If my ramekins could talk...

Last night as I was buttering the ramekins for the spinach soufflé I was preparing for my formal dinner for six, it occured to me, "Wow, it's so strange to think about all the people who have eaten from these ramekins!" Some are moderately famous people, some are very wealthy people, some are the "rock stars" of their industries, and some are "just regular folks" that wanted to do something special for their friends & families, and hired a chef to make dinner for the night.

That got me to thinking about exactly how many people have eaten what I've cooked. Not the huge parties I've worked as a lowly kitchen assistant for Pat!na and Foodw0rks and J@ck Whi+e, and all the other catering companies - that ranges in the thousands! - I'm talking about the events where I've been the Chef ...and when I think about that, it hard to grasp that number! 150 at a party one weekend... then a Personal Chef gig for one on a Tuesday. Then a dinner for 10 on a Thursday, then another dinner for 25 on the following Saturday. I can't say why I think it's so cool to think that this number increases every week... but it sure is cool!

My posts lately sound a little "kumbaya"... even to me. I wonder why that is?

Last thing I ate or drank: toast made from Italian bread, the way we used to eat it as kids (4" chunk of a crusty loaf, then cut lengthwise, buttered & put under the broiler until browned & crispy) and a latte.

  1. Oh JoAnna,
    I found the Pemmican.
    I bought the Pemmican.
    I loved the Pemmican.

  2. YAY!! I'm so glad you liked it. They're too rich for me, but Kelly swears by them. I'm still a Chai Luna girl myself. Eating concentrated food like Pemmican bars and other nutrition bars makes me think of two things: Judy Jetson and Soylent Green.

  3. HA HA
    It kept me full until dinner- which is a task with class and drive time. I always feel like munching something on that long drive home. Lately it's been gum!

  4. Hmmm...what if our forks could talk? You got me thinking about how many different people have used the same fork over and over again.

    Thanks for the laugh!
