Sweet, Spicy and BIG.

 So Pictured here is some delicious chocolate pancakes. I have always liked chocolate breakfast food. I have wondered how my mom makes her chocolate waffles... because it was an odd recipe.. She used only egg whites for fluff or something. Anyhow, we were bored in the restaraunt and Justin was going to make himself some pancakes and I said, HOW BORING!! He just looked at me and I was like, lets do something fun with them!! (not to mention I was craving chocolate). I went into our dry storage and grabbed some of the cocoa powder and some chocolate chunks that a coffee store uses.. ;). I just mixed it in with the normal pancake batter and wa-la you have chocolate pancakes. Oh be carefule because they burn faster, and they will appear uncooked because of the melted chocolate bits. I assure you, they are cooked. Do not cook too long or your pancake will be dry..

The 2nd thing that I tried that day with pancakes was.. Cherry Coke White Chocolate. They actually tasted pretty good!! It is hard to get the cherry coke flavor so concentrated... I am still working on that part, but they tasted fairly well and Jose liked those ones better than the chocolate.. But he doesn't really like chocolate.

 The next day Jose and I were making pico and he made me try it before he did. I wanted to die!! It was so spicy, my ears got super red, my throat was hurting, I was sweating... and my eyes were all teary!! Jose didn't believe me that it was too hot and so when he tasted it, well... he went and got milk. LOSER. haha. We gave some to a sous chef that we don't like.. he walked off and didn't say anything while I proceded to laugh. Jose ended up putting the pico in many things... he made a quesadilla, to even putting it in a waffle.. I didn't really care for it in the waffle.

After that, I wanted to make rootbeer french toast. Jarome said it kind of tasted like marshmellows.. and well, it kinda did!! I couldn't really taste the root beer either. So, we went and got more rootbeer stuff (notice we don't use soda, something else to get the flavor). I was wondering if the taste would come through better if it sat overnight... sadly, I was not scheduled the next day! I wonder if it is still there.. probably not.

   This is just a huge berry... I don't know if I have ever seen one this big before. It tasted good though!! Maybe I will experiement more at work sometime. I do know that I really love cooking though. Sometimes I wonder why I am in this industry though...

Ps. I went and got a massage and my lower back is really killing me now.. Like.. OUCH. Brittany said that it could hurt for two days. I should just have her give me a massage and me pay her.

 I also had tarot cards read to me the other night! It was very interesting, and you know what... They all made a lot of sense. It sounds odd and I don't care if you believe them or not, but you know, why not? My first card was the "death/re-birth card". I just have some new little ones coming into the family soon. I just can't figure out who needs me. That is the only thing that is really bugging me. No one needs me honestly. I thought that it was interesting how she pointed out that I need to be by the water and be in the water a lot to calm me down!! Looks like I found a way to calm Ms. Katie down. The lady also owns a cool vespa :) I would totally buy it!!! Not even kidding. But, my friend Nicole has an amazing aunt. :) Thanks Nicole!! (We also need to get away according to the tarot cards)


Got Brown on the Mind?

Things to try before you die.

Cereal with Chocolate milk. Don't mock me!! I am serious its good.

Whip cream and chocolate milk with oatmeal. That is good too. :)

Having problems with your guacamole going brown before you get a chip? (not really that fast) Add extra virgin olive oil and mix. That should keep it from going brown for a few days! (also does not affect flavor).

Also is this true 7+7=12?

Look up el Bulli. Amazing what they are doing with food.

So enjoy not having brown guac!


Answers Needed

I have been thinking a lot lately. Mainly all questions. How long do you hold onto someone?
  • How long are you someones friend?
  • Are they really my friend?
  • Am I trying to hard?  
  • When do you quit trying?
  • Is it worth all the effort?
  • Are they?
  • How do they show they care?
  • Do they care about me, like actually care.
Hmmm. I just feel like, I don't really know much. I don't feel like that saying is all accurate "What you put in is what you get out". Yeah right, tell that to all the people rolling over in their graves right now.

I have been trying to not cuss. Haha! Yeah, that is going oh so grand. Buttface is my favorite word right now. I will pretty much tell you that you are a buttface.

One last thing, don't make me angry and than say you love me. Especially when you are trying to be a smart allec and "try" but fail at being funny around others. I will post cooking funny stories later. Right now, I just need those questions answered... :)


Anger+ Water Fight

I have been really angry lately. Everything has just made me so angry, from family, to friends, and especially work! The tilt skillet has been so retarded and has had a mind of its own... This morning while I was squatting to blow.. (haha) to get the pilot light to light the rest of it... it wouldn't light!! (if any of that makes sense). Well i got it to light and than 2 minutes later I walked over there and it had turned off. I had gotten so mad that I punched metal... Great job Katie. Hope no one notices the little dent. haha. I am shocked that I didn't break anything, but I am sure I am going to have the worst old lady authoritis ever!!! Anyhow, so we couldn't use the stupid thing all day, and so I said screw it and through the liquid eggs on the flat top... That was extremely crazy, and I had to move sooo fast!! Than I kept hitting my head on things and dumb boxes kept smashing my fingers so I would punch even more... Well today I got tired of being mad. I opened a door and somehow magically hit my head, Mirasol started laughing and I kinda did a face my Dad does and walked to the back of the kitchen and grabbed the water sprayer thing and started a water fight! haha, It helped both of us who were angry and cool off physically too. Not to mention, laughter does do the body good. haha.

So lesson learned.. I think. To not get angry. 5 days until I am in the most wonderful place, where hopefully I can find peace. Arizona... I think I am going to turn off my phone while I am home. Good idea?

Ps. Someone thought my friend Susan was my Mom. I wanted to laugh out loud super hard, but I just chuckled. It was pretty funny though.. and we were talking really dirty so i am shocked the girl would even consider it! Goofy.

Oh Charming Charlie is pretty cool shin dig yo. haha.



I want to quit school. Super bad. I even told my Mom, but she just told me to keep going. I feel like I don't know anything right now and I am just watching everyone else live their life. Well, I want to live mine too. Just not alone. I'll admit it, I feel like crap.

So anger won at work today. Anger= 1 Katie=0. The servers kept messing up on their orders and after I was done making the order they would come back and tell me something different.. well, lets say something flew across the kitchen and I yelled at them. Yeah... Matt just laughed and Abdellah just continued to tease me. He finds it amazingly humorous on his end. Turkey.

So I love riding my new bike and I found it really relazxing today. I also noticed it clears my mind. I was able to stop thinking about friends and just think about me. I stand 100% by my family and subjects that we have talked about when it comes to friends. I should have listened to them from the beginning.

Uhh here is a potentially funny story.. well I laughed. I went to dinner and the movies with some amazing friends Susan and Nicole (even though Nicole was supposed to be on a date...) Anyhow, we got a pint of ice cream, YUM. Dinner was freaking amazing and hit the spot... ha. Anyhow so we get to the movies and I am totally enjoying my ice cream, right? Well my stomach than starts talking crazy talk, and I look at Susan and am like, dude I don't feel so hot. So before the movie started I ran to the bathroom, and let it all go! Here is the embarrassing part... haha the lady in the next stall farted loud (where as I thought mine were quiet) and than the girl next to me leaves her stall and LOUDLY tells her friends about whats going on in my stall... I patiently waited it out till I thought that they were gone... well no. I walked out to wash my hands and the girls were standing there. Don't worry, I did not make any eye contact! haha. Than about half way through the movie someone farted loud in their chair and Susan and I of course bursted out laughing... And of course, Becky was wondering if one of us had farted. haha. Good times. Than we went back to Susans and watched something Tuscany? Good movie.

My friend at work also told me a funny story about what she did with a coke bottle while driving.. apparently she drives really slow or fast if someone is hogging her tail... anyhow she kept doing it to this guy and when the guy drove in the lane next to her... well guess what? She threw the coke bottle. haha. I about died from laughter picturing her throwing something out her window.

Oh Ps. I am going on a mission because I have the opportunity to serve. Its official. Time to start preparing and getting on the more straight path... For it is not my will that is important. I am excited for next year already... Even though I can't wait for next week. Bleh.


Kick in your Pants

Want a laugh? K, continue to read.

A day at work.

These are comments made to me. Names will be changed.

"if you're going to be my wife you need to eat jalapenos" I just laughed in his direction (thinking to self, dude you're old!)

"Ruff, as he grabs my leg" I always get scared when Joey barks like a dog. haha.

"who does he think he is touching my women?" (Im your women since when?)

"Don't let him touch those, they are mine!" hahaha, Joey and I doing Karate.

(K this name is for real) Brahim was talking super fast and laughing and out came the drool... yep right into the gumbo! hahaha. I laughed at him. So, needed new soup for the day. (gumbo was disgusting anyhow. bleh)

"what are you smoking?" ( I always say the special blend of Katie Mae Moses haha)

"you are so strong" (me eh, whatever)

"I told the servers you could beat them up and to be nice to you" The servers are now scared of me and really think that I can hurt them... haha. Jeez.

"You are gonna be a freak!" ( I looked at him in surprise until I really found out what that meant haha)

Than throughout the day they always poke, pinch and grab/ tickle my sides as I die from laughter.. silly boys. haha.

Somehow we always get back to the subject of big boobs, Mexican drinks, what my tattoo will be of, if they can get me to drink alcohol... We are just a random group of people in the kitchen... Wish people could witness it some days!!

Oh my favorite today was when Johnny (fake name) walked past me and was like check out that beautiful girl working the salad station!" I smirked but I didn't know what to say. haha.

The best thing to clean a white board with is a sterno. FYI. (oh not lit of course. use the gel.)


Frozen Floor

That's right! Someone was so kind to mop our freezer floor for us... Wait, freezer floor? Yes, that is correct!! I would openly like to thank them for making me fall on my butt when I went into the freezer, so thank you kind soul! (total hint of sarcasm...) Not to mention that other coworkers had forgotten that I told them to watch out and they slid around in the freezer trying to get items. Reluctanly ( Smirky face), while trying to avoid the freezer (this is bad) but I just threw my box of texas toast (20 loaves) i the freezer and watched it slide. Better than hurting myself I say!

The boys at work well, they are just goofy I would say? They think that its funny to smash pans together to make it super loud by me, or poke me in the sides.. lately they have been trying to whip me so when I wash my hands I now stand with my butt to the wall... haha. Today it got busy at work and I had to keep running around the kitchen. It doesn't bother me too much. Anyhow, I was running with a box of diced potatos (sorry who have eaten at Sheraton, we don't use fresh) haha, and Anastasio said, "yaaaa Katie shake that butt!" I turned around and said, "Hey no looking papa!" Everyone in the kitchen laughed and of course the boys just stared at my butt as I ran. haha.

Work is interesting and I wish that I could have one of my friends there just so they could really experience a day.

Please cross your fingers that school and moving home works out... Please!! Thanks :)
