Taste of Home Cooking School and a WIP

Yesterday I went to a Taste of Home Cooking School. If it ever shows up at a school by you then go. The cost was $12 and you get a goodie bag and there are tons of giveaways. I didn't win anything but learned a few cooking tips. I have 2 of the mags with recipes. The chef cooked about 9 recipes and they are in one of the mags. Plus we all got 1 year free subscription to Taste of Home. The doors opened at 1. The gym had booths all set up with party plans and home improvement places. Dove candy now does parties in your home. I didn't know that. Home Interiors and Home&Garden merged into one party plan. Some had free trials to take and some had food tasting. Then at 3 the doors opened to the auditorium and we found our seats. There was a registration form , which is where you fill out which Taste of Home mag you want. Plus the bottom half goes into the bin for a chance to win prizes. The cooking wasn't to start til 5 and my mom was hungry. The school, which is where my kids go, well Dylan is a senior and Justin graduated, was putting a beef on weck. So she had that to eat, I wasn't hungry. We went back to our seats and the show started. It was phenomenon. The chef told you what page he was cooking out of and we would yell out what the next ingredient was. I would definitely go again.

Today I needed to go grocery shopping so I made my list including 2 or 3 recipes from the magazine I brought home. Then I caught up on reading everyones' blogs. Tonights stitching was Mill Hill Treats Collage. I got some more of the border done and Tric.
I watched :
Wild Kingdom and both episodes of Life!

Tomorrow at 5pm the guy from UTI in Exton Pa is coming to our house and talk to Dylan about the school. Dylan is pretty sure he will sign up tomorrow but wants to ask a few questions and I am sure I will have some as well. Wish us luck.

Then I am hoping to stitch on Stitchy Kitty Easter Kitty Moon.

Your WIP looks great. I went to a Taste Home Cooking School with my sister in law one time and really enjoyed it. Good luck tomorrow with the interview.
