Yesterday was a great day. I got into work at the restaurant in Manhattan where I found a home after leaving St. Croix and found that the chef had added an item to the menu that was my reformulation of one of her ingredients: bacon butter with popcorn. We already had several popcorns on the menu – one with lavender & rosemary and one with curry. The bacon butter popcorn replaced the horseradish. That felt pretty good.
Then chef and I “did thyme” together, and we had talked about the possible schedules I could have at the restaurant if I didn’t get a boat job.
Then I checked my phone and found the message I’d been waiting for: one of the boats I had applied to had called. In other words, I may be shipping out again shortly! Stay tuned.
