Spring Semester

Wednesday, January 10, 2007

When I made my first girlish attempt at higher education the semesters just dragged by.  I felt like three months was a lifetime, and the time between semesters was just a blink of your eye.  Now that I am older I find that all time, no matter what I am doing, goes by in the […]

Waiting for grades, and other observations

Grades come out this week at school.  They are posted tomorrow the be precise.  I am having a hard time waiting because, and this is typical of me, I am impatient.  I am the girl standing in front of the microwave willing the pop corm to pop faster … or conversely scavenging for crackers because […]

Boy, slap my mouth and call me a slacker!!  I have been so busy that posting here has not been a high priority, but I wanted to do the semester end round-up.  Yee-haw!  Safety & Sanitation: I got the highest score in my class on the ServSave National Exam … 98%.  I was surprised, because […]

Last week we made cakes, and I did not remember to take any pics!!!  The good news is we are decorating the cakes this Saturday so I will get to take my pics then. Cakes are pretty easy for me, in general, but our teams angel food cakes fell in the oven.  Our teacher said […]

Puff Pastry, Tarts, and Mid-Terms

I got 107 on my mid-term.  WOW, eh?  I got a lot of points for the extra credit she offered, and that saved my bacon! We made tarts, puff pastry dough and pate a choux (like cream puffs and eclairs) in class Saturday, but I did not get any pics this week.  (I know, naughty!)  […]

Making more pie …

We made more pies last Saturday.  I have some great pics of them that I will post this week.  Aside from the pies being really nice, the day was total crap for me. I made someone mad in my group and I feel bad about it, but also confused.  Confused because I am not sure exactly […]

Next Saturday in Fun-Bake we are making pies.  I pretty much know how to make pies, and pie dough, so I am not too worried.  I will just listen to what the instructor has to say and follow her directions.  Heck, the formula for the crust is pretty close to mine, except I use half […]

And I got a 150 out of 150 for my cookies and corn muffins. WHEW!!! It went way better than I could have hoped!  Nerves aside, it was pretty easy to get my focus.  I did one thing at a time, and I took my time (but, neither took that long) and it paid off!  […]

I am really nervous about my mid-term practical tomorrow. I should not be, but I am.  This week I have practiced my cookies and corn muffins.  The cookies turned out ok but I feel they spread too much.  The corn muffins were lovely. So, if you read this before 12pm tomorrow please think good thoughts […]
