Hello five blog readers!
Things have been quite busy for me therefore I must ask you to forgive the long pause between posts.
The job hunt has begun. I have sent my resumes to various restaurants in the city. So far I received a few nibbles. I have not abandoned whole freelance writing. I emailed the article to Yoga Cat to help me tailor it to be more of a feature. I shall not leave no stone unturned. Also I am very lucky to have 11 years experience in a professional field and a severance package. One of my New Year’s Resolution is stop acting so pessimistic.
One thing that I must make into a positive situation is the fact that in two months my current job will be no more. I have put out the resumes to area restaurants, but I am willing to commute as far as Delaware, King of Prussia, PA, and Southern New Jersey. Also because of my servance package I have opportunity to be more choosey meaning no Cracker Barrel or Dennys.
Another very nice thing that happened during the week is that I received a request to make a Breakfast Basket.
The basket contained Budapest coffee cakes (baked in a blossom tin), elephant ears, mini muffins (chocolate, chocolate chip, corn), regular sized blueberrry muffins, and scones (chocolate chip and dried cranberry). The hostess was really pleased with what she received and I made a nice profit.
Once again on Restaurant Station I made it through without a scolding. If I can do again next week it will be amazing. I would take pictures of the desserts, but we are so busy in the kitchen it is impossible to do so. It difficult to do three and more things at once while taking pictures. Also that can be annoying.
Next term I have torts and wedding cakes. My idea is to take a picture of a wedding dress and base my design of a cake off of that. One student took a china pattern to design their cake. Very nice. NO GIANT BOWS AS THE CAKE TOPPER! I hate that, but if anyone pays me enough to do that….
