The Short Week

May 27, 2009 at 7:45 pm

We have no special events this week.  Whew!  The last three have been maddeningly busy.  I spent the Memorial Day weekend detoxing.  I stayed at a friend’s for a few days who has a big house on the Delta.  I slept late, ate the wrong foods and took lots of naps.  By the time work rolled around Tuesday I was refreshed and ready to go at it again.  Good thing.

Apparently our regulars were Jonesing pretty bad for a little love, Mars Hill Cafe style as we were absolutely slammed Tuesday including a family reunion of about 15 dead in the middle of lunch.  Wow, that was quite the run-on sentence.  Now you have a feel for how our lunch shift went – on and on.

Today was much tamer, in fact it would have been straight out boring but our delivery truck was late because of the rain (the same rain keeping the customers away).  As a result I was on my own on the line while sous chef Jay threw the truck.  Then there was the planning meeting where I find out about all of the upcoming events.  Guess what?  Two of them are next week and one the week after.  Down time over.

My special this week is one Jay came up with, the Steakhouse Panini: thin sliced steak sprinkled with Montreal Steak Seasoning, sauteed mushrooms, and A1 Steak Sauce then smothered between 4 ounces of Swiss cheese.  Next week is the Muffin Burger – a 5.33 ounce all beef patty topped with cheddar and Swiss cheese and served on a toasted English Muffin.  How Continental.
