bon appetit

before marylynn & scott left us (tear) we all went and took a cooking class at the culinary institute. it was INTENSE. I came away with a whole new appreciation for chefs. 
this was our menu:
Classic Shrimp Cocktail
 Clams Casino
 Grilled New York Strip with Beurre Ma├«tre d’
 Filet Mignon au Poivre with Cognac-Cream Sauce
 Grilled Center-Cut Double Pork Chops with Bourbon-Mustard Glaze
 Caesar Salad
 Leaf Spinach with Cream Sauce
 Whipped Truffled Potatoes
 and Almond Bread Pudding with Brandy Sauce 
we worked pretty dang hard for about 4 hours. 
one of the best parts for me was watching the chef work. he never set a timer or measured anything. he would reach right into a pot of boiling water to poke a potato, it was miraculous to watch him work using his super chef senses and instincts. 
J was pretty good too! :)
at the end we all sat down and ate our hearts out! don't worry this was just one of the many plates J and I shared. after four hours of cooking in a kitchen like that we were starved and we definitely feasted! 


  1. OK, I would like to request this exact same menu next time you two come home! yes?? yes!!!

  2. Looks pretty amazing. I'm jealous

  3. I couldn't even pronounce some of the things on your menu. It all looks so delicious! You have inspired me to take a cooking class sometime in the near future. What a fun night!


thx a mill
