The past week has been a bit of a blur. I have tried out a few new trades this week and lets just say, I don’t think I was cut out to be a butcher. The cook has not been well and I have a whole new respect for her. That woman is amazing and I am not sure how she stays on top of everything, but she does.
There was a spot of sausage making with Mr Chardy – not very romantic at all. I was left with a big mess to clean up, o the mess. Turns out the sausage making was the easy part. I had a go a tying the sausages. My first attempt was not pretty, sausages were bursting left right and center, second go a bit better, by the third try I had perfected it (never need to do it again thanks very much). Yesterday saw me bagging about a million sausages to freeze along with about 5,000kg of bacon (ok that is an exaggeration) and pumping the corned beef. Yet another brilliant mess to clean up.
Trying to keep these hungry workers fed is no mean feat. 4 batches of slice doesn’t last long so it turns out. I even had to get the Governess in on the action – a mass cookie bake up while I tended to the meat.
Mr Chardy also told me I cooked a “shit breakfast” so evidently that is why he has been doing breakfast (may need to cook a “shit dinner” too and I may get out of that meal)….needless to say he is not in the good books. Should have tossed in the apron there and then. This cooking gig is a bloody thankless one.
So here are some photos from the week that was….. hope you had a great one.
