View Full Version : Survived one more Mother's Day!
05-14-2012, 12:36 AM
Man, every year a month or two before Easter & Mother's Day I swear to myself that I'm gonna get out of this racket and get a grown up job...but it never seems to happen!:p:rolleyes: Of course, once I get past E & MD it's smooth sailing til late fall, so there's that. Wound up working 11 am to 11 pm; my feet are sore but the whole day was OT, so I ain't complaining. It went pretty well, especially the brunch portion. We did NY strip steaks instead of prime which ended up working very well; we had about 25 at a time in the circulator set @ 130 F, just took them out and seared them on the broiler to whatever temp. The feedback was excellent with all the customers being really happy.
Of course, I'm sure that around March of next year I'll be saying it again...;)

My wife & I stayed home and had Shrimp dinners delivered!
Tasty and my wife was happy cause there were no dishes or clean up to do.
At the last moment she wanted to go out to eat and I said No WAY! Not on a crazy day like MD. So I had the local Deli deliver.

Nothing copious amounts of red wine cannot cure when you get home....

the house chicken taco bowl was a big hit here.

Survived mine as well, along with the 150 hours of work that surrounded it. Strangely, Mother's day was my shortest shift the last month.
