In 2003 I worked as the cook on my Aunt Abie’s ranch in Pinedale, Wyoming. Planning and cooking 3 meals a day for about 30 people (without a dishwasher!) taught me so much about cooking and kitchen management.
My favorite time of day on the ranch was 6am when I would share the kitchen with Abie and my cousin Sally. We would watch the sunrise over the mountains while frying up more bacon and eggs that you would believe. It was the calm before the storm when the hungry masses would arrive. After I served breakfast and I’d had many cups of coffee, I would throw on some music or an audio book and get to work on cleanup and lunch prep. It was a fabulous routine!
