    She makes this butch heart swoon as though I may reuriqe a fainting couch. I don’t know how to adequately describe the feelings this woman brings forth in me. I could quote Megan Fox and say I would kill an ox with my bare hands for her, but I don’t think that would impress my Nigella. I would rebuild the Taj Mahal in every kind of chocolate one bar at a time for her. With my hands tied behind my back. Blindfolded. Now I must find the Top Chef episode on YouTube of she and Padma in bed together. Happy Friday to all!

    I too will say that I was taken aback by this commercial… “sex sells” and wow, what a way to prove that threoy. I actually wanted to have a burger when I was done watching that commercial, or maybe a cold shower, or both! That commercial made it difficult for me to think clearly! I think that Padma might even give vegetarians a pause with this commercial!
