My husband has always called me the Messy Chef. Why?!?!?
- I don’t chop veggies and remove the bits of waste as I go. The cutting board or plate (whatever is handy) is messy and sometimes wet because I don’t shake out the excess water very well. In fact, the whole counter top is wet
- I don’t have things measured out into little bowls to add to recipe. I measure the seasoning and spices out as I go or just eye ball it.
- I clean up when I’m all done and not as I go
- I tend to multitask and not just focus on the cooking- occasionally burning things and causing the smoke detector to go off and my children to find “smoke helmets”
However, I still get the title of chef because I am good at what I make. I make nutritious, delicious food and still hold out that I will make enough someday that I can have a real chef cook for me but until my retirement from making meals, I will still hold the title of messy chef.
