well, hello, Dolly!


ok, this is some simple math:

Dolly Parton
+
a cookbook
=
Perfection!!


i am so so so buying Dolly's new cookbook: Dolly’s Dixie Fixin’s
how cute is that title? and what's better than an appliqued, jean-short wearing Dolly replete with hose and
open-toe shoes hawking said book?
well, i'll tell you--

the opportunity to win a backyard barbecque with Truvy herself!!!! just by buying the book!!! i'm not a huge "OMG"-user, but OMG, how much would that RULE?? Dolly in my backyard? (ok, i have no backyard at present but would so coopt my parents' yard should i be lucky enough to win this awesome prize).

honestly, the only way this could possibly be better were if Dolly would collaborate on a recipe with the chicken lovin' Kenny Rogers and create the culinary equivalent of "Islands in the Stream," the *best* *song* *ever*, fyi.

T, can we go to Dollywood for our honeymoon? pretty please?

here are the lyrics for those of you too uncool to know them:

Baby, when I met you there was peace unknown,
I set out to get you with a fine tooth comb
I was soft inside, there was something going on
You do something to me that I can't explain,
Hold me closer and I feel no pain.
Every beat of my heart
We got something going on.

Tender love is blind,
It requires a dedication
All this love we feel needs no conversation
We can ride it together, aha
Making love with each other, aha

Islands in the stream
That is what we are
No one in between
How can we be wrong?
Sail away with me
To another world
And we rely on each other, ah ah
From one lover to another, ah ah

I can't live without you if the love was gone
Everything is nothing when you got no one
And you walk in the night,
Slowly losing sight of the real thing.
But that won't happen to us and we got no doubt,
Too deep in love and we got no way out
And the message is clear,
This could be the year for the real thing

No more will you cry,
Baby, I will hurt you never
We start and end as one,
In love forever.

We can ride it together, aha
Making love with each other, aha.
Islands in the stream
That is what we are
No one in between
How can we be wrong?
Sail away with me
To another world
And we rely on each other, ah ah
From one lover to another, ah ah
i apologize for the bifurcated Dolly-- that's how i had to grab the pics from her web site!
