We've just returned from Portland - a Mother's Day gift trip, just redeemed, from Colin and the boys.
Our destination was Portland's Culinary Workshop where Colin had booked some cooking classes for us.
I won't exaggerate and say that Colin loves to cook. In fact, he does not, so the gift was extra special to me.
I'd never taken a cooking class until this and I wasn't quite sure what to expect. The first night, we prepared Vegetarian Vegan Delights and the next, Thai Street Food.
Our chef instructor was Susana Holloway. It's funny how no matter where you go or who you meet, you'll always find others who are living out their dreams. And that's Susana. Time with her was warm, happy, and well spent. A real treat. I think any new knowledge is a gift.
How many slams in an old screen door? Depends how loud you shut it.
How many slices in a bread? Depends how thin you cut it.
How much good inside a day? Depends how good you live 'em.
How much love inside a friend? Depends how much you give 'em.
