Because they have not yet hired a new employee, but have a position posted, they posted a sign for days before the segment that they would open later. There is a sign on the door right now stating the opening time for the day. While they know it is a loss of revenue for The Flavor Café for the day, they are getting paid for segment and getting free advertising, which will more than make up for the loss.
As soon as they hire at least one part-time employee and, possibly, an employee just to help cover that morning, they will be okay. More employees may even mean keeping the café open longer hours and on through the weekend. They aren't sure yet, but they are hopeful.
So they are about to start and I don't want to miss a thing. So let's see what's happening.
Peyton: Are you ready, Ladies. I'm sure you'll be fine. Just think like you're talking to your family and friends or just one customer at a time. Don't worry about the cameraman as he moves around, sometimes we need closer shots. Pretend he's not there.
Rowan: Okay. I'll try to do that.
Marisol: I'm a little nervous, but I'm sure we'll get through it.
Peyton: The camera will get close during the table updates so the team isn't caught on camera. So those are your extra chat moments like we discussed. Relax, breathe, pace yourself and have fun with it. Okay?
Rowan and Marisol: Okay.
Peyton backs away using her fingers for countdown based on the countdown she's getting in her headphones. Now they are live!
Rowan: Good morning, good people. I'm Rowan and this is Marisol from The Flavor Café and we're happy to be here with you this morning.
Marisol: Yes, good morning.
Rowan: We have lots to show you today with a mix of foods and kitchen items to help you serve yourself, family and friends some delicious food.
Rowan: Summer's coming to an end, but there's still plenty of time to enjoy being in your backyard while cooking a delicious and satisfying meal for your family. Here are a couple of quick ideas. Oven fried chicken and easy mac and cheese. Prep time is 20 minutes. While you're boiling the macaroni, you simply coat the chicken with flour and bread crumbs, seasoned to taste, spray oil on the pan and the top of the chicken and into the oven it goes.
Marisol: That does sound easy. Is the mac and cheese that simple too?
Rowan: Absolutely. Simply mix flour, milk and melted butter, pour and mix in the macaroni, pour the macaroni in the pan in layer, adding macaroni and then the cheese, with cheese as the last layer and put it in the oven with the chicken. Then you just go play while you wait to enjoy your meal
Marisol: What about that other plate of deliciousness? It looks simple.
Rowan: It is. Veggies and roughage along with protein. An egg fried sunny side up, some Canadian bacon, or turkey bacon if that's your preference, or even pork roll with broccoli or another green veggie. You're ready to enjoy in just 15 minutes, which includes 5 minutes of prep time. Oh, and some people really like the extra flavor ketchup brings to their eggs. Add a little to enhance the flavor.
Marisol: That sounds convenient and delicious. But I also think if you have time, you can include some warm bread with it. Maybe some easy to bake rolls.
Rowan: That sounds great. Do we have some and how did you make them?
Marisol: As a matter of fact I do. Let me show you.
Rowan: That does sound convenient all around. Where can I get one?
Marisol: It's made TRe-mentous and it is just perfect. Lots of heating and temperature option. It's available at most major stores. To find out where, check online or call your local store.
Rowan: I'll have to do that.
Rowan: I think it's so cute and creative. Let's show how this all looks together on a plate for serving.
Marisol: It sure is. So, Rowan. Now that we've had dinner, what's next?
Marisol: Are there easy options?
Rowan: I think we can show some easy options, but I can't help but throw in one option that may take a little work, but is a classic favorite. I do recommend getting a recipe that you like, a there are several available.
Marisol: I can hardly wait. You're building up suspense here. What's classic, needs a recipe, takes work and I'm hoping is worth it.
Marisol: I love it! I'm sure with a paring tool, it will take no time at tall to prepare your apples. That large knife looks a little intimidating.
Rowan (laughing): What can I say? I'm daring with time on my hands. What about you, Marisol?
Rowan: It does look delicious, but I think I have a competitor over here.
Marisol: I love loaf cake.
Rowan: You would enjoy this one. Baked and packaged fresh and great for freezing.
Marisol: Yes. Speaking of which, let's talk about how to best store your food for later consumption.
Marisol: Is that a pot for the hot water?
Rowan: It sure is. It's another TRe-mentous product. Once you've used the ac/dc cord to heat up your water, you unplug it and leave it on this heating element which keeps it hot up to an hour.
Marisol: No reheating necessary if I'd like another cup? I love that.
Rowan: Me too. It looks like you also have another classic drink to suggest.
Rowan: It's great with chocolate in it too.
Marisol (laughing): I've heard it's good that way. I think we have covered everything. What do you think, Rowan?
Rowan: I'm thinking that although we're trying to keep our time in the kitchen quick and short, we are still alone and it's quiet. It would be nice to have some company.
Marisol: You are so right, what do you suggest?
Rowan: Me too. Can you believe this is yet another TRe-mentous product? They make some awesome kitchen items.
Rowan: We hope you have picked up some good tips today. We are looking forward to showing some more related items in the future. If you have a chance, stop by and see us at The Flavor Café.
Marisol: We'll see you next week, but most of all we want to say...
Marisol and Rowan: Have a good morning, good people.
Well, that went off without a hitch. I guess Rowan and Marisol got over being nervous. We'll see how the business is affected and we'll see if they hire anyone so they can handle any increases.
Thanks for stopping by. ~ Jaye
