Testing Testing 1-2
Well, I guess this is when I officially start talking about Edgar.
I feel exactly like those little rabbits on the plate: I run and I run and I run and I wish I could only focus on my restaurant. But there are little bushes in the way, rabbit holes, traps I try not to get stuck in too long. I have to take some detours, but soon the road will be straight - I am just so anxious to get on with this. Someone recently told me that a restaurant is a monster that eats your life. Thanks Howie, I am looking forward to this.
There is a lot of paperwork involved. Phone calls. Emails. All of which I have to do before or after work... Then I fall asleep on the living room carpet. I do.
I started testing food last night.
As I am writing this, I am experiencing a sugar overload.
It is sticky bun test morning. With lemon zest? Butterscotch sauce? Vanilla? Cooked in cupcake tins or one big baking dish?
(the lemony sauce is winning, baking dish, needs more cinnamon, will incorporate pecans, no raisins...)
