Sous Chef Kitchen Etiquette

Our resident Sous Chef, Cheoah, had a discussion with Hu-Dad over proper kitchen etiquette during dinner preparations last night.

I want my attorney at claw.

I want my attorney-at-claw.

Hu-Dad was preparing an Italian Cheese-Stuffed Meatloaf last night, assisted by his ever present Sous Chef, Cheoah. Fresh bread crumbs are required as a critical ingredient, so Hu-Dad took a loaf of bread, chopped up the requisite amount, and left the remainder on the counter to serve with dinner. A certain Sous Chef might have thought the remainder was meant as pay for kitchen work. Hu-Dad looked over and saw a certain red nose absconding with the bread.

The remaining bread - with a missing piece.

Bread retrieved, trimmed, and served with the meal.

The face of no remorse.

    Would Cheoah be willing to share that yummy meatloaf recipe with her fans?

    Mom sez: Awww, and the hu-Dad didn’t even let you have the trimmed off piece? And that IS the most remorseful looking face I’ve seen in a long time. Did you tell him you were truly sorry, Cheoah?

    My defense is that I was doing my duty to make sure that your food is up to culinary standard. I am inclined to say that a bigger second taste might be warranted. 🙂
