Some years ago a burger restaurant placed a $100 coupon ad in a newspaper for whom I worked. One ad: two offers. Cents off on a hamburger or cents off on a milk shake. Or both.

The survey asks questions about how you feel about this new broiler, and if you think it is a good idea to spend money researching ways to improve the cooking process. Its obvious from the 3 page survey that someone (Tibetan restaurant King?) wants to know if you’d be willing to pay more for an environmentally conscious hamburger, specifically the Steakhouse XT line of sandwiches.

To prepare banana heart, discard the outer layers and the flowers until the light yellowish color is left. Finely chop and soak in water with salt for 5 to 10 minutes to retain the color. Drain and squeeze out the water making sure that no extra water is left. This way, a crumbly burger can be avoided.

High Salt content: Do you have any idea how much salt is used in this type of food? The recommended daily sodium intake for an adult is 1500 to 2400mg. A large-sized burger meal from any one of the fast food restaurant chains can contain 1330mg of sodium per meal. That is from one meal! By the end of the day imagine how hard your Liver has to work to excrete the excess sodium.

Now let’s talk about family restaurants. This type of restaurant is a popular choice for those serious business people who want to own a restaurant. There’s a lot of money to be made in family restaurants but it also entails more work than let’s say a small cafe or pizzeria. Your menu will have to be quite extensive. Most family Burger restaurant are also bigger than a typical diner or cafe. A family restaurant might need more funds to start but can also be very lucrative.

Do I sound disappointed? Do I sound like I’m sitting in a box of self pity? Oh woe is me, they FULLY cooked my burger. Oh woe is me, the beer is good and the steak fries have the perfect crispness on the outside and mashy-goodness on the inside. The quality at Sonora Brewhouse is what I expect at any of the big box chain restaurants like Gordon Biersch, but never get. The problem here is that they can be so much more. Food + Ambiance (personality) = Greatness. Sonora Brewhouse is missing the heart.

This particular survey is targeting mothers and college students. As people who regularly take surveys for money know, just because you receive an email inviting you to participate in a survey doesn’t mean you will be accepted. You must fit the demographic. So as long as you are a mother or college student you will get the $40 if you complete the survey. You never know if a survey will expand the demographic, so you really need to read the invitation emails thoroughly.

Finally just remember that you should take your time when filling out a job application. You never want to rush through it so spend the time to read it over with someone before submitting it.
