To be completely honest, some of these drinks are unpleasant.  A few are amazing.  Over time the recipes will evolve into what I hope is a nutritious and very tasty drink.   These recipes belong to the “Vet.”  So all credit should go to him.  Yes he is one of the roommates, (and yes they all will have nicknames for the purpose of this blog.)

Did anyone else know that it’s Brownie for Brunch Month?  Tomorrow is Julia Child’s birthday.  Appropriate that my last day of orientation at a French Culinary school happens to be on the same day?   Coincidence?  I think not.    The legend that brought French Cuisine to America with her book Mastering the Art of French Cooking.    So after a day on campus, I’ll probably come back to the house and watch  Julie and Julia, just to celebrate.

As I begin my journey,  I feel like there is still so much to learn about the culinary world.   It’s a little intimidating to be on this precipice, but my future seems to be filled with hope.

Until next time…. Grub wisely
