Chef Robert Irvine pausing for a photo with Disney Moms Panelist Kathie and me in the middle of his Dinner Impossible challenge!

{Not-so-Wordless…} One of the unexpected highlights of the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration was happening upon acclaimed celebrity chef Robert Irvine. We had no idea until that moment that he was there shooting a Dinner Impossible challenge. He was meeting with his team and happened to see Kathie and I walking by with our families. {I think the pink jackets must’ve caught his eye ;)} He waved then walked right over to talk to Gio, who was hanging out in his stroller with his bottle. Kathie asked him if he was cooking us dinner tonight and he said he had no idea, he was just told he needed to cook dinner for 400!

Kathie mentioned she was a vegetarian and was he going to make something for her? He joked that she wasn’t allowed to eat and pretended to walk off, then came back, asked if she ate fish (Nope!) and pretended to storm off again. Then, he came back, asked her name, “Is that with a C or a K?” and wrote it in his little notebook along with the fact that she was a vegetarian. He was getting called away by his team at that point but we managed to snap this picture of us. He was so wonderful to come over and talk with us when he didn’t really have to {and kind of had a LOT to do!}. And Kathie did enjoy the vegetarian lo mein dish served later that night!

I can’t wait to see the airing of this episode of Dinner Impossible, which J. managed to find out should be the 9th show of the new season, airing in June or July. I’m sure I’ll post a reminder for it!
