DINNER 123: Wednesday, May 3, 2006
An unexpected change of plans tonight… I was scheduled toÂ have GARDE MANGER class at Cincinnati State this evening. When I arrived at the school’s kitchen, it was apparent that our food cart — the requisitioned food items that we’re to use in the class — had not arrived.Â Chef arrived shortly after and made a few calls only to find out that the employees in receiving had already left for the evening so there was no hope of getting our food items.
We did the best we could with what we had on hand, taking the time to create ‘presentation plates’ of our cold soups (I made a Tomato Basil soup) for chef to evaluate and taste. However, we were still done with everything before 6:00. So I headed home as quickly as I could because I knew Wendy had gotten her hair bleached for LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS, the show she’s doing for Falcon Theater, which opens this Friday and I wanted to see what it looked like. While it’s a big change, she’s still super-gorgeous. She invited me to attend rehearsal this evening, so I went with her. Dinner was a visit to the drive-through at Wendy’s for chicken nuggets and fries.
The rehearsal went well and I think their show is going to be very good.
