On October 6, 2006, Clay Aiken and his dear Granny Aiken were guests of the daytime talk show, The Martha Stewart Show.
Clay was there to promote his album, A Thousand Different Ways.
Clay and Martha chatted a bit about Clay’s food allergies. He explained that even if he touched the hand of someone who had touched a nut, he would get an immediate welt on the spot.
Martha asked Clay if he cooked much. Clay laughed and said never!!
After the break, Clay introduced his beautiful Granny Aiken. She was there to cook one of Clay’s favorite dishes, a Hot Pineapple Salad. Clay helped a bit and it was obvious that he was proud of his Granny.
When the show was over, Clay had an interview with the internet site, TV Fanatic. They quoted Clay:
…I know the recipe sounds weird and even Martha seemed little worried about making it, but that stuff is so good…I love that recipe. We always have it for the holidays and family get-togethers…
Towards the end of the show, Clay and his band performed the song, A Thousand Days.
There are three You Tubes of this program. I hope you will watch and enjoy the show.
Have you ever had any of Clay’s favorite Hot Pineapple Salad?
It is a dish that my family loves!
