I feel like I’ve been running a thousand miles an hour this week, it has flown. Today in school I made some Béchamel sauce that I turned into Alfredo sauce and served up with some fettuccini and pan fried chicken (my cooking partner made the chicken and I didn’t eat it). The Alfredo sauce was delicious and super easy to make. I actually felt a little like this:
the whole time I was cooking, but it came out okay. Today I learned that Béchamel sauce is totally not as hard to make as it looks when you read the directions.
Monday was a whole other story. Get me baking and I’m fine, in the savory part of the kitchen I’m lost even though I cook at home all the time.
Case in fact: double chocolate bread pudding. This stuff is yummy. It’s like a super rich, moist chocolate cake. Actually, it started out as a dense fudgy cake that was broken into chunks and soaked in chocolate custard sauce, topped with cinnamon and sugar and chocolate chips and then baked. Holy crap this stuff is amazing. It’s a little crisp on top and then moist and soft inside. I could eat a huge pan of it every day.
I am still loving school. Everyday after class I come home and I’m so happy and so full of adrenaline that I just can’t sit down, so I’ve been cooking at home, too. Small things usually, heating up something quick for lunch Monday and then a big pot of soup yesterday. I finally have the feeling that I’m where I belong and I never would have dreamed it would be in a kitchen.
I’ve been knitting at night, too, and I’ll try to have some kind of update Friday. Have a great rest of the week!
