Martha & the Amish

LuvMaerz's picture

One of my favorite shows to watch is "The Martha Stewart Show".  Say what you will about Martha, but there is some very good segments, guests, crafts, recipes, etc on there!  Anyway, since it comes on at 3:15 a.m. here, I have the DVR set to record.  They have mostly been repeats lately, but I have been catching up on two-weeks worth of new "summer session" shows.

It was interesting to see Martha being taught to make Amish Friendship Bread the other day.  First off, she pronounced it "AIM-ish", and got very flustered because she didn't quite get the concept of the whole 10-day concept of adding, smooshing, dividing, baking, etc.  I don't think I have seen her like that before, as she is usually quite poised and knows what she is doing.

The funniest part, though, was when she said "If there are any AIM-ish people out there watching the show, please contact us to tell us if we are doing this right."  LOL  Kevin really needs to go on the show and give her a lesson or two about the Amish.

Unfortunately, there are a number of folks who will correct others and tell them to pronounce it AIM ish

That is funny....Rachel is a huge Martha fan, I'll have to tell her about the new episodes...drives me NUTS when someone says AIM-ish, she should know better!  By the way, who was teaching her how to make the friendship bread?

"Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift... that's why they call it the present."

One of her stylists, who was probably in her late 20s or so, had brought it in from a starter her mother gave her.  She was talking Martha through it, but it wasn't very rehearsed Wink
