Amyrican Adams Pasta Salad

Pasta, Salad, Side, Snack, Vegetarian

It is hard to remember a time when Amy Adams wasn’t a critically acclaimed darling with five Academy Award nominations under her belt. But there was, and that time was ‘98 … a year before her screen debut in Drop Dead Gorgeous.

While Leslie Miller wasn’t an Oscar bait role, Ames’ performance was pitch perfect and I knew from the start that she was destined for greatness. As is often the case when I get that feeling, I immediately hitched my wagon to her and vowed to make her a big big fucking star.

Thankfully Amy never held my advice that Cruel Intentions 2 was a good idea against me, and listened to me when I suggested she co-star with my dear friend Ben in Junebug. You may have heard of it? It is the one that put her on the map, snagged her first Oscar nom … and first Oscar robbery at the hands of Rachel Weisz.

Everybody knows that Michelle Williams and Ames’ should have tied for Supporting Actress that year, but I’ve digressed.

Ames’ is super busy filming Sharp Objects and doing reshoots on Justice League, so I was so touched that she wanted to make the time to catch up and celebrate the movie that launched her career … and her words, our best friendship. Isn’t she a doll?!

Given cook-outs are the best thing about Fourth of July for non-Americans, I decided to continue you rolling with the rapidly revealing theme and whip up another (not so healthy) salad, this time in the form of my Amyrican Adams Pasta Salad.

 

 

Like Kirstie before her, I prefer my salads to be as un-salad-like as possible. Don’t be fooled by the capsicum, tomato and carrot, this pasta salad isn’t very healthy … but damn is it delicious!

Enjoy!

Fame Hungry’s American Teen Princess Pageant

Fame Hungry's American Teen Princess Pageant, Guess Who's Coming to Dinner

You all know that US-A is a-ok, and, well, while Amer-i-can, she tragically couldn’t – Hiz is the OG Shea Couleé and that is just way too heartbreaking for you, me and Carole Radziwill.

Given that reality is way too depressing and Trinity Taylor’s likeability has softened me to the pageant world, I thought it best to honour Independence Day by celebrating the greatest film of all time, Drop Dead Gorgeous.

So grab your best lutefisk, prep your giant parade swan, melt a beer can to your hand and get ready to cheer on the huskies, are all the things that are great about America – Mount Rose, Adam West, my brother Peter, Days of our Lives, Butterick Pattern 7432, medical science replacing the skin from my belly with skin from my butt, Soylent Green, and my daughter … Rebecca. Ann. LEEEMAAAANNNNNN.

And obvi, Sarah Rose Cosmetics. Now where the hell is my waiter?

Wait, that’s me – check back tomorrow as we kick off Fame Hungry’s American Teen Princess Pageant!
