While we spent our weekend in our usual routine—rewatching episodes of The Barefoot Contessa—Ina was spending time in her East Hampton, New York, home with somebody else. (Hint: It wasn’t us, and it wasn’t Jeffrey.)
She was busy being BFFs with none other than Jennifer Garner. How do we know? Instagram, of course.
The duo posted matching selfies of their morning in the kitchen, and Jennifer offered us a humble-brag caption: “I understand if this brings up big feelings for you, but I spent the morning with @inagarten. In her barn kitchen, in her garden, having coffee…yes. It’s true. I even got a sneak peek of the new Barefoot Contessa cookbook— #CookLikeAPro—it’s fabulous. Thank you for the perfect morning, Ina, you are beloved for a reason. I can’t wait to continue the conversation. Jen. #sheseverythingwewanthertobe #luckyme”
Meanwhile, Ina kept it short and sweet, saying, “Such a fun morning with @jennifer.garner! Nothing more soul satisfying for me than to spend time with a smart, compassionate woman I admire.” OK, we knew the two were friendly, but not sneak-peek-of-my-unreleased-
If we sound jealous, it’s because we are. (Duh.)
