Whew…..finally home and it’s a lovely 75 degrees outside!! I did eat my airport dinner and it held me over very well. Once I got home I ate 2 small christmas cookies that I brought back from wisconsin that my grandma made (nothing like homemade cookies made by your grandma!) and a small cup of hot peppermint chocolate vitasoy. My calories are still low for the day (about 1700) but since I didnt exercise it’s fine. And I’m exhausted with still a bunch of recipes to write for tomorrow’s class…and I have my first quiz on beef!
I’m really trying to make this blog unique because I do realize there are tons of health food/exercise blogs out there right now. I’ve been wanting to do this project for awhile now because my final goal IS to write cookbooks! I also thought it might be fun though to include some real-life culinary school tales…..seriously, a lot of interesting things happen behind the scenes!!!! Oh, I have more than a few stories…. 😉 Its very hard work above all…and some days I want to quit. But, then I remind myself this is what I was born to do. I take a deep breath, relax, do some yoga and all is well.
On tap tomorrow is:
Herb Stuffed Pork Chops
(right now I am in MEAT class for 3 weeks. All we do everyday is prepare different cuts of meat. Funny because I’m not even a big meat eater! I rarely sit down and eat everything I have made for the day like most of the guys in class that load up their plates everyday at noon with more meat than a human should consume in a week, but I do taste every single thing I prepare. I have to!)
Yes, my grandparent’s really do have this hanging on their wall.
