Lady oh lady why do you work in a job that you hate?Could it be you would rather work here than stay home with your lazy unemployed mate?This really can't be where you wanted to make a start, but it's got to be better than saying "Welcome to WalMart."Dealing all day with school kids & sick… MORE

Decided to avoid the pile of clean laundry on my bed & punch in on the blog instead.  It's been several months since I've written.  Hope all is well with those watching the blog.  Pretty ho-hum on the hairnet lady front.  I haven't taken any of them out yet, even… MORE

10:31pm & instead of being in bed, I'm up surfing with a nasty case of strep throat.  Serves me right I guess.  We've been sleeping with the windows open the past several nights, something we hoosiers shouldn't do before June.  I'm glad the weather has finally started to cooperate though.… MORE

I haven't blogged for nearly a month now..........am guessing I lacked either sleep or inspiration.  I have been to the Gulf coast & back however.  Last fall I made the remark that my kids (3 teenagers + a 3 year old) have never been on a proper road trip/family vaction.  I… MORE

Good morning all.  I was just fortunate enough to receive a call from my breakfast cook (5:30 AM), luckily it was just a question about a renal diet & not "I can't come in today." I'm unable to go back to sleep, so I'm blogging to you instead. It always makes me wonder why the heck I ever… MORE

I'm glad February is over.  Snow, mud,a little sun here & there, one cool rainbow, more mud, more snow.  Highlight of the month was watching our greenhouse take flight & try to make an escape.  It still lies motionless in the field East of our house.  The lack of sun & being… MORE

We don't have "regular" television, so I have never watched this program (we unhooked the dish/antenna 6 years ago & have never looked back).  I do believe, however, that my day today may have made a good episode.  It all started at 5:30am,  where I cooked breakfast for a… MORE

Has one ever seen the SNL spoof based on the Adam Sandler "Lunch Lady Land?"  I don't care for the majority of Sandler's work, but he must have done his time in a hospital kitchen at some point.  I live this song almost daily.  Today it was floating pot roast, which believe it or… MORE

I am not a holiday person.  I spent 5 years running food & beverage at a resort which was a 365 day a year job, including weekends, holidays, Saturday night weddings, Sunday brunches ect.......pretty well burned me out on holidays, because I was always working.  Nothing says… MORE

About Me
A generation "X"er who had the good sense to marry a patient woman, who happens to be a chef (those two characteristics rarely go together). I am one of the few men who have the ability & ignorance to claim the title "food service director."
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy grilling out & making soups & stocks from scratch. I make some mean salads too.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Eating whatever my mom prepares - she was probably the reason I got into the food service business to begin with. Guess I can blame her.
My cooking triumphs
Implementing restaurant style menus & room service for hospital patients - my attempt at breaking the "Hospital Food" stereotype that it no longer deserves.
My cooking tragedies
I did set a char broiler on fire once (but that was on purpose, they needed a new one) & NEVER add liquid margarine to a chocolate fountain. Not a good idea.
