howdy! my name's Tim. i'm the lead cook at the Country Pride Restarant in the TA truck stop in Sawyer, MI. not a real glamorous job, but hey, truckers gotta eat, too...not to mention the random wayward traveler and family from chicago. i'm 29 years old, and been cooking professionally since i was 16, with the only exception being a 3 year stint in the United States Army as a Bradley Fighting Vehicle crewmember. my turn ons include moonlit walks on the beach, a lovely smile, the smell of race fuel, high caliber firearms and sheep. i've also got a rather twisted sense of humor and, thanks to being deployed to Kuwait for 7 months and Iraq for 6 eating nothing but MREs almost the whole time, i have an uncanny ability to make just about anything taste good. so...hi!

Hi Tim *hugs* glad to see you made it back from your stay in one piece. I like your sense of humor sounds like you'd be a fun guy to work with. Just a curious question are there any girls that work back in the kitchen with you or is it just all guys? I've been wondering that and just wanted an opinion to get my "research" started. Also, What's your favorite food or recipe.

Welcome and I am sorry about those MRE's. The trick is to poor the sauce over the cardboard and eat the whole box.:D

Gunnar, thank you for your service. Since I'm a retired middle school teacher, I appreciate your sense of humor! :D

Hello Tim,

I spent a few months working on a building site in a portakabin, cooking just what the guys wanted. Curries, burgers, anything deep fried. Had a ball. Loved every minute till the site dried up and i was losing money.

Glad you're back home in one piece. I've buds out there and going out too. I'm told good food is a bonus, but few and far between and that its a huge morale boost when you get it.

Wecome to the forum. I think you'll like it here.

What are your plans for the future?

thanks for the warm welcome. you'll have to forgive my punctuation, since i'm posting from my phone and don't have an enter key, nor do i remember the BBC code for a page break. anywho, i can't share my favorite recipe, cuz it was handed down from my mom who got it from her mom etc with strict instructions not to divulge it else i recieve severe bodily injury as a direct result of 4lbs of frozen hamburger being thrown at my head. i have no reason not to believe her, as she's done it to my brother before. knocked him cold out. i will say it involves frying chicken. as for my favorite food, i don't have what you'd call a distinguished palate...i prefer my food deep fried or grilled rare, slathered in hot sauce and mayo. i guess the truck stop is the perfect place for me...

To each there own. My mother loves peanut butter and mayo sandwiches. So odd tastebuds are not a problem

add some blue cheese or gorgonzola to that hot sauce and mayo, then spread it on a nice slice of pepperoni pizza.:lips:
