I am very relieved that last night went even better than I anticipated!!!!!
We were able to finish all the last minute nit-picky work and open the doors at 8:00, when at least 100 people bombarded the room! We did very well not only on our product, but also on our presentation because we got a little creative with the shaved dark chocolate on our white tablecloth. 😉 On our display you will see almond macaroons sandwiched with raspberry jam, linzer cookies with raspberry jam, dark chocolate covered petit fours, petit eclairs, Opera torte pieces (sort of like a tiramisu but made with a coffee rum glaze and french coffee buttercream frosting) and pink and yellow battenburg torte pieces. My dad tried one of everything and loved it all, but he said the Opera torte was his favorite (that was everybody’s favorite!). He had never really been in my school before so I gave him the grand tour and he met my chef instructors and my classmates. All in all the evening was a great success and we got out early, around 10:30! Tonight I have to take 2 written tests and we have to do our deep clean of the classroom….then that’s it! The next three weeks I go to Cakes class!
My dad had to leave early this morning and I woke up early too, ate half a banana with almond butter, and hit the gym for a lower body workout. I did lunges with weights, squats, kick-backs, calves, more squats, treadmill…all in 30 minutes! When I got back home I made a bowl of Ezekiel cereal with the other half of my banana.
For lunch today I packed 1/4 cup Cedar’s Garlic Lover’s Hummus with a Touflin (sp?) multigrain pita (love these…especially when you heat them up in the micro for a few seconds!), some carrot, celery and red pepper sticks and an orange. For later on, I packed a sliced mango and some pecans.
YAY for it being Friday! I have a very busy weekend coming up though. Tomorrow I have to rush home to get Dex to the vet by noon because he needs a third vaccination shot and then tomorrow night Ryan and I have a wedding to go to. Busy, busy, busy!
