The 47th Annual CMA Awards will air live November 6 on ABC. CARRIE UNDERWOOD and BRAD PAISLEY will host the show for the sixth time. Seems like every year, we are asked just WHO will win, so, I thought I’d toss out the earliest of predictions. Please, no wagering…~Rowdy
Every morning this week I have had a subtle reminder or two of the EIPC event that was the 2013 Oklahoma Championship Steak Cook-Off. Between the sunburn wearing off and the pleasing after-aroma of smoke and Kingsford Charcoal briquettes that linger in my hair, I cannot begin to explain how unbelievably impressed I was with the whole thing.
The VOO Crew wants to wish you a very happy and safe 4th of July holiday! We were discussing favorite 4th of July holiday memories off-air this morning, and Rowdy says that his was a fireworks display that had been sanctioned by the Ft. Worth Fire Department that got out of control and scorched half an acre of the Trinity River bottoms!!
This week across America, you couldn’t turn on a television or open a newspaper or turn on the radio without hearing the sad news that Hostess has declared bankruptcy and will be closing down factories across the nation. This news was horrific for the workers that will lose their livelihoods, for the consumers who adore their products, and for me…it was sheer torture. For those who have listened to more than one broadcast of the KVOO morning show in the past 8 ½ years, you will know that I have a deep and undying love for all things fattening and unhealthy. At the top of that lengthy list is the golden spongecake siren that calls my name and widens my backside on a daily basis…The Twinkie!
So Carrie Underwood is coming to town next week for a show, She'll also be eating "Tofurky" for Thanksgiving at her family home in Checotah. Carrie has been a vegetarian for many years, and the VOO CREW wondered what a deep-fried tofu turkey would actually taste like! We had some Tulsa firefighters on hand in case the flames got outta control (after all, Sunny was doing the cooking) and we are happy to admit that Tofurky is indeed...TASTY!!! Probably not so healthy after 10 minutes in boiling peanut oil, but delicious nonetheless. Enjoy your tofeast, Carrie!
