In The Kitchen With Honey Boo Boo

A bit of American "culture" (if you can call it that) came to our home last weekend. Christopher asked if he could have some friends over to make "sketti" for lunch. Apparently, "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" has somewhat of a cult following among Christopher and his friends and the kids wanted to make a Honey Boo Boo favorite, Sketti, for lunch that day. I did some searching on-line and, believe it or not, found this recipe as well as the following article on Fox News.

"No doubt money is tight, and the Thompson-Shannon clan sure know how to stretch a dollar. Extreme couponing Mama June gets food on the table for a miraculous $80 week.

Honey Boo Boo's eating habits are a sight to behold. We've learned that she has a fondness ribs, chicken, "fat cakes' (packaged snack cakes) -- and that fan favorite: roadkill. And while the nutritional value of these dishes raises more than a few eye brows, they're none-the-less, memorable.  


In the Sept. 12 episode, Mama June and Honey Boo Boo whip up some “sketti,” otherwise known as spaghetti, topped with a sweet sauce of one part ketchup and one part margarine. (Let’s face it, we've all added a little ketchup to our dishes at one time or another.)  The sauce is clearly a family tradition, handed down to Mama June, who proudly proclaims: "I was raised on the ketchup."  

I supervised the preparation and watched the kids as they took their first bites. It didn't look so bad in the serving bowl.

A toast.
Before the first bite.
 Yum. Said no one ever. Except for Honey Boo Boo and her family. 
Let's just say there were no requests for seconds.

I had some time on my hands Wednesday afternoon and put together this arrangement with flowers and greenery from our yard.

 Have a great Friday!
