a cheffing diva…

There’s a lady at work that I have mentioned on here before, and we will call her the cheffing diva. It is she to whom I spill all my culinary aspirations each day and she does the same in return. Both of our interests in food is rather obvious by our ample frames, but as other larger than life folk may know, we stick together.

So we rescheduled for tonight, thinking that we could give it a bit of a valentines theme and do some heart shaped whatever or some red roses or something.
