I know it’s not Sunday or a demolition derby, but Monday’s are just as exciting!
Well… For me they are!
I’m sure I’ve mentioned this a few times, but I do really, really, really enjoy doing this folks.
I enjoy going to Costco on Monday and Friday mornings. I enjoy doing my shop and taking pictures of everything. I enjoy the different things I see at Costco all the time & the seasonal shift in merchandise. I enjoy the hours of sitting and editing pictures while listening to music or a podcast. I love this part of it where I try and think of something to write to you all. And I love reading and replying to all of your comments!
I just thought I’d share all that with you again & thank you all for being a part of this awesome community, and a part of my life! (and Dexter and Ewok as well, they love all the extra scratches they get every week!)
So let’s not mess around and preview some of the goods shall we?
Actually I won’t, not tonight. It’s Monday folks! A day of sales, and the beginning of another great week!
Complete with Ewok attempting to thwart my work….
And then falling asleep while doing so….
I think he sat like that for at least a few minutes, I was being very still and moving really slow getting the camera up… He’s so cute!
I also made another batch of my Green hot sauce today as well! I’m very excited about it… It’s been almost a year since I made a batch, followed my recipe to the “T” and I’m very pleased!
My favorite sauce… Not to brag folks, but it’s pretty awesome! I made this when I was a line cook 12 years ago??? (maybe 13???) I’m so glad I kind of remembered the recipe for it because it’s awesome! It’s spicy but not too spicy (it doesn’t linger or build) plus it’s got a lot of ginger, garlic and cilantro in it to help balance the flavor out with the savory aspect. And the texture is something I’m proud of, I know that sounds odd however texture/mouthfeel is a big thing with food in general. I didn’t add xantham gum or any other thickeners to this, just cooked it down at various stages until I was happy with it.
I was cooking it with love.
I always joked that the secret ingredient in what I make is “love” but it’s true folks. When I was a cook, I loved doing what I did, I loved every order I made- and made it the way I would want to eat it and see it… I put love into it (As opposed to “I need to make another stupid chicken wrap, grumble grumble grumble”)
Food is visceral, it’s hitting all the senses, you should be pleased by ALL of the aspects about what you’re consuming (especially if you’re in a restaurant paying for it!!!)
This went farther than I expected… But I stand by my words & it translates to every other job too. If you love what you’re doing and put love and passion into it, the results will be amazing!
I know it’s kind of hard to think that the person making your blackened chicken wrap with fries 12 years ago was really wanting to do it 100% and make sure it was perfect, but it’s true.
I’m now blathering….
Indeed Elaine, I’ve gone on too long
it’s bed time. See you in a few days folks!
