Good news! Carmel, a lovely woman staying in the Play Room, has allowed me to use her plug. We have the same computer and her plug is European. Thank you Carmel! So the blog will continue on. Lots of cooking and learning today. I made Lemon Curd, Dill Mayonaise like my French grandmother made, and Raspberry Jam. I also learned how to make Butterscotch Sauce, which I actually took a picture of, because it was so beautiful, but it didn't load. The photo of the salad was one I made this morning and I thought it was exceptionally beautiful with all the color. The sunflowers were a bouquet that was sitting in a bowl on the table in the front entrance.
My friend Neeve (this is only the way you pronounce her name, spelling I don't know) is the first photo. She's taught me to make scones. She makes all the sweets for the shop and she's good, really good.
My friend Florrie, in the red vest, is another master chef who is also a mother of five. I always feel immediately connected every time I meet another woman who's raised five children. Something about that number. haha! The photo of three of us, is Tiona in the middle and Debbie in the blue jacket. We're the "Monday Team." Monday is the day that we cook lunch for a large amount of people who are taking the course. It's the one day the students do not cook.
I took a picture of the Lemon Curd that I made, and also passed a tray of red and green peppers sitting on a window seal in the Demonstration Room I thought were beautiful.
The one photo of myself with Darina (in the long dress) was taken the day before. I wasn't haveing a good hair day that day but oh well, I wanted you to see Darina.
Tomorrow, more cooking and learning as much as I can before I leave on Saturday. I have more friends to take photos of so stay tuned!
Off to the beach for a long walk as I had TWO helpings of brown sugar ice cream after lunch. My oh My!
