I live in Morro Bay, California, about 1/2 a mile from the beach, 20 minutes from San Luis Obispo, California. It's just my husband, Paul, our little Schnoodle, Zenqi and me. Paul and I cook as much as possible together. He calls himself my "soux chef," and does an excellent job of all the chopping, preparing, veggie & meat washing & measuring. I select the recipes, coordinate the menu, do the shopping, concentrating, cooking, adjusting of recipes, & plating. We make a great team & have a lot of fun. Not to mention, we have some excellent meals & wine. The only thing we don't have down very well is the timing, so we end up eating VERY late at night sometimes. Oh well, maybe some day we'll perfect that part. In the meantime, we'll enjoy the process. This is what we do since we're not into TV (except for Gray's Anatomy, of course), really, and we don't have kids.
