Mike, I have read your post many times and now wish to comment on it.
The last time I dined at Dennyís was in the mid 80ís and the eggs benedict were overdone and management would not do anything about them.
The last time I played bingo was while stationed in Pakistan with the MAAG in the early 60ís.
My prescriptions are all generic and I get them for a $4 co-pay.
Just cooked an IBCA contest against 79 other teams and got one walk for chicken. Had issues with my FEC100 at 4am and actually had a neighbor offer the use of one of his cookers if necessary. Was able to patch up the unit and baby set it for the next 10 hours. Had a great time with the jello shots, swapping lies, etc. with the younger generation and held my own and actually, several of them bit the dust.
My chicken, which I worked on for IBCA contests, has done quite well for the last few years and it is a very sweet and hot finish type candy glaze. It set your lips on fire but is very pleasing.
I spend more on product than I do on contest costs and my expectation is to have fun. I worked this one as a single cook as someone (my wife) had to run the restaurant. This included setup, cook, turn in, clean up, tear down and travel. If it stops being fun, then Iíll quit, until then I enjoy being a spoiler to the hot shots and love proving that the older (70) generation can still do it.
As far as my product from this weekend, which I donít, wonít eat, I called my head cook and gave it to her for her kids, they eat well when I do contests. The reason I donít give it to my own kids, they have had so much I would be disowned for even suggesting it now.
Screw the seniors idea, let the younger ones keep up.
