Sanity Break- Cooking Class!



My hubby had a great idea. Hire a chef to show us and two other sporting couples how to cook a fabulous meal. Now of course you can cook and learn, or you can bring your wine and watch everyone cook and learn! We did both!

Chef Tim Ross (pictured above), has a company called Be Gourmet...he does catering and classes. He really is a blast. We went to his house and he cooked the most amazing meal!

Romaine salad with garlic dressing and oven roasted tomatoes served over a Parmesan waffle!

Horseradish-herb crusted tri tip with mushrooms and red wine sauce over mashed potatoes

He showed us some knife tricks and had some amazing cooking tips. My favorite was using kosher salt with chopped garlic to make it into a paste. We had a blast being with our friends and chatting with the chef. It was such a fun and interesting evening and a nice break after this day:

8 am Car Servicing (hour and a half)
drive over canyon to meeting (40 min)
11 am meeting with agent (hour)
back over canyon (40 min)
Pick up Landon and nanny
Back over canyon again (40 minutes)
Pediatrician appt with SHOTS (hour)
drive to Landons other doctor
2:30 Dr's appt (2 hours)
back over canyon (hour)
Drive Nanny home
Home with Landon


After all that I needed a Parmesan waffle and some wine! You better believe it! Sanity break for sure!
