Mission figs started appearing at our co-op, so I think this week’s OnMilwaukee recipe is going to be a pan pizza with black mission figs, bacon, goat cheese and arugula.
Also, the truck got her first ride on the Washington Island ferry.

I’ve got so much meat from that salmon, I think the next week’s projects are going to consist of a lot of salmon curing.

This week’s project: salmon pastrami
I replied to HR explaining the situation, but I’m worried that some arbitrary technicality is going to hurt my chances for this job. This whole Checkster thing is frustrating, because it sends email that looks exactly like spam to the people I would like to give me a good reference.
So, this tech school is using a service called Checkster to solicit references through email. I just got an email from Human Resources that I haven’t listed enough Supervisors in my references (I need 3).
All of my relevant work experience comes from 1 job that I had for 10 years, with 1 supervisor. I’m not sure a manager from a restaurant I worked at in 2002 is relevant, much less remember me and still work at the restaurant. It all seems so arbitrary. I’ve had one boss for 10 years. I would think his opinion of me would matter more than some nobody that doesn’t even remember me that supervised me over a decade ago.
It’s not until asked for professional references that you realize that you don’t know anyone.
