I have done a bad thing.

I have forgotten to stop being a chef once I left the kitchen, 
to leave all the problems of the day at work,
to change my very being,
back into a patron.

I re-entered a place full of the unknowing,

It is like Clark Ken tell people what it's like to be Superman.

In the ten years of being a chef and now being a stay at home mom. I still can't leave the chef part of me off.

Never have I been a patron, and really I don't want to be...even at home.

I know, neather can I. I posted a question on the cooking site, than tried explained were I was coming from, and then all I got back was a lot of name calling and finger pionting.

What was the question? If you ever need advice or stuff, my email is magick74@telus.net. Some people are just rude and nasty.

I am looking for a sauerkraut soup recipe, its for a co-worker of my wife.

Thu, Feb. 16th, 2006 07:02 pm (UTC)

2 pounds sauerkraut, drained
1-2 pounds pork ribs
1 quart tomatoes, cut up with juice (a large 28-ounce can is fine)
1 medium onion, sliced
1-3 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tablespoon sugar (optional)
water, to your preferred thick/thin consistency (about 8 cups)
salt and black pepper to taste
paprika to taste
Combine all ingredients in a large pot, bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover, and simmer 2-3 hours, until the meat readily falls off the bones.

Pick out the bones, correct seasoning, and serve. This is excellent with homemade bread. It is also really good with boiled potatoes on the side.

Hope this helps.

You would like to think you are a special snowflake, but it's just not true. Like I mentioned in the post snarking you, it's okay to be an arrogant jerk in the industry as long as you have the talent to back it up. This does not include asking internet communities to do your homework.

cooking is certainly not where I would go for advice, or...anything, really, but I do think you owe the community an apology.

First, I have aapologized.
Second, Its not homework, if you had read everything, you would have read that I was looking for the recipe for a co-worker of my wife. He had had the soup when he was in Germany, and wanted to know how it had been made. I hope that you don't take this as me being rude or condescending , because I don't mean to be.
