I hate washing chef coats! Have I mentioned that before?
Instead of washing chef coats the other day, here’s what I did instead . . . read more…
I’ll have to admit, one perk I love about being married to a chef is the random samples we get to enjoy as a family. You know what I’m talking about.
Your chef walks in the door late one night after work with a box full of samples – bread, steak, seafood, forks, knives, napkins . . .
The funny thing about samples, is that the chef only needs a bite or two to tell if he likes something and wants to use it in the restaurant. And what do you do when you have 10 different steaks to try and get only one of each? You can’t sell them in the restaurant, obviously. So you cook them and try them (and depending on the job, you can do this at home so your family gets to enjoy the samples.)
It’s just blows my mind that it’s the end of the year already! It’s been a crazy year full of job changes and surgeries for the chef and of course everything that comes with those things around here at home!
As a blogger, it’s fun to look back at the posts I’ve written over the past year and see which ones were the most popular. This post about dating a chef (from 2014) still brings the most traffic to my site, along with this one on how to clean a chef coat.
AHHHHHHHH!!!!! I have no idea what to get my chef for Christmas!!!!
(My chef husband is asking for a peaceful and calm home and just wants to have fun as a family, no matter what we are doing. I’m not sure how I’m going to wrap that up or pull it off, but I guess I’ll get working on it.)
I’ve compiled a list of ideas from many of you in this post over here that you can take a peek at.
How many times have you grabbed a pan handle after your chef, only to burn yourself? For me, it’s too many times to count. You think I would have learned by now . . .
Apparently in every professional kitchen my chef/husband has taken over in his career, he’s always gone in and reorganized, just shortly after he started. He gets rid of things that are taking up “prime real estate” that are never used, throws away things in the freezer that shouldn’t be there . . . I’m sure many of your chefs have done the same things numerous times.
But what happens when the chef’s new kitchen he’s taking over is the one in your home?
Let’s be honest. The kitchen at home has always been MINE! It’s been mine because I do the majority of the cooking, obviously. Half the time he can’t find anything because the way I organize is not how he would choose to organize, and it just doesn’t make sense to him. Plus, he doesn’t cook at home very often because, well . . . he’s working!
There’s really no easy way to tell you this. But after reading the title, it’s pretty obvious what this post is about.
I’m not the greatest at easing into things. I just kind of say them as it is. So here it goes.
I have been diagnosed with Stage IV breast cancer which has spread to my sternum. It’s been a long month full of tests, waiting, more tests and Dr. appointments. Because of this, I have dropped off the face of Social Media the past couple months. No newsletter, only a few new blog posts, no happy birthday posts on Facebook . . . I just didn’t feel like writing and my life just completely turned upside down.
My emotions have been all over the place as we found out news (and then went on vacation for two weeks which was AMAZING!!!! Hope to tell you about that one day soon!).
