Couple of flubs on Rachel Rays week in a day....

Up early this morning so I watched RR's show. Hadn't ever seen a whole episode or even half of one so I watched it as I sipped my herb tea. The show featured Chicken pot pies, Louisiana shrimp, Brazilian or Argentinian chili with Chimichurri, French Onion soup and Moroccan Chicken with Pine Nut couscous.

She basically does one dish then it breaks for commercials.
Watching the show airing this morning, after commercial was over she came back on with most of the third dish already made, the chili with Chimichurri.
So you didn't know or see what had gone into the pot and wonder if the episode got jumbled up while taping or was it cut or edited wrong. It's not like she returned to start a segment, it cut right in to the middle of her opening the frig and talking mid sentence. Don't know if this makes sense but wondered if anyone else watched this morning. Not a big deal, I can always go into the food network website and view the recipe.

The other thing done on the show when making her Moroccan Chicken was to slice a couple of lemons and place them in heated and melted butter to brown them. They became a component of the dish and were fully incorporated into the one pot. But so were the pits or seeds in the lemon. I'm curious is anyone would have removed the seeds? I would have if I made her dish. Why wouldn't she have taken the care to remove them? I don't want to bite down on a few seeds that I'm not aware of in a dish. It's like chomping into a big green olive in your martini only to realize after the fact that it's got a pit in it.

I remember watching that show with GR called Master Chef or something like that, anyway, in that show I remember one or more of the judges said they didn't mind the lemon pits/pips/seeds in the dish. I found that odd that [that] wasn't a reason to take points off. Maybe the hard pebble things in lemons soften when cooked?
