I can cook
I have a reputation of being able to burn water. Unfortunately the reputation has been earned by actually doing that at least once. Burning water that is. Anyway...last Christmas I gave Hero Husband a stocking stuffer of a hands on cooking class at the culinary school in Central Market. Seemed like a better date night than dinner and a movie. We have spent the last 10 months trying to figure out what class to take and rescheduling when hurricanes would interrupt our plans. So the night finally arrived and Tuesday we showed up for a Tex-Mex cooking class I was really excited. We cooked shredded chicken tacos, guacamole salad, chalupas, refried beans and gorditas. I made my own tortillas (thanks to Hero Husband's well timed tutorial~hello where has that been for the last 15 years?) and the biggest news from the whole adventure was that I am really good at cutting tomatoes, Hero Husband and I can cook in the kitchen together without wanting to put our knives to use on each other and I didn't suck at everything else. Woo Hoo...Now I have to figure out how to do it at home.
