So today my class is going to a culinary expo here in San Diego. So we don’t have to meet up in class and I was super stoked last night because I could sleep in until 6:30 today. Well, its 6:30 now and I’ve been awake for two hours already.
I went to bed at 10pm last night.
What’s wrong with me.
Am I turning into an adult? 3:
I’m pretty stoked to go today. Free samples!
Tea and a broccoli slaw omelet for breakfast.
And I’m baking a pancake mix loaf and putting coconut chai glaze on top of it.
I might as well start to get ready.
Have a lovely day everyone :]
Its been a long day. TIme to go to sleep.
Tomorrow I’m waking up at 530 to go to school to scrub down the kitchen.
Have a wonderful week.
I have to find a catering contract and make up a fake company and fill it out accordingly.
As well as make a whole dinner menu with both descriptive and accent copy.
My lecture teacher is a fucking joke. He has had back problems and about a year and ago he fell in the kitchen and ruptured his spinal cord or something. Well, he’s so fucking jacked up on morphine that I haven’t learned anything from him all semester. I’m taking a menu analysis class and a quantity food prep lecture class and everyday I get to see his fucking face. Monday/Wednesday I have food prep and Tuesday/Thursday I have menu.
Since the classes are at the same time he doesn’t know the difference between them. And he essentially talks about nothing in these classes. Like yesterday he got a powerpoint on sandwiches and talked about it for an hour over a 5 slide powerpoint. Like, seriously dude, stop.
I never received a syllabus, nor an assignment sheet for these two assignments. I don’t even know where to begin. And about a month ago he said it was due the last day of school, and when I asked he said he would never do that and all of a sudden they’re due this week.
Today we had a test review on our ‘notes’. What notes. He’s talked about his personal life this whole semester. All I have are doodles. I’m so done with this guy.
Ugh. If he wasn’t the director of the program, and he wasn’t in love with me, I would complain.
But there’s only a week and a half left. Then I never have to take a class with him again. Ever. I’m so excited.
He should still retire though.
So I totally went to bed at like 9pm last night thinking ‘I’m just going to close my eyes for a minute’ and I woke up at 5am. Surprise!
I didn’t even set my alarm. If I didn’t wake up I would have kept my lab partner in the dish room all by herself and I would have been the worlds biggest asshole.
But now I’m awake and so fucking hungry. I think I’m going to make pancakes. But I have to get ready first.
And I’m talking to my supervisor at Donut Bar about not working there anymore. We’ll see what she thinks about it…
Have a lovely day everyone! <3
I should really do something productive tonight.
This week has been insane. I’m in school every morning at 745, in uniform, in the kitchen, monday through thursday. Monday and Tuesday I closed at work, which meant 6pm-10pm. And wednesday I worked 3-7.
I feel asleep last night at like 10pm doing homework I was so exhausted.
Did I mention I wake up every morning at 530?
Today after class I went to a farmers market and bought blood oranges and pink lady apples. And then proceeded to go to the grocery store.
I made orange chicken from scratch with brown rice for dinner. Now I’m making cupcakes because I took a persons shift who’s higher than me in the Old Navy ladder and ended up screwing up the closing. I’m also making cake for my boyfriend because I was supposed to for our six months and now we’re almost at eight. I major fail. It’s plain vanilla. I’m not sure what I want to do to them just yet.
Well, thats all for now. I shall commence homework now -____-
I haven’t had a day to do nothing in a long time. I’ll get some cleaning done. And homework, hopefully.
Next week in the kitchen I’m on desserts. I already know what I want to make:
Ahhhhh I only have three days to get that done. Well, I want to get it done. Wahhh. I’m going to plan it out so that it does.
School is going well. I’m having a lot of fun in the kitchen. And learning tons. I ask a lot of questions haha.
Have a good, productive, sunny day everyone :]
So hello. I started back in the kitchen today. I’m on multi cakes this week. We have to have a single cake done by thursday. I would have finished mine today but I was helping out my classmates. So I plan on making two, possibly three by weeks end. The second picture is the cake that I made but didn’t finish today (not mine, but from the website). And the first is me failing at drawing peanuts. I want to put a….decoration? I’m not sure if thats the right word….. whatever….. I want to put a decoration onto my cake and I decided on a white chocolate peanut. So there. I’m going towards the bottomest left peanut.
It’s an angel food, devil food cake with peanut butter mouse and chocolate ganache. Doesn’t it sound like heaven? Heres the link for the cake recipe I found.
http://www.whisk-kid.com/2010/07/ride.htmlTomorrow I plan on making a hawaiian carrot cake. I’m pretty stoked on that.
What am I talking about. I’m pretty stoked to be commercially cooking again.
I will not get to try my cakes. They will be sold. I simply get to create them….. not everything is perfect in this world huh?
So for the past couple weeks I’ve been stressing over having to pay for my classes. My father took a shit ton of money out of his retirement plan last year, so me and my sister got screwed out of financial aid. I’ve been avoiding going into the Financial Aid office because I didn’t want to hear that I’m going to have to pay $600 to go to school, when I obviously don’t have that money. But seeing as my class registration is wednesday, I figured I better find out now, so I went today and it turns out all I have to pay is the health fee. FUCKING SWEET. I want to get as many classes out of the way.
Its a huge boulder off of my shoulders.
Thats all haha. I’m about to pick out my classes :]
Have a lovely afternoon! :]
So I cut my bangs.
And I started working at Pizza Hut as a cook. I had orientation today, and then I helped out making pizzas. Haha.
Then after I went shopping and came home then started cooking for tomorrow.
I made a salad, composed of: lettuce, carrots, red onions, corn, and black beans. Then I made a salad dressing with cilantro, lime juice, garlic, olive oil, and some vinegar. And my pumpkin pie just came out of the oven.
After my sister gets off work we’re driving up to LA to have Thanksgiving with my best friend and her sister. I’m making mashed potatoes tomorrow as well :]
I made myself some tacos, from my pulled pork and then a black bean and corn salsa I made, and some fucking delicious sauce from lucha libre. Ahhh, it was divine haha.
I should start packing, I only have an hour to get ready! Ahaha.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving everybody! Be safe!! <3
