Working with women that have no longing, calling or spark in food service is challenging at best. I have been privy to more drama in the last four years, then I ever experienced in my culinary life. I must admit, I do not have the skills to read a woman. Is that insane or what? Because I am a woman!! I gave birth to two sons. My first son, who is 15, I did work on the hot line, until I was 7 1/2 months pregnant, then bed-rest. A little personal note on Paige, I am only 5' 1", so you can imagine that reaching for the french onion crocks was a challenge. My second son, gladly I was a bit more seasoned at working pregnant and the hot-line racket. I was 8 1/2 months before I had to go on the !@#$^@*&&%$## bed rest.

Guess what? I have a secretive secret you can share with your friends. I have done what you have done, and I did it in Alaska. I did it during a time, that I was trying to develop my compassion and mercy, because in the end you WILL see these people on the way down. Leave the drama to the soap operas, they are seasoned at it, strive to be the best that you can be (finding a job, that makes you happy). The rest really, if we want to get to the heart of it takes care of itself.
2 pieces of really cool bread (you pick it, only you know) toasted
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
3 healthy slices of ripe avocado, it works out to be 1/3 of 1 avocado
2 slices of a really great tomato, vine ripes are great, ones from your garden even better
2 healthy leaves of the lettuce of your choice, in this case I used romaine
5 slices of bacon, the thicker the better, applewood smoked and well we hit royal status
Fry the bacon until crispy, save the grease, because I fondly refer to it as liquid gold, you can use it in the place of any fat, i.e cooking pork chops, or frying home fries. Slice your tomatoes and avocados and set aside. Clean your lettuce and get it ready for greatness. Toast your bread, maybe buy it a corsage, but it all together and you have your own gastronomical prom. I usually serve it with Tomato cheddar soup and super cool mini saltine crackers. Don't forget some local shredded cheddar to top your soup. The BEST hands down.
