In class on Monday one of my classmates made the cutest little felt valentines (which of course I forgot to take a picture of). She made little felt hearts, pieces of bacon, eggs, butter and tacos. All in all I had a wonderful Valentines Day!!
In class were doing custards and mousses for the next couple of weeks and last night I got to try Crème Brulee for the first time.
I still love culinary school despite the schedule and being exhausted 99% of my week. The only thing I dislike is how high school it can feel. It’s been a very long time since I’ve been in an environment where people are so childish, gossipy and get their feelings hurt so easily.
A lot of people are not focused on the big picture of learning culinary arts. They come to school to see who likes them and how many friends they can make. It can get quite old dealing with the nonsense and drama that can ensue during class time, but knowing how hard it was for me to be able to attend this school, helps me see past a lot of that. Also I got another scholarship a few weeks ago, I had applied for it last year and got called that I won it. Things like that make it so worth it, along with knowing what I will achieve this upcoming November. I am actually consider taking the culinary end of the program after this. That program would focus on food overall...but its something I am still pondering.
Well I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentines Day, and I leave you with one of my favorite songs of the week. A definite Valentines mushy song, its a little cheesy, but this is exactly how I feel about my LOVE!!
