1st Semester Done!

Wow! That was the fastest 8 week class I have ever taken. It was so busy, I felt like I was always gone. We ended this week with 7, I repeat 7 tests in 3 days! After doing a knife skills test, herb and spice test, then math and vocab test came the big cooking test. 

I was so nervous and stressed because we did not know what we were cooking until 5 minutes before we had to cook the dish. After calming myself down and trying not to stress over it, it wasn't that bad. 

I got a Roast Beef and Cheddar Wrap with Horseradish Mayo with a Macaroni Salad. The first one I had to follow the recipe then the macaroni salad I had to come up with the recipe myself. This all had to be done in 40 minutes. 40 minutes! Ha! I got this in the bag! Pffffttt... Yeah those 40 minutes.... yeah they go by a lot quicker when you are not in a small kitchen and have much more walking to do just to gather your ingredients and tools. 

After getting that finished it was a huge relief to have that finished. I am glad to say I had fun and did well! I can not wait for the next semester start which sadly isn't until August but with more time on my hands I will be creating and posting much more often with recipes!
