Food Management Game Plan
(1) Getting all the proportions right (doing the conversions and math for portions)
(2) Designating how many areas of food prep
-assign an area leader (preferably one of the apprentices) who knows what is going on
-what are the steps of food prep
                             e.g.  Let water boil for noodles ahead of time
                             e.g.  Wash bags of green onions ahead of time and drain
                  e.g.  Each area must have the recipe, instructions to the recipe
(3) Cleaning (during prep, after prep, after eating)
(4) Working out a simple plan for left-overs
