I am so far gone in my delusion that I have already mentally developed a pitch for my fabulous TV show. I am going to try out my pitch on this blog to get it out of my system. Just in case, consider it copywritten...
Title: From Scratch
Concept: Helping people new to the kitchen - newlyweds, new grads, new singles, new home, new to the suburbs with crappy take-out - get started stocking their pantry and developing some standards to fill their recipe box.
Scene 1. Meeting the soon-to-be gourmet. Discover what type of food they like and investigate their kitchen to discover what they already have on hand.
Scene 2. The grocery store. Introduce newbie to some staples. For example, if someone really likes Italian food, purchase onions, garlic, peppers, tomato sauce, pasta, olives, cheese, some key seasonings, etc. Not just items for one meal, but items to get them started creating exciting meals every day.
Scene 3. The gadget store. Again, help to stock the kitchen with some key items that they may not have. Keeping with our Italian theme, a col lander, a lasagna pan, a sharp knife.
Scene 4. Back in the kitchen. Put together a meal, with small tangents along the way of other ways to use the same ingredients.
I know, I am nuts and I have too much time on my hands. A girl can dream, right? Especially a girl that loves stability, is risk averse and way too bland to go on TV. Anyone want to play me in my television show?
