Flash in the Pan: Parboiled

chef-2Janice started her new job as a Chef’s assistant at a nearby local restaurant.
One of her many duties is to chop a fresh batch of vegetables each morning for the Chef for his daily menu and the rest to later be parboiled.
One day as she was working on this task, the Chef was in a bit of a hurry and asked her if she was done yet.
“No, not just yet,” she replied to him, feeling a bit inadequate for having not yet been done, “but I will be soon.”
“That’s quite alright, my dear,” he says with a pleasant smile, and continued tending to his task at hand while he waited for her to finish.
Finally she was done and brought the fresh vegetables to him, and asked, “Do you want me to add these vegetables to the pot of brains, or in the pot of intestines?”

This is part of the M3 Flash in the Pan word challenge.
Challenged word is parboil with a word limit of 150 words.

  2. Sounds like a nice family place to eat at.

  8. I think I’ll take the vegetarian option Deb, … In fact I’ll just chew on this un-cooked carrot!! 😉 … You’ve got quite a talent for tale-telling my friend, and rising well to the flash in the pan challenge… Great read…. hugs aplenty from a carrot chomping, bran eating, medicine swilling, woolly headed. xPenx

    • I usually prefer veggies most often too. They seem to be much easier to digest. I imagine the veggies would be over the rest of the Chef’s menu too. 🙂

      I do hope your beginning to feel a little better each day, Pen. One day, you will wake up and feel so much better….Hot tea for you, my friend!

  9. !!!! I think I’ll have to agree with Binky!!!!
    Well, written, Deb!

    • Lol…I understand, Marina. Maybe we ought to just stick to our chocolates. 🙂

  10. Could you possibly provide the name of this, err, fine dinning establishment? One I think will need to be on my list of ones to avoid!

  11. With all do respect, Deb, I’m avoiding your restaurant, too! 🙂 Great story and good thing tonight’s not spaghetti night! 🙂 Sending hugs! xxx
