Dream Job
May 7, 2010

In 13 work days, I’ll be living my actual Dream Job–A teacher during the summer months. For today I’m dreaming about the one that exists merely in my fantasy life.

I host my own cooking show on the food network and blog about food. My peers have suggested a show title: “Debi Does Dinner,” which I summarily rejected. I prefer “What’s for dinner, Debi?” My calling card would be simple, healthy meals with a daily menu plan. I’m a firm believer in eating well and often.

The first step toward the enjoyment of cooking is to marry well. Marry a chopper/griller man who enjoys healthy food and knows how to use a wine opener. Enlist him as a sous chef. This is not essential, we women are excellent and being self-sufficient, but it makes it more fun. Oh, and if he likes to chat with a dish rag in his hand and helps pack lunches for the following day, grab him and don’t let him go! There’s something terribly sexy about a guy who does dishes.
Let’s talk food . . .
Rule #1. You get what you pay for. Buy high quality, fresh, and local when available. A true foodie loves the grocery and visits several of them in the course of a week.

Rule #2. Keep it simple. On my show there will be no “reducing of sauces” or seven step recipes. If BF and I can’t prepare it in an hour’s time with a few ingredients, forget it. You’ll have to change the channel for the fancy stuff.

For today, I’m going to keep dreaming and enjoy my built-in snow day turned day off and show you a few pictures of Raisin Bread French Toast that we have created together. Okay, so I uploaded the photos and they appeared backwards. I just can’t quite get this picture uploading thing yet. Oh well.

The Universe is guiding me on an incredible adventure: my Plan B. I write here to share bits of my Odyssey, hopefully to inspire, encourage, or extend the virtual hand of friendship.

When I quit teaching in 2014, I could never have imagined the growth I would experience through travel, writing, reading, therapy, and introspection.

I believe human connection and compassion will go a long way toward our healing, and the best way to connect and feel compassion for one another is through the sharing of our stories.

Thank you for joining me here. I appreciate you and may we grow together.
