The bad news is that I've gone and broke my neck. Or I pinched a nerve. Something bad mysteriously happened. All I know is that I can't turn my head and it hurts a whole lot. You win some, you lose some.
This is also my last week of my first classes. If things go according to plan I will be servesafe certified and finish Culinary 1 strong.
What I will miss most about Culinary 1 is the lunches. I already told you about the braised lamb and the grilled salmon. We also had pork chops with chambord sauce, asparagus with hollandaise and mashed potatoes one day. We also made fried shrimp and tartar sauce. Another day we had a duo of soups. One was a leek and potato potage and the other was lobster bisque. They were both incredibly delicious. The only down side of the lobster bisque was the killing of the lobsters. I hadn't really expected to see that. Our chef said the most humane way to do it is to just chop them right in half, which is what he did. I was slightly disturbed but by the time we were done cooking, the lobster had become just ingredients to me. Oh so very tasty ingredients.
Oh, and Happy Halloween!
