My New Kitchen Philosophy

I found this on another blog I read. It was originally printed on a restaurant menu, I happen to think I should make it my new kitchen philosophy...
Deletions of a specific ingredient of a meal are time consuming and error-prone due to the volume we produce daily.
Special requests and deletions cause a large back-up which means everyone has to wait longer.
Remember each meal is made fresh from scratch and we want each meal leaving the kitchen to be “the” meal we created.
We ask that when we are very busy (almost all the time), accept the meal “as is” and then YOU pick out what YOU do not like; that mushroom, tomato, onion or raisin- if consumed-will probably NOT jeopardize your health, but MY health is jeopardized when exceptions are demanded.
Please remember this is my kitchen and I’m the cook. I am not your personal chef. If the items aren’t the ones you want to eat, looks like you are out of luck.

Play This Game

Have you ever played Whoonu, as in WHO KNEW? It's a game made by the peeps that make Cranium. It is the perfect game because it's fun for kids and adults. The box says it is for ages 8 and up, but don't let that fool you. We have played this at adult only parties, and also played it for family game night. I picked it up on a whim a few years back and it is by far one of our best games. We took it to a dinner party last night and we played for hours! We ended up wanting to stay later to play so we had my son come play when his curfew was up so that he wouldn't have to be home alone. He played a few rounds with us before we finally called it a night. Since fall is here, and 'round these parts that means it will be time to hunker down with the family for a cozy night by the fire, I suggest you add this to your arsenal of entertainment. You won't be disappointed!

Annual Ugly T-Shirt Day

The one day out of the year that I willingly wear a shirt that I KNOW is ugly.
