So I just cooked breakfast on a weekday for the first time in months. Scrambled eggs and ground sausage topped with salsa and crema and an orange on the side. Was bretty good.
Weekday breakfasts are usually fast with little effort. Yoghurt with granola and fruit, cereal with fruit, blueberry bran muffins, fruit with peanut butter or trail mix, or plain coffee. Cooking anything packed with brotein takes too damn long unless you have something like pic related. But even then there's the cleanup, so hot breakfasts stay reserved to weekends.
I want to start prepping things at night to heat before work. Probably gonna freeze an egg and sausage bowl and see how it eats in a day or two. Does anybody else do this? Give me your best make-ahead breakfasts, /ck/.

So I went to a hibachi place for the very first time. The table was me, my wife, and 8 other strangers. Drinks get ordered, everyone orders entrees etc. Guy makes the fried rice first, bowls it out everyone.
Then he starts doing the protein. Some have fish, some chicken, steak, shrimp scallops. Using the same knife and spatula. First he's flipping the raw fish, then touching the steak, back to raw shrimp, raw scallops, back to steak, etc. Every once in awhile he set his spatula and knife directly on the griddle for a few seconds i guess to "disinfect" it.
Is that the way it's supposed to be or did the guy almost kill us?

A question to anyone who works in food service...
Has anyone else noticed that the word "allergy" is quickly starting to be redefined as "I don't really like"...
As in, customers who are "allergic" to something they don't like.
Example: Today I had a costumer who ordered a sandwich, with a note that they had a "onion allergy"...so naturally the fries that went with the sandwich went out unseasoned, as my restaurant's fry seasoning contains onion powder. They were sent back because they weren't seasoned. When I told the server that they weren't seasoned because of the onion powder, they went to the table and were told by the customer the seasoning was ok they "just don't like actual onion."
This pisses me off because it's insulting to people with actual allergies. You think people with peanut allergies so bad they can't be near peanut butter wouldn't love to just "not like" peanuts?
Anyway, sorry, but I'm disturbed by this trend...hell I had one customer tell a server they were allergic to "herbs" today. When asked what herbs, they said "any herbs"...I mean, what the fuck does that mean?

Yesterday I was in a part of the city I am unfamiliar with when I realized there was a Wendy's nearby. It was 2 pm and I hadn't eaten lunch yet and was really looking forward to trying their new chipotle sandwiches.
I took a wrong turn but ended up seeing a Five Guys, which I have never been to. As a rule, I usually avoid fast food restaurants without drive throughs. I noticed a drive through sign as I approached, but was disappointed to see it was for another restaurant nearby.
Going to Five Guys reaffirmed my distaste for going inside restaurants to order. My biggest issue was the disorganized menu. I was the only one in line and the cashier was staring at me and actually said "next please" after only a few minutes.
I told him that I wanted a hamburger and fries. He asked what kind of hamburger and I ended up saying a bacon cheeseburger because I didn't know how to respond. He repeated the question again and after I became flustered he said, "single, double, or triple?".
He also said, "what kind of fries?" and I hesitated for 10 seconds and then said "French fries". He laughed aloud directly at me and said "plain or Cajun". I got Cajun to end the ordeal.
Right away I was feeling a bit awkward so I got my own ketchup using the ketchup pump, which was somewhat novel. I got three cups and several napkins and the server said something about me not needing so many napkins if I didn't have so much ketchup. I didn't say anything but it was the beginning of a bad wait.
