A New Arrival

The other day some of the worker’s headed to Linda Downs (owned by the same people) to muster. They were gone overnight leaving a few of us behind to enjoy the peace and quiet. It made dinner time a breeze with less mouths to feed which for me meant less time in the kitchen. When they came back from Linda they had a new addition to add to the Tobermorey family.

A donkey.

It is yet to be officially named but there is all kinds of crazy names being thrown around. Names like Linda, Jenny, Donkey, Donkett, Georgina, May and god knows what else. I have been calling it Donkey for lack of a better name. Even though it is female I’m sure it won’t mind for now.

The New Arrival – The Donkey with No Name

Other than our new arrival we are settling in really well and are so glad we made the decision to come here and give it a go. It is starting to feel like home and everyone is really easy to get along with. I find most of my day doesn’t even feel like work and the early mornings aren’t bothering me that much. I am not normally a morning person so for me that is a big thing.

I thought to finish off today’s post I would list some of the food I have serving for the masses here on the station to tease your  taste buds. I am open to ideas and suggestions so feel free to comment with your feedback.

  1. What about Lasagne, Chicken pasta bake, Chicken casserole, Pizza, and for desert Baked Cheesecake, Apple Pie or Apple Sponge, yum I’m getting hungry and I;ve a home made apple pie / shortcake in the fridge for dessert tonight. Good Luck!

  2. Thank you so much for directing me here. This helped so much. I’m hoping to pick up the same kind of work when we are on the road as i am already a road house cook. Making meals for 30 people in one sitting would be the hard bit though I think. What did they do for lunches?
