Busy Bee

I can't believe it's been so long since I've put up an actual post. I have been cooking, it's just been quite busy around here. Work has been wearing me down but it's getting better with each day that I work. We had a belated Thanksgiving last Saturday instead since I worked the day before, the day of and the day after thanksgiving. So by the time Saturday rolled around, I was so tired, I didn't want to start cooking for thanksgiving, but I got my lazy butt up and at it.

I've been having soup alot lately for dinner and I really enjoy that. It's getting chilly here, so when I get home it's so nice to just warm up some soup for dinner. Plus, I'm the only one who has soup, so it lasts for several days which means, I don't need to cook! YAY!
I know I haven't blogged about school lately, but we did pies for like 3 weeks straight, and by the time thanksgiving came, I was so tired of pies, I couldn't possibly say one more word about it. lol. Last week we made croissants and my group got the whole wheat croissants. We made some plain like the one below and we also stuffed some with a mixture of spinach, olive oil, pecirino (?) cheese. Did you know stuffed croissants are supposed to be straight, not curled at the tips like a normal croissants. Ahh...the secrets we learn here at school. :-)
I have more to come, but finals week is this coming week so I gotta work and study and probably won't be able to post until after finals. :-( So you guys have a good week!

Happy late Thanksgiving! Your croissants look quite good, but I'm sure the butter turned you off.
Those things are loaded.

Good luck with finals! I'm sure you'll do great. Study extra hard.

Okay hon. Good luck with your studies and may the fair winds of success blow your way.

This may sound extremely odd, but some days, especially the blustery days, all I want for each meal is soup! Or some variant of soup. Sooouup!

I hear you, I was completely worn out by Thanksgiving and although it wasn't because of cooking school, for me it was because I hadn't been baking much so I wasn't ready to be standing all day for three days in a row! That's what happens when I stop running......... oops.

Your croissants look wonderful! How do you think they compared to the whole wheat croissants you made before at home? Which I've actually been meaning to make, it's on my to-do list.

Hi Valerie,

Sorry, I might have submitted by comment four or five times. My computer was doing funny freezing things on me. My apologies if this happened!
