This blog is a place for wives, girlfriends, significant others, and anyone else stuck to a chef to come together and chirp to each other about how to deal with the nonsense that goes along with being the wife of a chef. I was struggling to live with a ghost of a husband who I never saw until I met two other chefs' wives that saved me. It was then that I realized there must be more who need love and support too, right?

Help! Big Pig Problems!
Every year my school holds several fundraisers. And before you run for cover, I'm not asking for any money. I need your creative genius. Since more than half of my class participated in the last fundraiser, I get the chance to participate in a teacher vs. teacher pig race and pig beauty pageant. The winner of each gets $100 to spend on their classroom.
Last year I lost the race and my super Punk Rock Pig was beaten by a pig in a Superman dog t-shirt. My pig had a tri-colored Mohawk, two different earrings, a rock and roll t-shirt with studs and safety pins, and pleather pants. I was SO mad when I didn't win. But I'm going for it again and I want to win that $100! So my big idea is to make an Obama Pig! My students all adore him and I think it will be a big hit. Any ideas on how to decorate my pig to look like our president elect.
If you've got any different ideas for pigs I'll take them too. Some other teachers are doing American Idol pig, Michael Phelps pig, and and Irish pig. What about a High School Musical Pig? I also thought about doing a school pig and putting it in the students' school uniform, but that's not very fun. HELP!
