Beets Me?

Sorry. It's been a hectic few days and I haven't been able to keep up.  Monday, we completed our last full day of production.  I completed the three dishes, but missed the last window by one minute.  The rest of the week are finals.

Tuesday we had our fabrication final; 1 chicken cut into an airline breast, breast supreme, a frenched leg, a boneless leg and thigh and a thigh with the oyster meat attached.
Also, we did one round fish; scaled, guts removed, two filets and the skin left on. I did really well on both

Then we had our written final. Won't know until tomorrow how I did. Felt good, but missed a few product ID's. Yellow Beets got me.

Tomorrow, we get to cook our chicken, anyway we want, using 2 of the seven Le Cuissons. We have a list of ingredients available to us and with that, make up our own menu, time line, mize en place list and a drawing of our plate.  We must match everything we say we are going to do.  "Really cool Stuff!"  We have 90 minutes to complete our practical and a 15 minute window to present our dish.

Wish me luck!
