The Swedish Chef ~ comical cooking in the kitchen

I've been a HUGE fan of the Muppets ever since I was a kid, and one of my absolute favorite Muppets has to be the Swedish Chef.  (looking back, I guess I was destined to be a foodie :)  To me, there is something so hilarious about watching him wreck havoc in the kitchen, or better yet, his meal ingredients running amok and seeking revenge on him ~ that really tickles my funny bone.  I've recently introduced J to the delightful kitchen mishaps of one of my favorite chefs, and we always get a bellyful of laughs every time we watch him attempt to cook a meal.  Of all the skits this 'master' of the kitchen has done, I think this one ~ Home Cooked Meal ~ has to be my favorite...

No Torkey Stew.  No Piggy Stew.  No Bif Stew.  Heck, even the veggies revolt!  (I love it! :)  After all these years, watching the veggies gang up on him still cracks me up.  Now, I know he didn't have any success with making that Veggie Weggie Stew, but if I ever meet him in person, I'll share a little secret with him.  You know, just cook-to-cook...If you use frozen veggies, they don't fight back ~ problem solved!  heehee  We chefs/cooks need to stick together.  :)

What got me on this Muppet kick you might ask?  Well, I was tickled to find out that our neighbors granddaughter, K, is a Muppethead just like me.  One day she brought over all of her Muppets to show me and I was thrilled to see my old favorite, Swedish Chef was among them.  So, I'd like to say to K ~ Thanks so much for reminding me of the silliness of the Muppets and making me remember what it's like to be a kid again... watching a Muppet puppet kitchen cooking show, with a Swedish Chef, who spends more time fending off the attacks from his ingredients than he does actually cooking.  :)
