I've Got Skills

After returning from Chicago, I had a hectic two days at work and then headed to Camden on Saturday! We had our second annual Grandma's Weekend with Dee Dee. We had a great time. I will post photos from that event next. On Sunday, Mac and I went to church and then had a delicious brunch at Majestic. It was a great end to a fun weekend!

Last night, I enjoyed one of my Christmas presents! Mom gave me a class at the Viking Cooking School in Memphis. The basic knife skills class is only offered once a quarter, so my class was Monday night! It was awesome. It was about 2.5 hours long. We started out learning about knives and knife safety. We began by learning how to de-bone a chicken. Then we transitioned to learning different ways to peel and dice a tomato, then moved on to onions, green peppers, carrots, mushrooms, garlic, lettuce, etc. There were about 10 people in the class, and I think we all felt like experts by the end. When we were done chopping everything in our path, we sat down and enjoyed our hard work. We had salsa fresca and fajitas for dinner.

Here is a photo of the test kitchen before we got started. It's a tad bit blurry because I took it on my phone through the window of the waiting area. I had so much fun and would love to take another class at Viking again soon!
