It’s Friday . . . an ugly Friday, but Friday nonetheless. It sounds like it will be a wickedly bad weekend weather-wise, so that may further delay the finishing touches of my very cool raised bed garden . . . Sigh.
Here’s a few things I wanted to share:
First, I am not a chef, I am a cook. But for Mother’s Day last month, my husband did something that made me feel like one . . . if only for a moment: He gave me two chefs coats and two absolutely fantastic Global knives. Now I am all ready for my stint on Top Chef . . . or maybe Hell’s Kitchen. Actually, given the choice, I would just love my own Food Network show. Food Network, are you listening? I’ll even promise to drop that pesky baby weight!
Anyway, back to my very cool coats . . . They even have Sarah’s Cucina Bella embroidered on them . . . how awesome is that? Of course I am afraid to get either dirty (one is black, one is white). Thoughts? How do you keep these coats crisp and clean? Should I wear my apron with it?
As for the knives, I have only cut myself a few times with the ridiculously sharp blades . . . knock on wood.
Second, Top Chef is almost over. I have really, really loved the discussions that have popped up in the comments and would love to keep that going. I was thinking of blogging the Next Food Network Star — which started last week (I missed the first episode, sadly . . . but hope to catch it this weekend.). Thoughts? Would you all tune in for that? Or is there another show? Any other ideas?
Have a great weekend . . . I am taking this one off.
