I'm a Proud Mom!!

My daughter, Jordana, is the sous chef at Republic Chop House in downtown Green Bay, WI and her friend Abbey is the executive chef at the restaurant. They are featured in the January 2010 issue of You Magazine which is a local publication from The Green Bay Press Gazette newspaper. They are special chefs because the two head honchos of this upscale restaurant are both female. The restaurant business can be a "old boy's club" according to Jordana so these two talented young women in these positions rock!!! The restaurant has a website www.republicchophouse.com to get more info. Girls Rule Boys Drool!!!!!!

Take 5 Birthday Cake

On Sunday my family met in Green Bay WI to celebrate my birthday which is actually Tuesday. My daughter, Jordana, the chef, baked me this awesome cake based on the candy bar Take 5. It had chocolate, peanuts, peanut butter, caramel and pretzels. I call it Take 5 pounds to each hip!! It was good but rich. We had the run of the restaurant, Republic Chop House, since they're closed on Sunday. It was nice to get together with my family. We all used to live in Appleton WI but my parents are the only ones left there.
