TODAY | October 15, 2012
>> time now for today's "take 3" where the three of us give our take on the three topics that have caught our attention, and our special guest this morning grammy winning superstar, cook book author and host of "trisha's southern kitchen" on food network . good morning. what do you not do?
>> i don't clean.
>> oh, okay, good.
>> thank you for feeding us this morning. we loved the chili.
>> thank you.
>> and i understand you're going to be making miss mickey's peanut butter balls on seen two? that's something garth and the girls make a lot for when they have to take something to school or they have a project or something, and they are just rice krispies , peanut butter , sugar.
>> we love the sound of that. look good. all the right ingredients.
>> right to our take one which is the barbra streisand song. i don't know if you guys have heard it. we can probably play t. barbra streisand is in this song. basically it's nothing but and then an occasional --
>> but it's a hit on youtube.
>> they have been playing it on satellite radio for a year.
>> and barbra streisand .
>> it's making a little bit of a comeback now because barbra streisand is also making a comeback and enjoying her first concert in brooklyn so apparently during intermission one of the producers heard this song over and over again.
>> now there's a website you can create your own song. we have a trisha yearwood version. i think we can roll it. let's see if we've got it here.
>> trisha yearwood .
>> not quite the same ring to it.
>> do you like that?
>> whole thing is song writing is a little overrated. don't need to worry about the words.
>> get two good words and you're golden.
>> i know. we may have an al roker rendition to play.
>> yeah. here we go. al roker
>> al roker .
>> by the way, that website is gobarbra.com so if you want to put your name in there.
>> very interesting.
>> all right.
>> take two.
>> take two, it was the night before christmas , more sanitized version, apparently. there was an author who has taken some issue with the fact that santa smokes a pipe and in the year of 2012 thinks that's time for santa to clean up his act and he's got to stop smoking.
>> he also breaks and enters, but, you know, nobody is complaining about that, you know. got a fat guy with a beard coming down your chimney.
>> not to mention all the other vices. apparently deletes the verses the pipe he held in his teeth and the circsmoke encircled his head like a wreath. is this censorship, too far?
>> this is wrong. these are our childhood stories. okay, he's lived this long. he's doing all right.
>> his belly shook like a bowl full of jell-o.
>> honestly. i didn't know santa smoked. didn't stick with me.
>> you know, that's deep in the it was the night christmas poem.
>> that's ridiculous. all right. take three.
>> moving on.
>> this is,one is for savannah?
>> it is?
>> yes, it is. it's savannah's worst nightmare.
>> several blogs.
>> two french children in the countryside.
>> run, girl.
>> playing with free frogs in a bucket, and then lola gets a surprise. oh, hey now.
>> what is that?
>> oh, right on the nose.
>> she's handling it well. i would be freaking out.
>> savannah hates frocks. what would you do if that was you?
>> i don't even like to watch that. i don't know what i would do. that baby was so stoic and strong.
>> unlike me.
>> look how big that towed was.
>> if that had jumped on your face you'd be dead.
>> you guys were really nice about it. you put the frog right in my face.
>> this is true when they know your weakness.
>> the girls bring frogs in the house and i have to pretend like it's cool. you want to hold it? no, good. that's okay.
>> just washed my hands.
>> with you on that, anything like that coming right at me.
>> right on the face, thanks for the nightmare material for tonight.
>> trisha, we've got to taste your chili again. i saw matt chowing down.
>> you know what was really great, i like the idea of doing it on top of the corn bread , i love that.
>> that's very southern.
>> corn bread goes good with everything.
>> it looks healthy, too.
>> actually, and if you do the ground turkey even more healthy.
>> and sneaks the carrots past your kids.
>> which is great can.
>> and then to make it even healthier, put some bacon in it.
>> what is garth's favorite thing that you make?
>> that's tough to say. he's my tester. he loves it all. got anything to test for the nice book? sure, honey.
>> nice job if you can get it.
>> great chili.
