Last night was the book party to celebrate the publication of Jessica Seinfeld's DECEPTIVELY DELICIOUS. The stylish cookbook features a phalanx of recipes for tasty, but healthy, family food loaded with veggies hidden inside so your kiddies won't know that their brownies or mac and cheese are loaded with deception aka veggies. The book will either start a revolution in kitchens across America or make a lot of moms really happy.
The party was at the Core Club and within the fancypants walls were served trays of tuna salad on pita, mozzarella sticks, mini hamburgers, cupcakes, chocolate chip cookies, quesadillas, and more. All of the food contained dreaded items like zucchini, carrots, broccoli, beets, chickpeas and I think you get the idea. And guess what kiddies, you couldn't taste the veggies! The author (Lady Seinfeld) was in violet with what I would like to call a ponytail, but there may be a fancier name. I love a girl at night in a ponytail. Her husband was in a Ralph Lauren suit and I got him going about how uneasy he was about the Mets game. (They wound up losing to my Cardinals.) We also discussed his 30 ROCK appearance next week.
Kelly Ripa was a dream in a purple, Cynthia Vincent dress. She took a healthy brownie on her way out to serve to Pat Sajak during host chat this morning on Regis. (Sajak is filling in for redhead Reeg.) I would wonder if she did serve him the brownie if my mind wasn't so consumed with the fact that she was responsible for my big highlight of the night, my week, my month: meeting Ralph Lauren. Wow. I am a big, big Ralph Lauren fan. A lifer. I go into the Bleecker Street store any weekend I am in town and I love shopping the sales at Polo.com (there's always good stuff on sale). Chances are that if you see me I am wearing Ralph Lauren, especially Black Label, of which I am obsessed. Black Label is, I think, their newest line for men and it is really modern and tailored and sharp and hip in a classic, RL way.
