I worked last night at the Rock Cafe. The new kitchen is awesome, but I’m not sure the kitchen at the Big Texan would be big enough to keep up with the kind of crowds we were dealing with from about 5:30 p.m. on. It was nuts. We knew it would be, but I think it exceeded everybody’s expectations.
I was off today, but I sent Dawn a text a little while ago to ask if she needed me to come in tomorrow after church. She said there was no point, because the crowds were so enormous today that she’s running out of everything, so she’s going to close at 3 p.m. tomorrow.
I like working in the kitchen — it’s fun to learn how to make stuff like jaegerschnitzel and bread pudding and chicken-fried steak, and flipping burgers definitely makes me feel like a kid again — but I’m kind of glad to be off tomorrow. I have a bunch of stuff I need to do, and I just didn’t have the energy to do any of it today. I slept in this morning, went out to lunch with Ron, picked up a new pair of Crocs, took a nap, and then went out for a snow cone around dinner time. Other than brushing the dogs, I accomplished nothing today. If it weren’t so hot out, I’d bake some new potatoes and onions, but I can’t bring myself to heat up the kitchen that much.
Hope your day was more productive than mine.
