Sunshine up to way past sundown.
It is now time to take off the chef coat, apron and pass out in my cozy nest. The kitchen is clean, floor is being vacuumed by the robot and the island is already seeing the reset for the next class.
Hats off to restaurant owners who do this day in and day out all day long. I just cannot imagine that type of schedule. My cooking passion is satisfied late this evening and I'm beyond grateful for the women that showed up for this evening's Italian night in at FPK.
I don't always listen to the conversations and chatter that take place around the island. I'm typically going in circles doing behind the scenes things and focused on what needs to be done to make this meal happen in a timely matter amongst the organized chaos. There is a lot going on when you are preparing a meal from scratch, start to finish.
Once in a while I'll hear a phrase or sentence that was said out loud throughout the evening.
These two stuck with me this evening.
