Its only been a week, but I’m already tired of chicken and rice/pasta/potato. It wasn’t only at school, but at the house as well. It was as if the roommates wanted me to cook exactly what I had been cooking and tasting during class all week. Except they had no idea what I was doing during class.
Some serious menu planning and memorization has to happen this weekend. I may even have time for a bit of a social life. Three distinct menus, one of which has to be a classical French menu, the other two maybe a pan-asian and mediterranean design. The first group of recipes (sauces) has to be memorized over the weekend.
The school is hosting a soup scholarship competition in about two weeks. I will be submitting my chilled tomato soup. I need to start working on the Halloween competition menu and a Halloween dinner party as well. Both are due on Oct 28th. No idea at the present moment what to create for the Halloween events, but I have about six weeks to figure it out.
