Farewell to Oprah
Did anyone else watch the Oprah finale tonight? I had some girlfriends over to watch the final three episodes (DVR marathon) and inspired by our New Orleans trip I made gumbo, jalapeno cheddar cornbread and green goddess salad for dinner.
I called my mom after the show to tell her about my dinner that her southern cooking roots are strong in me (she was born in Dallas and raised in Memphis - a true southern lady!).
We also talked about how sad it is Oprah is over. One of the reasons we liked her show so much that she was such a positive influence on people and her show have the emphasis on bettering people lives and bringing them up. There is so much negativity on TV today and people making fun of other people and Oprah always had her show have a core value of doing good things and helping others. I admire that so much!
And with that, farewell to my favorite hour of television!
