Paula Deen Says Thanksgiving is All About 'F' Words

Before The Food Network's butter-loving queen bee Paula Deen wishes us a Happy New Year at the 2011 Rose Parade, the beloved Southern cook is talking about Thanksgiving, reports the Pasadena Star-News. Deen's love of Turkey Day is a simple as "F" words. Not "F" bombs, y'all, but rather these three congenial words: Food, family, and friends. The TV personality will be cooking at home for this holiday, but come January 1st, 2011, she'll be riding down Colorado Blvd. in the 122nd annual Tournament of Roses Parade.
