It is a hobby, NO MORE.

Now I have a golden ticket.
Now I have a some-thing,
not looking this up.

I've been in a pretty good mood lately.  It is now time for me to emerge from my edits and "behind the internet" remarks.  Recently,    I decided to get serious.  Super serious.  I am enrolling in culinary school.  This past week I went for a kitchen visit.

I aided and assisted(annoyed and obstructed) a class of students for 3 hours.  Primarily, I did prep work and dishes.  However, at one point we were making crepes, I stole the batter to make one of my own, someone suggested I use my finger to make flipping it easier.
I let him know that not only did I already flip it, I also used my hand.  I ain't 'fraid of no pan.

Starting out, I fully expect to be at the bottom of the barrel, the runt of the pecking order.  I am sure though that I will be the cream of the crap.  Most importantly, I am now in the barrel, in the pack.
(enough with the sayings, amirite?)

 Look at that ugly mug.

Wish me luck and few cuts.  Bactene and me, we're gonna be good buddies.


It does tricks!  It will steal your wallet!

P.S.  Philadelphia, I watched the gap, it did nothing. I wasn't sure what I was looking for, maybe I missed it.  While "watching" the gap, I spent my time trying to think about what the gap might do.  Maybe the notice is about mice, or maybe there is a gap monster.  I couldn't imagine that they actually want everyone staring at the gap while exiting and entering the train.  My sarcasm stems from bias, I've always liked "Mind the gap", not a verb we use enough here. 

For life baby.


  1. Hey, good luck with culinary school! I'm a serious foodie (love to cook, love to eat) and have thought on more than one occaision of enrolling myself. But, I know I'd never be able to hack the restaurant biz so I will just continue to make creations out of my own kitchen. Thanks for visiting my blog! You should take a look at my food photos... :-)

  2. Congrats! What a great decision. I've secretly toyed with the idea of going to pastry school but I can't tear myself away from trying cases in the court room. Btw, I just watched Willy Wonka on tv today, and I can't even remember those lyrics. I just keep thinking of the Family Guy spoof and Peter hurting his leg.

  3. Congratulations on the start of a new adventure! You'll be fabulous!!!

    Patty, for the potatoes, I've come to the conclusion that if I had cut them up, the broth would have infused into the flesh...and I would have enjoyed them so much more :) Thanks for asking~

  4. Congratulations on a new start. This is going to be so exciting for you. Believe in yourself and anything is possible.

  5. Congratulations on your decision. Enjoy every moment of culinary school, including those cuts. Those prove, you are achieving.

  6. Congratulations on the start of your new career. Culinary school is a great decision, and you will not regret one moment of it. You will be a great chef, with your love and passion for cooking!
    Thanks for commenting on my blog:DDD

  7. Good luck with culinary school! You'll have a blast - and learn so much. And learning how to tolerate hot hot hot things with your hands is important, so it looks like you are well on your way to success. Best of luck.

  8. Congratulations! I'm sure you'll have a great time and learn loads :)

  9. How cool- good for you!! I have wanted to go to culinary school for a long time, and am still considering it. Maybe one day :)

  10. You shouldn't mock the 'mind the gap' signs. Had I minded the gap, perhaps I wouldn't have broken my arm during my trip to Spain last year. Ugh.

    Congrats on culinary school though! What a trip :)

  11. Good luck in culinary school! I often wish that I had done that when I was younger. It sounds like a great opportunity! :)
