm

mmmmm frosted sugar coookieeees

geeky December 1, 2006 at 3:07 pm

omg, we should hang out and watch food network ALL DAY. does the meester find Giada hot? it’s the only way i can get Mr. Geeky to watch food network.

and yeah, Molly is right, she had a big head.

Jennifer December 1, 2006 at 3:22 pm

Oh my good god, I *hate* those two words! UGH!! Skin crawling!! (They’re worse than “yummy” and “moist”!)

jen December 1, 2006 at 3:50 pm

Hahahaa.. I HATE preggers. And ‘moist’…that word sends me running. Ugh.

I was watching Giada the other day, she made all these wicked pasta dishes..mmmm.

I thought she had a rather..large smile. Lots o teeth. I like her though…

I have to admit that I love Paula Deen too. How that woman is not 589479 pounds is beyond me.

trish December 1, 2006 at 4:23 pm

Giada does have a lot of teeth, but I love her recipes.

Donna December 1, 2006 at 6:18 pm

ARG – Paula Deen drives me crazy. I think it’s her accent I can’t stand. That lasagna sounds heavenly, you know I loves me some butternut squash. And all cutesy words for pregnant, vagina and breasts should be outlawed.

Lori December 2, 2006 at 5:26 am

Giada got me through bedrest. Of course then it was frustrating to not be able to spend time in the kitchen whipping up her fab dishes.
And good for you for passing the GD test – I celebrated by eating 15 cupcakes over the course of 3 days. And then tried to figure out what else I could frost with the remaining frosting. I decided frosted tomatoes wouldn’t taste good so I just ate the leftover frosting off my fingers. Yum. Enjoy the holiday cookies.

Cheeky Prof December 2, 2006 at 6:43 am

That recipe looks soooo good. And I totally agree with you about the obnoxious words. Ugh.

Mary Scarlet December 2, 2006 at 10:30 am

OK good now I know what I’m having for dinner. I saw that show and couldn’t decide if it was a very good idea or a very bad. And ditto to what Mollywogger said … she’s hot and it’s hilarious how they make her wear the cleavagey shirts, but when you get a long shot of her, the giant head and trex weeny upper arms just crack me up. I know it’s a bit cruel but she’s gorgeous and rolling in it so it’s ok, right? (preggo=gag me)

Mary Scarlet December 2, 2006 at 10:31 am

(btw, that’s “t-rex”, as in tyrannosaurus, not “trex” sorry)

Lenni December 2, 2006 at 2:33 pm

I really like Giada, but I think she has a huge mouth – I think she could swallow her whole enormous head with her mouth.

Camille December 2, 2006 at 3:59 pm

I am with you with the “preggers” and “prego” crap. I have a great recipe that includes butternut squash, corn and beans (and other stuff, like tomatoes, etc.) with a tamale-like topping that is awesome if you want it.

Deltus December 3, 2006 at 7:05 am

Just going to check out this Giada person, see what all the fuss is… wow! Noice!! Of course, she’s no Nigella Lawson. But she’s now on MY “chicks I’d do” list too. Somehow, though, that isn’t as special.

Say, care to have another hot chick showdown (akin to the Mariska Hargitay vs. Jill Hennessy that you won) of Giada vs. Nigella?

SSFB December 4, 2006 at 4:58 am

mmm, I like Prego way better than Ragu, but that’s just the sauce. Not so crazy about the term either way and that goes for Preggers too.

Chris December 4, 2006 at 5:12 am

The word “preggers” drives me up the fucking wall. Not sure why but it just sounds stupid.

jesser December 4, 2006 at 6:16 am

YES YES! Thank you. I will be showing this post to my hubby who thinks it’s cute to refer to me as “preggers” as in “let’s get you home, preggers.” Of course I will stop bitching there because he’s awesome and has done all the housework for 7 months now. And thanks for the recipe … sounds like something that might have some hidden vegetables.

robyn December 4, 2006 at 11:38 am

Todd is in love with Giada, but personally her head is so disproportionally large compared to the rest of her skinny l’il body, all I can think of when I see her is “bobble head”. She can still cook for me any time though.

missy December 4, 2006 at 4:20 pm

wow. I love Giada. I love Giada so much, I have Isi tivoing her for me, and he’ll watch her too. He is also of the big head team, while I just think she’s overly skinny. But Ina Garten? (barefoot contessa?) She makes my skin crawl.
