Martha


Today I'm making this butternut squash soup (again!) It is so delicious I would like it once a week. Martha knows all. Speaking of that, her daughters new book called Whateverland: Learning to Live Here comes out on Oct. 18th. Can't wait to read about crazy Martha!

Exhibit A:

 "Martha does everything better! You can't win!" Alexis, 46, says of her world-famous mother, 70. "If I didn't do something perfectly, I had to do it again. … I grew up with a glue gun pointed at my head."

- Halloween? "There were no costumes. There was no anything. We turned off all the lights and pretended we weren't home," writes Alexis.


My sister came up with the name "demented Martha" for our own mom. It sometimes applies when she pulls all-nighter cookie bake offs and then finally passes out from exhaustion & doesn't bother to refrigerate the dough. And then proceeds to still give them to everyone as a wonderful Christmas gifts. YUM! Anyways, I'm thinking the real Martha sounds much worse. Go mom.
