I stopped by CBS studios this morning to do a Chef on a Shoestring segment for The Saturday Early Show, where I was challenged to make a three course meal for 4 people, for under $40.00. Was I up to the challenge? You bet I was!
I’ve actually worked with John and his team before, so I felt very comfortable and safe in his hands. They have a very good feel for my “sazon” in the kitchen, so that everything tastes exactly as if I made it. I didn’t really have to spend much time in there at all, so after hair and makeup, I was bought out to the set, to get my bearings. doesn’t it look gorgeous? Mm-hmm…John and company!

I was joined by anchorman Russ Mitchell, who remembered me from the last time I did the segment. Unfortunately, I (with my penchant for calling everyone by another name!) called him David during the segment, and that pretty much was the running gag for the rest of the spot.
He called me Dina, and ribbed me about not getting names right, and when the other anchors, Ira Joe and Tracy came out, he introduced them as Irwin and Tammy!
Did I meet the cutoff? The grand total came to $39.85!!! *SWISH* All net, baby!
Ira Joe even hung around for another taste of the Cuban black bean soup, and remarked it was nothing short of AMAZING!
