Ree Drummond was in Dallas again last night to sign her new book, Black Heels to Tractor Wheels, which is her personal account of her “transition from city life to ranch wife.” I can’t wait to dive into the book, but I am more excited that Ree remembered the gift basket I have her in Dec. ’09 when I went to her cookbook signing!
I was relaying to her my story of coming from a small town in Oklahoma, now living in the big city in a high rise condo, yet still staying true to my roots by making things my grandma taught me, even relaying to her my passion for my canning hobby. I mentioned my plum jam that was in the gift basket, and that she probably wouldn’t remember it because she gets so many gifts from her fans, and she said, “No! I ate that jam!” That made my day, week, month! :)
Here’s some pics of Julie and I with Ree, and a shot I snapped on the way out of her cute hubby, Marlboro Man! :)
