Balsamic Glazed Tempeh/Sweet Potato/Kale
Remember when I was going to post about pumpkins all month a few months ago. Yeah that didn’t work out too well. I got sick of pumpkins really fast…then I got sick….then I hurt my back. Before all of that though…I GOT A JOB!
I haven’t worked at all in the last 5 years. I stopped 2 months before having my first child. Then I had a second one 1 1/2 years ago. The job came about suddenly and I wasn’t prepared for it at all but I think that’s the way it was suppose to be. Ever since graduating from Culinary School I’ve worked in restaurants and for caterers but what I really wanted to do was be a personal chef. Its not that easy to do though. It can be very hard to get clients so I kept sticking with my “9-5” restaurant/catering gigs. A few months ago a friend recommended me to someone she knew and I’ve been working as a personal chef ever since! I’ve even managed to pick up a few more clients through the original client and have also catered a few party’s as well. The last 1/4 of 2012 has been pretty sweet.
Seitan and Root Vegetable Stew
Here are two of the many meals I’ve prepared for my clients. A plus to this job is alway’s coming up with new ideas. I’ve become an even better cook the past few months and I’m grateful for that.
