Chef vs. Handy Ma'am

It seems some people are surprised by Jeff and me, but we make an odd but good match.

Example: As mentioned before, Jeff has become quite the chef- and I love it! He's finishing up an 8 week series of classes entitled 'the fine art of cooking'. I've loved eating his homework, such as the steak with roasted asparagus and bernaise sauce shown above. So Jeff's birthday was last week and mine is today (happy birthday to me!)

Jeff received for his birthday: a digital cooking scale, meat thermometer, a long apron to go with his chef's coat, bamboo cutting board, and citrus zester.

Rachel received for her birthday: new screwdriver set, new level (my old one is lost somewhere in a wall of our basement), and a big old Home Depot gift card- YES!
