Time for dinner with Kitchensurfing

The amount that Michelle and I have to get done in a day, often feels like an unrealistic mission that we set ourselves on. Between the kids, work, our hubbies and LIFE there is a LOT to do.

What I struggle with the most - is eating.  My number one priority is to feed my children healthy, balanced meals morning, noon and night. That's a lot of meals to think about on a weekly basis. And they are good eaters! So we don't just pop in chicken nuggets. We cook real meals. With everything I have to manage in my life, I often skip meals because I just can't find the time to eat. Shame shame shame.

Well lucky for me (and my hubby who often eats cheese and chips for dinner when I don't have time to cook) some genius in New York City came up with a chefs on demand concept. Literally. A chef comes in with a wheely bag full of prepared ingredients, pots, sheet pans and cooking utensils.

Last night we tested this service for a romantic, relaxing meal just for the two of us.  We scheduled the chef to come after our kids were in bed so we could actually enjoy our dinner. Our chef's name was Claire. She arrived promptly and was incredibly sweet. Claire took over our kitchen for about 20 minutes and left us with an insanely delicious dinner. All I did was set the table.
