i wake up starving on saturdays and sundays after long nights of kitchen stress. i don’t often have the energy to cook more, but then there are times when i’m just to interested in a killer breakfast and know that no restaurant in town will live up to my high breakfast standard. what could be better than this spread right here, bacon, eggs, cheese grits, homemade biscuit and a glass of florida OJ? oh, and there’s the sweetwater coffee too. what could be better? hmmm. i’ll have to get back to you on that one.
the weekend was busy and also the first weekend that our new system actually worked. in the new ticket system in house orders get bumped more than ever before, and call in to-go orders get somewhat shafted. if you want a pie on the weekend, you need to call us 2 hours in advance because we are doing less to-go pies, giving longer times between to-go pies, so we can get food to the folks who have been waiting for a table. if you come in and get a to-go pie, we call it to-go waiting pies (generally folks who will eat out back and watch the band), you’ll wait a bit longer too now, as we are giving even more priority to in house orders. you see, when folks have to wait between one and two hours for a table, they should get their food in 45 minutes or less. once we started seeing in house orders taking an hour or more, i realized that something had to give, and the pizzas going in boxes are the ones that gave. the system actually worked brilliantly this past weekend for the first time, and in house food got to the tables quicker than ever. every day poses new challenges for us and this is the latest hurdle we have sprinted over. it’s good news for all you die hard fans who come in and wait for a table. we’re doing everything we can first and foremost for you people. if you’re at home on the computer or in front of the tube, better think ahead and bear with us, you’ve been up there waiting before, you know it can be a struggle. i’m not gonna lie and tell you that from now on all the food is going to be fast and no one will suffer, i’ll leave that to the politicians. no, i’m telling it like it is. if you get it in a box, it’s going to take longer, sorry.
and now for the what could be worse section of the blog. how bout them gators? because the games often get played on saturday nights, i rarely get to see them. but when the occasional 12:30 game happens, i am on it. so, there i was, excited as could be… and then to have a close game, that’s always more exciting… and then it was down to the last play… and there’s my wife, who NEVER watches football but has decided to watch with me and root for the rebels because, well, she’s a rebel i guess… and then the choke… what could be worse? … like i said before, you can’t win them all.
i tell you what could even be worse than that, how about this $700 billion bailout of wall street… how about this war… how about all the bad news going on…??
but i don;t want to bring you down so i’ll try to leave you on a happy note… scroll back up to that photo and take a gander at my dream breakfast… think about it, those cheese grits are perfect.
