Getting Down to Business

Today we got to work making recipes. We made a couple different salads and presented them to the rest of the class. First, we did a Thai cucumber salad (which I’ve made a less FANCY version of before). Mine came out a little busy. I need to remember that less is more sometimes.

My second salad turned out a little better. It was a jicama salad with a tahini based dressing. Almost like a Cuban potato salad sans potatoes. I’ve been meaning to make this one for a while. It’s so luxurious to be so focused on just making recipes. I love it!

In more serious news, my nephew made me my own lego spaceship equipped with a bouquet of flowers. He is such a thoughtful kid. I brought home some rocky road ice cream for everyone to try, and it went over like gangbusters. He said, ‘Is this the kind of ice cream you can eat, Auntie A? I like this better.’ What a little charmer. All you five year old girls out there better watch out!
