Pesky Mango on the lose!
How in the world did we lose the Mango?
After all, we diligently count the clients order, calculating how many batches need to be prepared. Raw ingredients are checked, and ordered as necessary. Then, on to the process of mixing bases. (This always conjures up the image of "Double, double toil and trouble, fire burn, and cauldron bubble". I think it's from a childhood that spent way too many of my early years in front of the TV...)
As spring time (finally)arrives here in the NW, we've started out our season with very little stock held over the winter months. And when a pallet order comes in, we like to make the product to order, providing the freshest of product available. It usually means spending dedicated days in the process. Weighing, mixing, dicing, chopping, puree-ing (is that a word?), etc., etc. So, all along the way, we are working with an final batch number in mind. We know what was ordered and what needs to go out. Prepare to palatalize, count and check as tubs are loaded. Wait, a minute... we have a missing mango.
Did a peach get mis-marked? No...
It's not in the kitchen...
or the warehouse...
or the mobile freezers... are we going insane?
So, how in the world did we LOSE A MANGO? Can a mango just up and disappear? Well apparently so. But probably more likely will be one of those times when you find it (after the fact )right in plain site. (kinda how your looking for your glasses when they're on your head.)
But for now, the saga of the pesky mango is still unsolved. and the mystery continues...
