Ree Drummond, aka The Pioneer Woman, may be best known for her irrestible home cooking on her ranch, but she isn’t always prepared for last-minute guests. In a recent post on her Instagram account, the mother of four revealed that when her college-aged daughter brought along a ton of guests to her ranch earlier than expected, she had to resort to serving premade fried chicken.
We find this so relatable! Who hasn’t had someone turn up unexpectedly and been forced to make some last-minute adjustments to a party menu? And by the look on all the diners’ faces, they seemed pretty pleased with the store-bought chicken and fixings and the soda in the Solo cups. And hopefully they got that Pioneer Woman lasagna and garlic bread for dinner!
If you didn’t know, Drummond is not afraid to take shortcuts. In fact, she recently told us one of her best baking tips for the holidays is to reach for premade doughs to focus on flavor. “If you want to make cinnamon rolls, you can focus more on the flavorings of the cinnamon rolls themselves and then use the prepared dough,” she said.
