This week started the week of The Demos, where all of the students give a 15 or 20 minute demonstration of a randomly assigned recipe. It is a really big deal because no one has done it and it is basically like doing a complicated presentation. But hopefully better… Anyways, today was somewhat boring because it was just spent in preparation for the upcoming week. A plus was that they did serve fruit to us all day, and I realized how much I miss it. I think I need to eat it more often because every time I get close to fruit now I can’t stop eating it…
I got my Mise En Place, which is what they call getting all of your ingredients in one place, and now I will just have to prep it in the couple days before my demo on Thursday. That was most of the excitement for today.
I got the pictures for my appetizer and my pasta that I did last Thursday and yesterday, so here are some of the good pictures!
Three things I learned:
- You can be productive in a study group, while still laughing your butt off and having a good time. I got together with Becky and Wendy to go over a review sheet for our final test on friday, and we got through the entire thing!
- You need to stand up for yourself sometimes. Don’t let someone manipulate you when you know that it isn’t quite right.
- I do a lot of dishes. Even for the people here in school who have to wash dishes too–I do more than a lot of others sometimes. I kind of like it though, it’s very therapeutic.
Anyways, the excitement will continue tomorrow, sorry for the boring post, but I might as well just say that it happened, right? I hope you all listen to your gut because it is right so much of the time. This is something I still work on and struggle with, so there is one place for improvement! Have a wonderful day! As always,
