oh, i am so tired. tired. tired. tired.

i had forgotten, my body had forgotten, what it means to stand for 10 hours, to lift and chop and stir and wash and season and butcher.

but now i know again.

i love my job. i love the people i work with. i love the restaurant. it's beautiful, and it's young, and we are only going to get better from here. i am so happy. and our food is so good. two nights ago i had escarole caesar salad and mozzarella and cherry tomato salad and lettuces with balsamic vinaigrette and chicken liver toast. i was so happy. i think today i get to make panzanella. next week i want to make melon gelato with mint granita'.

yum. yum. yum.
