i don’t know if i should be embarrassed or flattered, but i am officially a regular at tender greens (http://www.tendergreensfood.com/). at first, i thought the cashier made a lucky guess when he knew my name (i even asked if my name was in the computer system). but let’s just state the obvious – i go there waaaay too much. the cashier even said “hi michelle” when i walked in the door today. i guess it’s a little embarrassing, but not embarrassing enough to stop me from ordering three things. oink oink, right?
but this gets me to my point: i am a foodie (which basically means i am a very picky pig). i don’t know if it’s because my job is stressful or because i’ve been having such a hard time finding a good wedding caterer, but i am more convinced than ever to become a caterer. everyone’s been telling me how hard it is to start a business and how much it sucks to serve food to other people, blah blah blah. but i must disagree. making food for others is the best feeling ever! and i’m sure it would feel even better to get paid to do it…
there are very few things that i genuinely love to do (and even less things that i’m good at). besides rearranging furniture, quoting movies, and making things out of paper, i got nothing! but i did major in art… and i do love cooking… and food is just a work of art, right? delicious little sculptures? everyone thinks i’m crazy when i say this, but i really wish i could cater our wedding. i know what you’re gonna say: “how could you possibly do that? are you gonna cut the bruschetta tomatoes in your wedding dress on the morning of your wedding?” my answer: “hell yes.” i mean, i’m not actually going to cater my own wedding, but how impressed would you be if i pulled it off?
just to prove how serious i am about this whole career change, here are some appetizers i’ve made in the past for practice!
