“ah fuck, I’m in the weeds”

The formal definition of “in the weeds” means “immersed or entangled in details or complexities”. Combined with the restaurant slang of “being overwhelmed with diners' orders”, you can surmise that what you’re reading is something about various kitchen shenanigans and my various learnings from said shenanigans.

Mostly, it’s so you can learn some food things so you’re less in the weeds.
