Monday Mornings...

Are rough. Sunday is my only day off each week, and occasionally I still work a few hours when necessary. Yesterday was one of those days. It isn't really that bad, doing a bit of work on the days off, but it contributes to the feeling of working non stop. My work schedule looks a little something like this...

Monday: 5:45am - 2:30pm
Tuesday: 5:45am - 10:00pm
Wednesday: 5:45am - 10:00pm
Thursday: 5:45am - 10:00pm
Friday: 5:45am - 10:00pm
Saturday: 10:00am - 10:00pm

So you can see how working for a few hours on Sunday afternoon would feel. However, this time it was because we are doing our monthly menu change in the fine dining restaurant, so seeing the menu early is never a bad thing. I'm excited to see how everything is executed, because there are duck confit tacos  on the menu, but I know the chef. There's no way in hell it's gonna be that simple.

Today's random recipe idea - Caprese Salad stuffed cherry tomatoes. Cherry tomatoes, use a melon baller to scoop out the guts, then put a small piece of mozzarella inside, followed by basil, and topped with another piece of mozzarella. Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic, sprinkle with sea salt and black pepper.

Also, Osama Bin Laden is apparently dead. (Obligatory)
