fist pump tuesday
Here’s what’s making me pump my fist today:
1. In the Kitchen, At Last, At Last! — I started my first lab class for culinary school today! Though not normally a morning person, I bounced out of my back door at 6:30 am, trotting down to arrive in my bakery class around 6:45. We got a tour of the kitchen we’ll be baking in and ohhhhh my gosh. Not only do I get to use really cool equipment (hearth ovens! rotating ovens! sheeters!) that costs thousands of dollars, I also get to become a parent. That’s right, Chef told us that tomorrow, we all become proud mamas and daddies of SOURDOUGH STARTER. I have been coveting after this stuff for months — now I finally get to learn how to use it. Wahoo, wahoo!
2. Photobooths — We did a mock “photobooth” at my sister’s wedding celebration this past weekend and everyone had a BLAST with the fake mustaches, hats, scarves and assorted other props. I even snuck out from behind the camera for a few shots myself — can you recognize me with a moustache?
3. Shortcuts — After a zippy ten-hour day, I found myself in Target, checking off a large list, and I (gasp!) bought a frozen pizza for dinner. That’s right, I did it. And it smells gooooooood.
