As Shannon Storms Beador practices self-isolation due to coronavirus (COVID-19), she has plenty of time to cook — and jokingly respond to critics on social media.
The Real Housewives of Orange County mom showed her recent homemade dinner in a March 18 Instagram photo of two plated meals."Dinner for two... Cooking in quarantine," wrote Shannon, who to date is seemingly in good health as it pertains to the coronavirus. "Asian chicken with soba noodles, snap peas, and homemade peanut sauce."
She concluded: "May not be the prettiest but healthy and delicious," before adding the hashtags "non-stop cooking," "lots of time on my hands," and "blessed."
While many of her followers were impressed with the meal, a few were quick to point out the less-than-appetizing appearance of the sauce. "It looks like vomit on the chicken," one wrote, to which Shannon responded: "I know. But tastes SO good!"
When another commenter inquired about the healthiness of soba noodles, Shannon explained: "I love soba noodles because there is actually some protein in the buckwheat noodle!"
Yet another follower seemed unfazed by her meal choice, but couldn't look past where the meal might have been served, writing, "It looks delish. But it also looks like your plates are on the floor." Shannon found the humor in the assumption, clarifying: "Ha! My kitchen island..."
As the pandemic continues, Shannon has recently incorporated her family's health into her home decor. "I realized that I had these cool shelves in my home, so I decided to create a coronavirus immunity wall," she said in a video recorded for Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. "And Archie has been patiently sitting here with me as I went through all my supplements and I picked out the things that I thought would help keep my family and I strong."
Although she revealed she had a recent panic when she was unable to track down any toilet paper, Shannon is trying to remain optimistic.
"I'm staying at home and I'm spending time with my family. And oh yeah! We're whipping board games out. That never happens in my house with teenage daughters," she said in the video. "We're watching movies together! And we're cooking together. The kids are helping with the dishes?! I mean, there are some positive things that are going on here, and for me, that's important to find the one positive out of all this scary negative."
