NPR wants to talk to me

I'm being interviewed for NPR tonight. They're coming over and are gonna watch me make a big pot of chicken soup and some bisquits for dinner. Isn't that weird?

They're doing a story about people who have changed their shopping and cooking habits since the recession really took hold. That would be me. I'm so much more careful about what I buy, and we hardly have any packaged foods at all in the house anymore. We've been using up what we can from our pantry, but looking forward I can't see us buying too much in the way of anything packaged besides cereal. Because my son lives on cereal as a snack, and the food pantry we use tends to bring us 4 boxes a month.

Fortunately, my home health aid is here today so the house will appear clean and not so crazily cluttered. We hope! Meanwhile, I'll be straightening up our pantry shelves and the fridge, because I'm sure he's gonna look in there and although I don't think there is anything dead in the fridge, you never know. Ewww.

I'll tell you how it went later.

I totally want to hear this! Hope they're nice to you and it's a good experience. (I keep picturing a bunch of klieg lights and then reminding myself, "duh, it's radio!") Mmmmm, chicken soup and biscuits. Heavens, they'll be tasty.

Great! Good luck! What are the chances it'll be run on-air in the Midwest? what show is it? Sorry I'm so nosy; I'm an NPR junkie.

WOW that's so exciting! I catch Morning Edition and All Things Considered every day on my drive to and from work...any chance it will air on either of those programs?
