On Simplifying.....{hiring a personal chef}

It sounds so snotty.
I'm not a snotty person.
{I'm a tad more sassy than snotty.}
But I do like the way it sounds.
Hiring a personal chef.
And....I could totally get used to it.

Here's why.....

Meal One....Grilled Chicken & Veggies with the yummiest garlic bread ever.
Recipe for garlic bread coming soon.

Meal Two....Rosemary skewered shrimp, grilled artichokes & Greek pasta salad.

Meal Three....Pork, Fried Rice & Edamame.

All three meals were to.die.for.
They were just as good hot or cold.
We had a few leftovers for lunch the next day.

I posted last week that I had hired a friend to cook for us while I got ready for Queen Bee Market.
I knew it would be a stressful, jammed pack week.
I knew I could handle breakfast, lunches and laundry to take care of my family.
But knew dinner would fall by the wayside creating grouchy kids and a grouchy husband.

I knew our evening hours would be precious and didn't want to waste time sitting at a restaurant when we could be home working on last minute projects.

And...let me tell you the whole week was heavenly. HEAVENLY. That totally needed CAPS!
The food was amazing. The price was less than what it would have cost us if we had eaten out.
But we tend to eat out at higher priced joints like Gotts instead of fast food.

{Gotts used to be Taylors Refreshers and was featured on Diners, Drive-ins, & Dives!
We are spoiled with them in town. We just ate there Monday night. I should have hired Stephanie for one more week. I've got another craft fair tomorrow, Saturday & Sunday!}
Tonight I'm cooking dinner. We are having frozen lasagna and bagged Caesar salad.
Now isn't that glamorous!

  1. oooh. hiring a chef. something i could get used to, too. i enjoy cooking, but certainly not when i don't have the time.
    and hey - a frozen lasagna and bagged salad is better than takeout!

  2. I totally don't think that's snotty at all! We have a house cleaner and it's one thing I would NOT give up! It's been amazing!

  3. Holy bananas those meals look amazing!!! Does she ship meals too?:)

  4. Wow! What a great idea! How awesome that you could still have family meals together at your home even during a stressful week. Good for you!

  5. I am so jealous, but think it really is a brilliant idea! Just thinking of how much we spend eating out when things get hectic - ugh! Everything looks delicious!

  6. I so need to eat those meals!
    They look delicious.

  7. Oh my gosh, where did you FIND this lady? All the meals look gourmet! Good for you for preventing some stress ahead of time. :)

  8. Holy Moly! Ok - #1) Great idea!! #2) Yes - the meals look FABULOUS and #3) Hope your craft fair(s) went very well!

    I just rediscovered your blog and shop and am so glad I did! :)

  9. well i love to cook and yet I find myself sort of wanting to hire your friend...yum!

  10. How lucky are you! That food looks amazing!! I never thought to hire a cook. I always want to hire a maid but that never happens.


I heart comments! Just one rule that I'm sure your momma taught you...if you don't have anything nice to say...please don't say anything at all!
