For the multi-use pie dough
200 grams plain flour, plus extra to dust pinch of salt
100 grams unsalted butter, chilled and cubed
2 tablespoons cold water

For the quiche

1/8 cup corn kernels
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup whole milk salt and pepper to taste

...view, which was pleasant. The table cloth on one side had remains of some sauce which did end up on one of our member’s hand, which showed that they did not change the table cloth. After placing the order, it took about 20 minutes for the appetizer to come out, and another 15 minutes for the main courses to come out. It seemed that they had a few waiters around two on the first floor, which made it very difficult to call one of the waiters if we needed anything as they were busy taking orders. So every time we needed anything we would have to wait around 5 – 10 minutes for them to come. The waiters also seemed to be very confused as one would come and inform us that he was sending the other one to take our order and vice versa. The waiters we dressed in white shirts with the logo placed on the right top side with black pants and black shoes along with a marronish brown half apron around them. We did notice one of the waiter’s shirts being quite dirty with a stain, which made us uncomfortable about hygiene issues. The air-conditioning was working fine and the place looked reasonably clean. They had some music playing in the background which was a little loud for our choice, but that was just our opinion. * Food quality: As the appetizer platter was placed on our table, to be honest we did feel that it was a little expensive compared to the quantity given. The other issues that we had was that the fried calamari was over cooked leaving it hard in texture rather than......

... Allow them 15 minutes, which is more than enough time to have a smoke. Since most of the employees are in their late 60's, hire about 2 to 4 younger people who has good work ethic, references, etc. Offer appetizers for the customers while they are waiting. Also allow call in orders, some people would rather call in their order. Stop giving things away for free. No matter who it is, everyone should pay for what they want.

The new employees can be taught how to run the front(cashiering, order taking, etc) and the older employees can be in the kitchen.

Basically, A BINGO Menu would consist of twelve different items on the T.G.I. Friday’s Menu, ranging from appetizers to entrées and finally a couple desserts. It can be any sixteen items on the menu and even after a few months or after a new menu comes out, they can remake a new BINGO card. The key rules that would be involved with this BINGO Menu would be: 1. Each person who comes in will be asked by the server if they would like to see and try out one of our new BINGO Menu cards before they choose their drinks 2. The card will be handed out and the rules will be on the back of the card as well 3. When a person orders something that is on the card (Only one appetizer, entrée, and dessert per visit) the server will make a special mark/punch on the card. (This could also be used in co-op with the stripes card to keep track). 4. Each time someone gets a four in a row a.k.a. BINGO, they will receive a free appetizer or entrée (Scott’s choice) on T.G.I Fridays. 5. If someone fills the whole card by trying each item on the menu then they will receive a free dinner for two or a free three course meal (appetizer, entrée, and dessert). T.G.I.
