Hey, I'm back.
Opening New World Bistro Bar is Albany has been a great experience---running two businesses 45 miles apart is a trip (lol).
Finally everything seems to be settled.
Too many people tell me " I'm never there..." whether they are talking about Albany or Saugerties--yet I work more now than I have in years!
So here is my schedule---wondering where i am---now you know!
I work more than you do!!
I am in the office at New World Saugerties Mon-Fri from 8ish til 10 ish doing the basic bill paying, ordering, banking...
Monday-Tuesday I go to Albany/New World Bistro Bar by noon--have manager meetings, order oversight and then I cook on the line.
Wednesday AM I go to the farm stands/markets to get special stuff for Albany, then I h prep all afternoon, working on the weekend specials.
Wednesday night I'm home by 8 and I chill at home.
Thursday morning I go to the markets for New World, then I do the gardening.
Thursday afternoon I prep the weekend specials for New World.
Thursday night I am home by 7 and I chill.
Friday and Saturday I am in the kitchen catering and/or on the line at New World Home Cooking.
Sunday morning I cook the brunch in Saugerties with my youngest son Terry.
Life is actually more fun than it has been in a long time. I feel like a kid.
ROCK AND ROLL!
