2 Broke Girls, The Momma D Edition

This is a sponsored post.  As always, all opinions an views expressed are my own.

My third year of college I moved out of the dorms and into my first apartment, which I shared with my friend Mai.  It was a beautiful apartment complete with brick walls, two huge closets for both of us and a large enough living room to entertain friends.  But it wasn’t really first apartment cheap.

So after paying rent, gas for our cars to get back an forth uptown to campus every day and all of the other expenses college brings, we were pretty broke.  We figured we would cook dinner together every night, and we alternated weeks that we were responsible for buying the ingredients and cooking dinner for.

Two broke girls create “interesting” dinners.  Granted, Mai was Japanese and she could make a heck of meal of white rice and stir fry with a hand full of fresh veggies.  But our go to fancy schmancy, feel good about our cooking skills dinner was spaghetti.  As in buy a can of spaghetti sauce and make it feel more grown up by adding in onions, peppers and garlic.  It was a rolling in money kind of day if we sprung for the $1 garlic bread from the supermarket deli.

That’s why I love watching 2 Broke Girls on CBS.  It make me laugh and remember a time where although money was not plentiful, true friendship was.

Check out this video clip from the show:



2 BROKE GIRLS is a comedy about the unlikely friendship that develops between two very different young women who meet waitressing at a diner in trendy Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and form a bond over their dream of one day owning their own successful cupcake business.  Only one thing stands in their way – they’re broke.  Sarcastic, street-smart Max Black met the sophisticated, school-smart Caroline Channing when the uptown trust fund princess was having a run of bad luck due to her father’s Wall Street scandal, which caused her to lose all her money and forced her to give waitressing a shot.  At first, Max sees Caroline as an entitled rich girl, but she’s surprised to find that Caroline has as much substance as she does style. When Caroline discovers Max’s knack for baking amazing cupcakes, she visualizes a lucrative future for them and they begin to save money to reach their start-up money goal of $250,000.  As the girls’ cupcake tally expands week-to-week, they become closer to their goal and to each other.  At the diner they are surrounded by their offbeat, colorful “work family”: Oleg, an overly flirtatious cook; Earl, a hip 75-year-old cashier; Han, the eager-to-please owner of the diner; and Sophie, the girls’ outrageous upstairs neighbor. As Max and Caroline climb toward their goal, we see that their “smarts” plus their “hearts” might just be the recipe for success.

Tune in TONIGHT, Monday nights  at 8:30-9:00 PM, ET/PT on CBS!
