So as you know, George left the county for the week and left me in charge of the website because he can’t check it, because they don’t have internet in Canada? What? Well, I have been hard at work (really though, actual work) cooking all summer and have logged almost 400 hours since I started back in June cooking, as Garde manger, Grill, and Sautee. Yes, I was promoted to Sautee shortly after being promoted to Grill because the executive chef said that I showed competence and a natural skill for the pressure of being in a kitchen. Huh. Grace under pressure… If I could apply that to my academic life that would be phenomenal.
Cooking has been the biggest part of my summer, with both work and classes, (classes which have now ended), but at home I still recreate the recipes and techniques I learned, even going as far as to take random ingredients from my kitchen and try to make something delicious out of them. Sometimes it works (most of the time it works), and sometimes it’s a disaster. But that’s the fun of learning! Actually, funny story, there are no more ingredients left for cooking in the kitchen that aren’t canned goods or pre-made sauces or things of that sort, because I have used all the fresh ingredients. Oops.
Speaking of making things from scratch, I just finished building my new computer, which is what I am using currently! It was an awesome process, searching for the parts, making sure everything is compatible, ordering them and anxiously awaiting their arrival, the actual construction of the tower, and finally, testing. Which it passed, obviously, with flying colors! Just to give you an idea of what it looks like:Pretty awesome, and that side black panel is actually a glass pane to see the inner workings.
Anyway, I must be off to work soon, another busy night ahead of me and I have things to prepare! So here is where I leave you for today, hopefully another writer will submit a post so you don’t have to listen to me yammer on again. Oh! Alyx is in Italy right now, but they have internet there (but not Canada…) so she and I have been texting. So yes, that is still a thing, for anyone out there who was interested!
I’ll See You,
