Would you ever want a personal chef, or do you enjoy cooking your own meals?

Can I have a personal chef? Where can I get one? I have a list of food I would like to try on my Pinterest board. . . food or something like it. If the chef needs me to do the grocery shopping, no problem.
I will even do the dishes. By the time I drag myself into the kitchen, I’d rather go out to eat or just eat a sandwich. Food is so much better when someone else makes it unless the someone else is me.
The Swedish Chef would be entertaining. My neighbors might get mad if he cooks their chickens. He’d have to catch them first. Gordon Ramsey can be funny but I don’t want him to make me cry in my own kitchen. I do enough of that on my own.
My boyfriend is a great cook. I owe him about several thousand times of either cooking or taking him out to eat. The vote is usually to go out for lunch.
Here is a link to a recipe from Buns in My Oven. There are many other recipes on this site. http://www.bunsinmyoven.com/2014/04/28/salted-caramel-browned-butter-cookie-cups/?utm_source=feed&utm_campaign=rss-no-more&utm_medium=rss

  2. QP and Eye (Linda) – I was born in Kenya and sent to boarding school at the age of 5. 100 miles from home to which I returned at holiday times if my mother was well enough, if not I remained at school. The misery of those times still haunts the recesses of childhood. Happy memories of early childhood centre around an African maid, Maria, who fulfilled the role of my mother. I missed her the most when I was at school. When I was 10 the family moved to South Africa where again I was despatched to boarding school. At least I got to go home every second weekend. By that stage my parents were still bemused by their role as mother and father which caused confusion when I headed off on my own from an early age by taking control of my life. When my decisions grated against my father’s precarious set of values I felt his non-verbal disapproval. I grew up angry and rebellious which even the Catholic boarding school couldn’t ‘knock out of me’. The rosary routines, Hail Mary’s and Glory Be’s only gave me something else against which to rail. My mother totally abdicated her role as mother when I was 14, she chose to die instead of continue to fight. Was it too much to ask that she be functional and participate in the intimate relationship that family calls for. Maybe she was capable of that once but lost hope with my father’s austere ‘stiff upper lip’ approach to life. Decades later and I’m still processing the emotions that time of my life evoke. The most courageous thing I ever did was leave home at 17 and move as far away from home as I could. We’d been to Cape Town on a number of holidays and it was where I was drawn to when I booked that one way train ticket. It was one of the many turning points in my life. Things moved quickly as I found employment with a newspaper, became absorbed into a group of young people and embraced the social life to which I’d not been exposed to in my home. It was a wonderful time. The experiences of travel forever changed my perspective of South Africa and the white supremesist regime. Returning after two years absence the oppression was tangible as I entered passport and customs control. I moved into a house of young people who had strong opinions that fitted well with my new found politics. A number of nights we’d returned home to find the house had been ransacked, completely. The police had come in and searched every room in the house, the housemaid told us. She was petrified. After a second such instance I decided it was time for me to leave South Africa or become a part of the oppression, just by remaining. My silent protest, against a system I could no longer tolerate, made me look to other shores to call home. The police invasion incident left me feeling displaced and unsettled. I settled in New Zealand where I married, raised two children and worked part time in the community sector. And now I live in Australia with my husband of so many years. I fulfilled a lifelong dream of studying at university and completed a Bachelor of Social Science (Social Welfare) in 2011. One of the best experiences of my life. I now work as a drug and alcohol counsellor. I’ve had my blog for a few years now visiting it on and off to dabble with words. However, I’ve accepted the November (2013) challenge to write each day. My first job though has been to update this bio so the person you read is who I am today. In light of that I consider myself a ‘baby blogger’ but I’m committed to moving forward one dolly step at a time.

    Gordon Ramsey was on my list of potentials but you just bumped him off when you found the Swedish Chef. He would have to be a contender. Thank you for reminding me of happy times with my kids it made me smile.

  3. rgemom – Working my way, imperfectly, through the mothering of three children. Still figuring out who I am and what I want to be when I grow up. Mom, wife, shuttler, writer, wanna-be photographer, journal-er of life, runner, scrapbooker, volunteer, music-lover. Our oldest son was born 14 weeks too soon. Our daughter arrived 12 1/2 months later (8 days past my due date). Our youngest is diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, PDD-NOS. I write about it all.

    I would LOVE a personal chef. I’m so not patient/creative/that interested in being in the kitchen. If a recipe has too many steps, too many items, or takes a long time, forget it. But yet I’m bored with fixing/eating the same things all the time. Gordon Ramsey = scary. The Swedish Chef would be awesome….at least entertaining.

      That’s what I thought! Swedish Chef would be funny. 🙂 Even if he chased the neighbors chickens, it would be entertaining.

        Might be worth the wrath of the neighbors. lol

  4. Authentic Motherhood – United States – I'm a mother and a writer. I'm an introvert, a perfectionist and a master procrastinator. Not always in that order. I love good coffee and expensive chocolate and can be bribed with both. I write about things that matter.

    Ha! The Swedish Chef is my favorite! Your post made me smile. 🙂
