i'm a foodie/junkie/plodder, lol.
but once a year i get to be a cook. that is that i cater my department's christmas party, feeding about 125 people or so.
it's funny, but every year i hear from 50 or so of them that i should become a chef. i guess they liked my cooking.
the vice presidents and directors of my department mentioned that last year, that i'll always have a career to fall back on if my current job doesn't work out (which wasn't as funny in the context,
lol). it was meant as both a compliment and joke, to which i replied, "no thanks, being a chef is way too much work. i like how easy i have it now..."
actually, this year i might actually get to be a real chef for a day, with a professional kitchen and a staff. since i work the midnight shift, i wouldn't have time to cater the party. my boss asked if he could pull it off, would i be interested in using the kitchen in the cafeteria in our building, and some of the young guys offered to be my staff so they can learn to cook.
now i just have to work out a pay scale.
