Yesterday was the GM's birthday and we managed to pull off a surprise party. At our house no less. We almost never have people at our house.
Her family and friends came over and decorated the place while we were at work and I had one of our dishwashers bring food to the car while the GM was distracted training a new waiter.
She does so much for so many people with true care and thoughtfulness. It was gratifying seeing the people here and realizing what a difference she has made in all of our lives. I love her wholeheartedly.
Among the food was to be the Balymoral Dessert Biscuits from Hieland Foodie but this was one of those times when I knew a recipe would be shite (as I imagine they still say in Scotland) but I tried it anyway. The biscuit is really a cracker, meant to go with cheese, but the dough contains no salt. Completely flavorless. A thin round of cardboard could be used to scrape up a serving of cheese with as much success.
I'm now on to the "Jimtown Store Cookbook", so far, so good. Haven't tried a recipe yet. I usually wait until I'm done with the book.
Memorial Day weekend is approaching and we need to do some tinkering with the menu. Usually before a three day weekend isn't the time but our crew is well-seasoned.
I'll be getting some live spot prawns for the weekend for specials. The fish guy is trying a little harder.
