I gave my notice to Chapter 8 last week. I will be cooking there until Nov. 19th. I am going off on my own and will be doing private parties and catering. I looked into leasing a place on my own, but there are too many 'grown-up' decisions to make and I just don't feel like dealing with them yet. I do know that my Sallie Mae Student Loan is up to 7% (Bloody Hell) and that damn thing is killing me slowly...so, I am off to try and make more money...we'll see how far I get!!
I've been keeping myself busy though. My friends from Itlay sent me a bottle of Mostarda (mustard essence, the real stuff too...) and I have been playing with the idea of supplying some local cheese shops and maybe even some restaurants with Mostarda of Quince for now, and maybe other ingredients later.
