Catching Up and a Quesadilla

Lot's to catch you up on. Quick hits will have to suffice for now.

New Gig

Started working at Sam's to put a few sheckles in my pocket. My first shift was in the kitchen.

Yup, first time in a commercial kitchen. And I didn't kill anyone or myself.

The first rush was an 8 item delivery order with several fryer bits and several sandwiches. Greco helped out with the timing of what to start when.

Second rush was three delivery orders, four tables, and a couple things for the folks upstairs. It took me a while, and I damn near swallowed my tongue when I looked up and saw nine tickets.

Start the first two, get the third prepped. Plate the first, move the second, start the third, prep the fourth.

$328 in food sales from 6pm to 2am, average price of $6.50.

Used my one mulligan on a Samburger that didn't get cooked all the way through.

Road Trip

Greco and I took a trip up to Philly. He was picking up a car that a local attorney had purchased from a guy up there. We picked up Six-Pack on the way through Mo-Town. 5 hours up, get the car, eat a cheesesteak, five hours back.

Y'all should stop in at Nino's Pizzarama if you get the chance. Delicious cheese steaks, clean spot, friendly people.

Cheese steak specials with peppers, onions, banana peppers, and sauce. Fresh bread, made to order sandwiches, scads of pizza options including a white pie with garlic, and a pie with rigatoni and sauce under an avalanche of cheese.

And zepoli. Tasty fried dough dusted with sugar. Save room, or take some with you.

Six Pack decided he needed the Wedding Soup too, and the half loaf of bread that came with it.

I brought Big Seester a cheese steak back. She ate it for breakfast at 9am. Atta girl!

Dang Quesadilla

Made this for lunch today.

Half an onion, diced
4 minced cloves of garlic
1 chicken breast, diced
1 can Rotel tomatoes with chilies
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 flour tortillas
1/2 T oregano
salt and pepper
olive oil
green onion for garnish

Saute the onion, garlic, chicken. Add the Rotel. Cook off the liquid. Tortilla, cheese, chicken, cheese, tortilla, bake.

that's a lot of effort for a quesadilla. ;)

ah, the drive from WV to Philly. I recalled it taking like a million hours. And I didn't stop once. Not once! i am road weary just remembering
