OK ... I'M HAPPY!!! - Page 2

post #31 of 36

   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.

Good job man, for trying your best and learning from the experience. I bet it didn't suck half as much as you said it did, and you're probably more motivated to cook now.

Whatever comes next will be even better. Keep cookin'!

Sorry to hear things did not turn out so well for you Iceman. I had hoped you were going to take the show on the rainbow ... However, now you have the experience to be more sucessful on the next one ...

 

All my best,

Dan, Gone Fishing,

 

How are you ? Plans for the Summer ?  We are over in Puglia, Italia at our summer home, however, I thought of you the other day when I made a shellfish paella ...

  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)
