passed my mystery box challenge and being recommended for the Chef position...I would have wrote to you guys sooner but had a pretty woman here all weekend and got *ahem* distracted.
the list of ingredients in my box was pretty average:
needed to make an appetizer, a salad and a main entree
App- made a twice baked potato with feta and Greek olives - looked good but the flavor was a bit stronger then I had hoped but the manager liked it.
Salad- made a chicken spinach salad- used up the chicken, made candied walnuts, used craisins, shredded carrots and made a red wine vinaigrette for it...no brainer
for the main I did a wild rice pilaf, roasted veg and grilled salmon with a jalapeno honey mustard aioli. - i think it was the aioli that made the game, he freaked out over the salmon and ate it all.
basically this week I am "Chef" "Line Cook" "Cater Chef" and kitchen staff wrangler as I have only one guy that can use a grill with any competence and the rest can barely chop an onion. Doing ok so far but only two days in and this week suddenly looks like it's stretching away into the distance like an infinity edge pool.
hope you all have a great week.
