Okay...I'll give you your due (or un-due). Your description of what unfolded sounds pretty bad. But I've got to say...we (the internet people) sit in our chairs ripping the reality food show contestants. Many times saying, or thinking we (or one of our friends) could do a better job. But I just get the feeling when it all comes down to it, and you only get one chance to pick, plan and execute A dish...I just get the feeling it's much harder than we think.
OK ... I'M HAPPY!!! - Page 2
Hi Margcata! The paella looks delicious! Our family took a nice driving vacation to various parts of Florida...we hit a ton of beaches and lots of fresh seafood. The images of Puglia, Italy are breathtaking. I'll get a few pictures up of the kids on vacation and send you a message.
I was really pulling for IceMan to make the show. Not only is he a fellow Chicago native...but a ChefTalk'er! But I'm guessing...with his drive and determination...this won't be the last of his opportunities.
Take care Margcata!
LOL. Thank you for your thoughts. I was a perfect example of someone who "just didn't get it". That's a funny thing too. The first thing my wife said was "... for someone with your experience ... and all the shows you've watched, ripping the bajeebies out of the contestants ... you would think that YOU wouldn't make the mistakes that YOU did ... I guess you suck huh?".
Next time will be different (I hope, LOL).
OMG. I just realized how much I sound like a guy who's pet just died. ... SORRY. It's only a freaking game show. I think I'm gonna puke.
