The Great Chef

2015-02-16

So after an entire week of cooking dinner every night I found that I am the most basic cook on the planet. I know how to do very few things and have a very limited recipe bank. If I had to cook for weeks in a row the menu would probably repeat itself every 5 days or so. I found myself wishing for a personal chef to come rescue me and my family.  Cooking not only takes time to prepare then it turns and requires more time to clean up after. I decided I would cut my dream short of a chef and a maid and just focus on the chef. We needed a chef that was adventurous in the kitchen. Someone to bring great flavor and experiences.

That is when I began to search the internet for great recipes that wouldn’t take hours in the making. Diverse but not crazy out there with foods that you could barely find or even pronounce. I found some pretty good websites that allowed me to create some really good dishes that had remarkable flavor but I did not have to spend three hours prepping for.

Sadly, unless I will the lottery I will probably never have a personal chef. So I guess until that day comes, I will continue the struggle of cooking a great dinner.

I am wishing for a house that cleans itself

2015-01-14

As I was helping clean our ever disgusting home today.  I started dreaming about a home that would clean itself. Than I decided i would wake up .  So i thought I would talk a little about the things i.e. clutter that leads to our homes and lives being in a wreck. It all starts with the floors. It just seems like a couple of toys or shoes are like gateway behaviors when it just opens the flood gates.  I do love some clean carpet and clean floors.

Carpets and floors can be the ultimate dirt and grim trap.  I can only imagine what gets tracked in on mine.  its kinda scary to think about really.  But ,I have noticed that when my floor is picked up the house stays clean.

Do not clean your carpet with a supermarket carpet cleaner.  Pay a professional…. its not that expensive.

Its the same way for the dishes.

When we keep the sink cleaned out the kitchen stays clean.  Its kinda of funny how these things are like tipping points for household despair.  So anyway there is my random post for a while.

How to get the best deal on Your limo rental

2014-12-09

Limousines are ever loving amazing!!!

You gotta love a white glove opening a door for you.  I mean I can;t afford one on a regular basis but those people starring out me  don’t know that. We book them for everything when we got out.

Who wants to worry about the DD crap?  There are so many local options. The local market is very competitive which keeps the pricing in check.  Normally if you work at it you can get them down to around a hundred an hour for a stretch limo or hummer.

Check these guys out.

We have booked through them a couple of times with pretty good results. But, always check around.

Make sure they have updated limos.  We have booked through some companies when you get some ragged old crap.  If you are booking a limo, you want extravagant not worn out 10 year old stuff.  If they are a major player in the market they will have updated their fleet.

Sometimes you pay for what you get.  Remember that because it normally holds true in just about everything.  If somebody is half the cost of their competitors than there is probably a reason. Duh… its better to let somebody else find out the reason and not you…LOL

Number 1 tip of the day

Ask about the corporate rate.

It will be cheaper and you will get better service.  It doesn’t matter if you are with a corporation or not.  If they can afford to knock a few dollars off for a fortune 500 company, they can afford to knock off a few dollars for you.

Oh, ask about the refreshments. Some companies will only provide non alcoholic  beverages.

Don’t know about you but if I am renting a limo for the evening, I am going to have a drink.  Its not everybody’s cup of tea though but is worth asking.

Now that you a pretty much an expert on booking your next limo.  I expect that your are getting primo service and deals everywhere you go when you are booking any kind of transportation service.

Don’t be afraid to ask if you have any questions. Post a comment and I will answer you from my infinite limo renting wisdom

No really
