How To Netflix & Chill With The Barefoot Contessa

Today, the entire first season of Ina Garten's Barefoot Contessa: Back to Basics hits Netflix, giving new meaning to the term "binge watching." Because instead of just getting high, ordering Seamless, and binge-watching some show everybody's talking about, this weekend you'll be getting high, ordering Seamless, and binge-watching Barefoot Contessa. And let's be honest — probably everyone is doing the same damn thing.

Try to contain your excitement! Or don't. Now is the time to tweet about how happy this news makes you. Snapchat a video of yourself doing your best Ina Garten impression or Instagram the TV remote atop that Barefoot Contessa book you got for Christmas last year. (You know, the Paris one.)

Then, log onto Netflix. If you don't have an account, you can totally ask your parents for the password to theirs. If your parents don't have a Netflix account, you're trapped in 1995 and should get to a landline to call for help, immediately.

Now, head into the kitchen and make some munchies. Try your hand at a sandwich, or, if that proves too difficult, open up a box of wine and a bag of Cheetos.

Take a bite of your hard work and relax. Or, just watch Garten eating things she's made that are actually good. Yeah, let's leave this to the professionals.

Long story short: Ina Garten is amazing and we are not worthy.
