Ahh.. what’s that quote about plans? “The best laid plans of mice and men often go astray” .. . well, that’s pretty much how this week felt. I was doing great until about the 11th…which is when I came down with the cold from hell that won’t go away. I’m pretty sure it’s morphed into some sort of bronchitis monster living in my chest that is plotting my slow miserable death.. but I digress.
I did manage to try out the two new recipes that I had planned on .. A lovely American Style Vanilla Biscotti and a Homemade Chicken stock recipe, as well as a Thyme/Honey base cough syrup (Look for those recipe posts coming up soon. As for researching a local cooking class.. I did, and there arent’ any being offered right now. My best bet is to watch for when the local High school offers their adult education classes and try and take the ever present Sushi making class or hold out hope for the occasionally present pastry/baking class.
I also started my Christmas shopping list for the kids– It’s so hard shopping for them these days now that they’re all pre-teen and teenager ages (?!?!) Thankfully, they all love reading so choosing which books to buy has been the hardest decision I’ve had to make thus far.
