Cooking Class


Saturday, October 19, 2013

This week has been a stressful one but I don't really want to go into it.

One bright spot was a team building cooking class on Friday. I had suggested it to my manager. It was something that I stumbled upon while looking for a cooking class for myself.

Our menu was France by Land: Crispy Goat Cheese Salad with Honey Dijon Vinaigrette, Haricot Vert with Herb Butter, Pommes Puree, Pan Seared Rib Eye Steaks with Cognac]Mustard Pan Sauce and for dessert a rich Dark Chocolate Mousse and Palmiers.

There were 7 of us that went. There were different stations for the different items and some were single stations and some double. Kind of interesting because it was team building and 3 people worked alone. Oh well. It was a lot of fun and the food was delicious. We all ate together when we were done preparing the food and were able to take home the leftovers.

It was a nice way to end the week.

On another note, today I had a great me day. I got a lot of things done at home (using the Pomodoro method) for the house and outside, and even some ironing (Val). Also worked out and got in my 10K steps, which I haven't done this week.

And on another note, one of the official photos from the 10K

    I imagine the stress had to do with your mom. That stuff is no fun.

I'm delighted that you had fun with your cooking class. What a novel team building exercise! I love it!

    I knew that ironing would grow on you! emoticon
I hope the steam helped you to let off steam after this stressful week.
