Cooking Class

This year for Christmas, JMO got us cooking classes. Both of us could stand to learn a thing or two about making our own food. I’ve really enjoyed taking time out in the middle of the week (Wednesday nights) to spend time together and acquire a skill.

Cooking ClassJMO coated a steak in peppercorn and I made him show it off before he was allowed to cook it.

Cooking ClassMy steak was not so pretty, but pretty tasty.

Cooking ClassWe also stuffed a chicken, roasted it, and then someone else cut it up and it arranged it on this plate.

Cooking ClassI made Calvin (our teacher) take a cheesy picture with us. Calvin shared lots of neat tips, all kinds of things that had never occurred to me. I only took pictures the last night, but we made stew, steaks, sauces, homemade spaghetti sauce, and several other things that have slipped my mind. I am pretty much an amazing cook now. We took our classes at the Sur La Table at the City Centre, Calvin was our teacher, and it was overall a great experience that I would highly recommend!

Although this was not on my Life List, or a part of my Happiness To Do list, learning new things is a key element to happiness. I learned something new with the boy I love, there is definite happiness value there!
