Odds and Ends

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.

Hi Sarah, Wow, you are getting to be one snazzy cook. As someone who knew you before you were famous, I am impressed. ;-)

Shawn got you the perfect Mother's Day gifts, I see! Very nice. I hope to see you on your own cooking show some day.

Sarah - Love the jacket. I was going to ask you if you watched The Next Food Network Star. I'd love to have you blog about it. I've really enjoyed the Top Chef discussions too.

Hope you can catch the first episode this weekend. The contestants are really interesting & it looks like it's going to be a great season. With Top Chef & Hell's Kitchen both ending soon, I'm glad this is just starting off. Be sure to let me know what you think of Lisa's 3 C's. =)
