Ree Drummond is all about cooking simple, family-friendly meals. She’s famous for making tons of delicious comfort food on The Pioneer Woman, like broccoli-cheese orzotto, tomato soup, chicken nuggets with cheese and marinara and more cheese—anyone else’s stomachs suddenly growling?
But with so many dishes featured in every show, you have to wonder: What happens to all that food when Ree is done filming?
When the Drummonds alone can’t get the job done, Ree looks to the 25-plus people who usually help her film The Pioneer Woman. (Though, lately, her kids have been producing the show since her UK-based team can’t travel.) “If my family doesn’t finish it off, the crew definitely will,” she says.
Inevitably, some food sits out just a bit too long for people to eat. Hey, it takes time to capture the perfect shot! When that happens, Ree has a backup plan: Her seven hungry dogs.
“In those cases when the food needs to be held on to a little longer for photography or other reasons, the Drummond dogs are the happy recipients,” she says.
It’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it. 😉
