I completely forgot to mention the prep work for ME :). I am in a very comfortable, light weight dress to keep me cool. The sleeves are 3/4, as constantly pushing up sleeves is distracting :). I have big thick socks on to keep my tootsies comfy as I stand all day. I have one of my pretty brocade aprons on, my makeup on, my hair up and out of my way. I feel put together, which provides a nice start to the day :). My prayers are said. My list is made. Let's actually start cooking! :)
P.S. I also wanted to mention that it is vital to have a nice, protein breakfast before starting. We need lots of long-lasting energy today!
