So Glad I Chickened Out

Was it last autumn when I mused over applying to be the next Food Network star?? Was I drunk or delusional? What could I possibly have been thinking? I don't even have a t.v. and haven't watched Food Network in ages. So glad I didn't go there.

When I saw this clip last night, I was brought back to my temporary moment of insanity and breathed a great sigh of relief that I hadn't gone beyond contemplating the application. I couldn't even handle the stress of an ordinary restaurant kitchen (have I mentioned those days?), let alone what was going on amongst the contestants of the new show.

If I did have a t.v. I would not be able to avert my eyes. Check it out for a good laugh or two.

I don't know if you've written about your days working in a restaurant, but I'd love to read about it! Where? What were you doing?

haha as a culinary school dropout, I can definitely relate to being a chump when it comes to professional kitchens. I would definitely love to hear about some of your experiences though.

count me in on wanting read about your restaurant life. I stop by your blog often...it's definitly one of the better food blogs out there.

I've been wanting to ask somebody, and can't think of anyone better...Do you have any recipes for homemade baby foods? What to start off with first? I loathe Gerber processed jar food--it looks like vomit!

Keep writing!
