And, of course, there were plenty of warnings about the potato salad that sits out way too long at the church picnic.
Remember to stay away from that!!! Now I know it only takes 4 hours at the critical range of 41-135 degrees F to reach a critical level of at least 1 billion Salmonella! YIKES!!! Ignorance is bliss...I know.
Of course, I should remember this from my Microbiology course back at U of Dallas. My excuse, that was years ago!! I was a little nervous to take my test at the end of the day. After all it was the end of the day, I was tired, I don't ever do days like this...full working days (packed food and everything!), and there was no real study time. I took notes, listened to the videos, didn't fall asleep, and paid attention to the trainer's reviews. However, I still wasn't 100 percent confident. So...I took the test anyway.
My "Homeschool Mom" Gear....Kicked Into Gear!!!
That's right! The trainer said the test would take an hour at least to complete. Do you remember these?
I was filling in the scan-tron as quickly as I could read the question. I was surprised at how much information I had retained. I finished within a half hour! I was so shocked that I just. sat. there. I was nervous to get up so....I waited for another guy to turn in his test first! Somehow those test-taking fears never really go away! So I've still got something in this old head of mine.
I should get the test results in about 10 days. At that point ServSafe will send me a certificate that I'll turn around to the state to receive my state certification. Next steps, next steps...I don't know what those are right now, but at least I took this baby step today. Thank God for that!
