Today we cooked it. Ever have one of those days were nothing, I mean nothing goes right. Me too. Today actually. Burnt the Yellow split peas, did not salt the lentel. my braised Ballontine just about cooked till dry, I saved it, but it wasn't my best. I forgot two ingredients for the Vegetable Curry and again plated it into a bowl that was too small.
The only thing I did right was the salsa. I brought that home. I ate the chicken breast and the Ballontine. Actually, my pan sauce came out pretty good as well.
I told the Chef that I got frustrated when the Yellow peas burned. He asked what I did before starting school. I told him I carried water. "Did you ever get frustrated carrying water?". No, I said. I knew how to do that! He said, touche.
French term for today:
Touche - (Too-chey) to hit or wound in fencing or an effective point in an argument.
