Today I went to a cooking demonstration at the local kitchen store. Keep in mind there are no WalMarts or big corporate stores on the island. No McDonalds or Burger King or Dunkin Donuts, not even a Ben & Jerry’s. The businesses are all island owned. So I wasn’t at Sonoma Williams. This store had everything though. I was in cooking heaven. Well, not quite heaven because I had no money.
The demonstration was done by the owner of Tea Lane Caterers. Her name was Dee and she had attended the Culinary Institute of America so she was a real chef. She was demonstrating cooking with WonTons. I learned a lot and met a woman who I am going to send some crock pot recipes to. She was very nice and we exchanged phone numbers. I can actually make wontons that are low fat. We got to taste everything that Dee cooked which was fun as it was lunchtime.
The store I was at was right across the street from Sarah’s store so of course I went to visit her afterwards.
I am going to take a course in crochet beading or something like that in April if I am healed enough from my knee replacement surgery on March 11th. I am really trying to do more and get out more instead of staying home all the time. I also have to be out and about if I am going to nab handicapped parking thieves and yell at dumbass non-blinker users. I just hope people don’t mistake my yelling at them for road rage. No, not me, I’m not angry.
Don’t you just love this sign. I thought I could put up a few around town.
I can already see that I am going to have a lot of fun here. It’s like a new beginning.
