A Family Affair
After a truly crappy week, I was facing a Saturday night class with some trepidation. I really needed it to be a good class and usually when I need that, well, guess what happens? NOT a good class. More often "the class from Hell" complete with pitchforks and tails and an experience much like herding cats.
As the ladies began to arrive, I summoned my meditation breathing and focused on positive sayings from Rumi. The universe smiled, the planets aligned and I couldn't have been happier to be in class. I could have just as easily put a religious spin on this but we are non-denominational here, you know, no judging...something for everyone.
It turns out that this group of cousins from all over Oklahoma, Texas, and Alaska come together at least once a year and have fun as a family. They decided that the "fun" this time would be a cooking class. Almost without exception, these gals knew how to cook and enjoyed cooking so my evening was made in the shade. I directed, they listened, cut up and drank wine and cooked their pants off. The food looked great. Some of the best looking Tomatoes Provençale that I have seen to date, by the way. They had their dinner, signed aprons as a keepsake for the evening and off they went (to karaoke, as I understand).
So please enjoy the picture gallery from this great class. And, thank you, ladies for completely turning my week around! Definitely a testament to my mission...cooking is fun so enjoy it!
