Yep, I’ve got a certificate that says I’m a certified natural foods (macrobiotic) chef. Wow- how’d that happen?! The year and a half has FLOWN by.
Two days before my graduation I helped with a catered meeting of our schools teachers. I wasn’t able to get a lot of pictures but aren’t these cookies exquisite?
Almond Jewel Cookies (not my recipe)
Teaser recipe! Sorry, it’s not mine to give out
My big day! One of the graduates made corsages for us out of wild flowers she picked. How nice, right? Cara and Mike came and cheered me on, too. Nothing better than a group of great people, nourishing food, and a new certificate.
Graduates strike a pose!
Once it’s on paper it’s real right? The whole thing is surreal to me still. I have one more thing to do before I graduate; my cooking demo. I’ll be making a no-bake vegan version of my grandma’s blackberry and custard pie. The date isn’t completely set but it is open to the public (so anyone can come!) and I will be providing samples for everyone! Of course, I’ll send out an invite as soon as the date is set. I’m hoping a few of my friends can come to help with my nerves! lol
things to look forward this week:
strawberry jam recipe, a new trailer review and MORE
