Chrissy Teigen Promises to Trade Homemade Banana Bread in Exchange for Romaine Lettuce
"The trade will be made 6 feet apart and we will place the goods on the floor. no funny business," Chrissy Teigen said
Desperate times call for desperate measures.
Chrissy Teigen offered her Twitter followers a trade on Monday: a loaf of her homemade banana bread in exchange for romaine lettuce.
“I’ll make a banana bread for anyone that has romaine lettuce,” Teigen wrote on Twitter Monday, promising that social distancing rules would be maintained. “The trade will be made 6 feet apart and we will place the goods on the floor. no funny business.”
Comedian Chris Klemens answered the call, promising he had three heads of romaine lettuce in Studio City, California, up for grabs.
“How do I know this isn’t an old pic of u an romaine, hold up something timely,” Teigen responded on Twitter.
Klemens answered with a video, proving the date with his Apple Watch.
“I don’t f—ing have a newspaper, I’m a millennial!” he said.
But the Bring the Funny host was satisfied, and agreed to trade with Klemens.
“Ok Chris. I trust you. Let me make this bread and I’ll be in your area tomorrow early afternoon!!” she wrote back.
However, the cookbook author soon revealed that her initial plan was met with some setbacks.
“Crap @ChrisKlemens I only have enough for one banana bread and john is not happy I’m trading it. Would you accept half a banana bread? please … my family. Have mercy on us,” the mother of two wrote in another tweet, adding, “I will throw in a slice of pie.”
Earlier on Monday, Teigen shared a screenshot snippet of a text conversation on Instagram, in which she asked her friends for — you guessed it — romaine lettuce.
“U got any romaine lettuce guys?” Teigen wrote in the text chain. “Will pay $$.”
“Wait. Actually romaine lettuce!?” a friend responded, adding, “Lol.”
“Yes,” Teigen answered.
On Tuesday, like promised, Teigen delivered half a loaf of banana bread and two slices of pie to Klemens.
Klemens shared photos of the transaction on Twitter, which shows himself holding the treats while standing 6 feet away from Teigen and John Legend. Teigen is pictured happily holding a bag of romaine lettuce.
“Thank you all for your unwavering support over the course of this saga. We made it @chrissyteigen,” Klemens wrote alongside the photos.
This wouldn’t be the first time Teigen asked Twitter to help her with a certain food item. Back in 2017, Teigen tweeted about needing bananas for banana bread and successfully crowd-sourced 6 of them and sent her mom Vilailuck Teigen to pick the fruit up.
While it remains a mystery what dish Teigen plans on making with the romaine lettuce, the Lip Sync Battle host has been cooking up a storm with her family while practicing social distancing amid the ongoing novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
But in addition to sharing her Insta-worthy recipes with her followers, the social media maven is keeping things relatable as ever, admitting on Saturday that she gave up and ordered McDonald’s after preparing part of the meal.
“I got wine drunk, gave up and ordered McDonald’s. Gonna marinate the chicken overnight instead,” she wrote on Twitter after a fan shared a snippet of her Instagram Story that showed a McDonald’s burger on her lap.
