In the clip, Ree Drummond explains to Paige she is going to bring the dish to a boil but pauses with the realization they forgot to add the frozen peas. But this is just the first cooking mishap that occurs during the course of this extremely brief video. Not much later, Drummond exclaims, “Oh shoot! We forgot the garlic and the ginger.” Paige jokes, “So we are not on top of things.” To which her mom humorously replies, “Follow me for more cooking tips.”
If we had a dime for every time we’ve forgotten to add an ingredient as we cook, we might have as much money as The Pioneer Woman. One fan on Instagram could certainly relate, writing, “This is me every day. Literally. Thanks for keeping it real & making the rest of us feel normal.” And that normality continues to comedic effect.
When Paige adds the ginger, she plops it into the cooking curry mix only to have it splatter all over her mom. You can’t help but laugh as momma Drummond shrieks and gently scolds her daughter. “Hilarious and real!” exclaimed an Instagram user. While Alex pronounced Paige “the worst assistant,” at least one fan laughingly called the ginger mishap “classic.”
The episode was clearly a hit with many viewers, whose responses included “Love this. So genuine” and “Please keep filming episodes like this!!! The mistakes and no editing makes it more entertaining.” Agreed.
