I work at The Home Depot as an Appliance Specialist and I love it (at least most of the time I do).  One of the things I really love about my job, specifically about my Home Depot store #1112, is the fact they are always trying to feed you.  From management bringing in food on holidays to employee appreciate days where you can find donuts and fruit in the break room.  But on select Fridays there are food sales where the employee committee raises money for our holiday party and other fun events by selling food that is made by the employees.  Sometimes it is a bake sale with deserts and other days they are selling hot dogs, tacos, mexican food, etc.  Employees volunteer to cook for the lunch/dinner sales.  One of my favorite Depot chef’s is Alex.

On this particular Friday it was Philly Cheesesteak day.  Now, before everybody gets all crazy about the dynamics of what a Philly Cheesesteak is and is not, remember one thing…  we are in a Home Depot break room working with what we have, that’s all.  This is OUR interpretation of a Philly Cheesesteak.  Now that I have gotten that disclaimer out-of-the-way, back to the food.

I don’t care what’s in it, that looks good!

When you think of Philly Cheesesteak I know Steak-umms don’t come to mind but don’t knock it til you try it.  Try and have an open mind.  Alex cooked that meat, if you can call it that, until it was slightly charred and then added a pepper & onion mix to it until the flavors were thoroughly combined .  Then topped it off with a slice of provolone and melted it until perfection.  Oh yeah, she whipped up some fries too!  I forgot how much they were charging but it was every last penny!  Hats off to you Alex.  Whenever I see you manning the grill I will be the first to step up with money in hand to buy what your cooking ma’am.
