Doing a quick blog today. As you all know my typing sucks and is slow. I have to be quick because Theresa wants to go to some plant sales... who knows what we will find, I may actually help plant some of the stuff we buy ... oh, NOT the subject... Well... On to Shelf Chefing! (If interested check out Bear's Shelf Chefing page.)
I have been known to leave most of my dirty dishes laying around after I cook and after we eat because we go to bed early, sometimes this can happen for a few days in a row. Not the best idea when one wants to be a Level 4 Shelf Chef. So I have come up with a plan that can make doing dishes and most other house cleaning projects more fun and easier to get myself to do, even after getting home from a long day at work.
The cleaning man has two friends- loud music and beer! Yep, BEER! (and mixed drinks also work). Crack open a beer to get you started. When you are done with the cleaning, finish the beer. Everything is better with good tunes so crank the music up. I recommend Godsmack, Disturbed or Nonpoint. If you are an older Shelf Chef there is Sammy Hagar, Metalica, Guns & Roses, Twisted Sister, AC/DC, etc... Try to get the work done by the end of the CD. It helps me... just sayen.
Good cleaning. Bear

3. Get two or three pans of hot water from tub. Put soap in one of the tubs and use fork to agitate and make bubbles. Wash dishes in bubble pan, rinse in clean water...
4. ... leave dishes to dry. If applicable, finish beer. Congratulations, you're done. (If you want to earn extra brownie points, put the dishes away when they're dry. For some reason, wives really like that. Just sayen...)
