Top Ten Things About '10

Top ten things about 2010

I worked all year at one place. Continuity at its best.

Me being allowed the opportunity to create weekly specials with little to no restraint.

Working with Sean from Michaels Finer Meats and Seafood.

Feeling genuinely appreciated by a few regular guests at Nemo Grille.

Taking individual pride in the ordering, organization and overall well being of a prosperous and well regarded kitchen.

Are you kidding me I have to come up with five more………….

Give my shout out to those who left, and those still around: Halla at Steve, James, Sean, Dean, Alyssa, Lucianio, Brain, Jenny Poo, Ramone and his flower shop, and everyone who got left off the list who wanted to be on it.

We started listening to the Jim Rome show at work from noon till 3. That shit is funny. We laugh out loud sometimes. It is a real stress breaker when you are busting ass on a huge prep list.

New music I found I like, or kinda like the past year: Diabolic, Kid Cudi, MGK, old school Dirtbombs, The Black Keys, DJ Foodstamp, LCD Sound System, King Britt, Mumford&Suns, The Bees, Mayer Haythorn, and seeing the one and only Pearl Jam LIVE with my lil sis.

Keeping up with this blog including chit chats with Salty, being dumped from Rhulmans blog roll, warming up to The Chef’s Widow, and taking interest in everyone included in ClevelanDelicious.

The final top ten thing about 2010 is being alive and moving on to 2011. While it might not have been a great year for many of us the new year allots us the opportunity to turn the page and take the best of ’10 and parlay it into the best we can do in ’11. There is nothing better than looking at a clean slate, wanting the best, and pushing ourselves to do better. For those of you who know me….your laughing your ass off at my optimism, but this is a turn for the better.

Happy New Year to you.

Been slow on the blog thing lately. I make a point of not forcing it. Lots of distractions these days. Hope the best in 11.
