"Beautiful, honey...and so is that platter."
Said to me by the Sous Chef regarding well, me (LOL) and the fruit platters he asked me to make for him.
Today was fun. I gave my 2 weeks notice to the Executive Chef and thanked him for the opportunity to work with with. I explained that I realized that I want to be a caterer and the country club was more in line with that goal.
He shook my hand, and later came in the back kitchen to talk to me. He said that he thinks I'll really do well there and that he can completely see me being a caterer or banquet chef. Then he said,
"I've seen the platters you do for us here, and they are beautiful...you'll really like it there."
So, that made me feel wonderful. I always hate telling someone I no longer wish to work for them. I feel so bad.
Later, the Sous Chef came back and asked me to do 3 fruit platters because he "Likes my style". LOL! I ended up doing 2 other platters by the end of the night too. It was a pleasant night, overall and I got to do what I love-making food look pretty!
And, I'm sure it helped that while at work I received:
2 bear hugs from semi-cute men
1 back rub
and though this sounds gross, 1 finger stuck in my ear. I liked it because it was teasing and teasing means that someone likes you enough to play around.
Oh yeah, and firecrotch wasn't there tonight yelling at everyone and complaining-so that helped.
