Menu change is happening at the restaurant.

One of the new items is a ham and gruyere sandwich on a baguette. The bread is toasted and then we spread herb mustard on one side and onion jam on the other.
It comes with fries and pickled veggies.

...I dunno about fancy. It just mean they're showing a bunch of recent horror movies from over the world and there's a market. These things are just called festivals.

So I made a quick thing of seafood for dinner and it's pretty good.

Ingredients:
- a tray of frozen mixed seafoods
- leek, chopped
- juice squeezed out of half a lemon
- white wine for cooking
- cream
- semi-instant pad thai noodles
- salt, pepper, thyme
- butter

Preparation:
- set aside a bowl and rehydrate the semi-instant pad thai noodles with hot water in it as you go. Once they're done, strain them
- toss some butter into a frying pan, add leek, cook stirring until it softens nicely
- add frozen seafood tray contents, add herbs and spices, cook stirring on low heat for a bit, then add a sensible amount of white cooking wine and lemon juice and turn the heat back up
- cook until the wine is reduced somewhat and the seafood is cooked just right - already actually cooked, but not yet rubbery
- reduce the heat again, and add the cream. Stir lightly until the liquids in your pan combine into a uniform sauce
- toss in the pad thai noodles, mix everything well, serve. Ideally in something that's actually presentable instead of in a random blue plastic bowl you have lying around

The dish is pretty quick and easy if you have the ingredients around, and the "unusual" ones in it (the noodles and the seafood mix) are pretty good for long term storage so you can pick them up and keep them for whenever. The flavour is very nice, too, and the pad thai noodles do a good job at carrying it. All in all I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

I wasn't following a recipe, just went "hey I have this frozen seafood mix, why don't I make something with it" and this is what I ended up with, so I'm not surprised. It's vaguely inspired by moules mariniere, but I didn't have any parsley on hand. Thinking on it, adding some could probably work nicely though.

No one should give a single shit about these people, past the food waste.
Giving them attention is what they want and why shit like this continues.

I have been day drinking so take my cornbread recipe and have a better day.

320g cornmeal
3g baking soda
3g salt
1 large egg
296ml buttermilk
84ml  unsalted butter, melted

Preheat oven to 400F (204C)
Get a baking dish, I use a cast iron skillet but anything will work, and allow it to heat up in the oven with a small amount of oil/fat (around  14ml)
In one bowl mix the dry items and in another mix the wets.
Slowly add the wets to the drys mixing until well incorporated.
Add the batter to the hot skillet and bake for 20 minutes or until a cake tester/toothpick comes out clean.

Let rest/cool for 30 minutes.

The concierge has almost a 200% turnover.

Most of the money that my location makes is being used to prop up the sister locations because COVID demolished them.  

Our average tenure is 2 years for cooks.

The thing is that we survive on the back of externships so it is not like staffing cooks will ever be an issue.
Two years here gets you a pedigree for other places.

I might have to start looking because the housing market here is just not sustainable.

Or maybe I should invest in that cooking vtuber thing.

I mean I will never make it as big as Giri but it has to pay better than 30K a year.
