junkie here. I went to cooking school (2 semesters) last year, but won't be going back. Not going to pay that kind of money (although it was pretty cheap, but still thousands of $$) to be insulted for another year by people that are intimidated by me. They are not the brightest bulbs in the box. I worked as a prep cook the first semester, but by Thanksgiving i was in a walking cast, destroyed my feet. Not sure what I'm going to do with my new schooling yet, but would like to feed people. Working on an idea with our church to do Sunday Suppers, inviting those in the neighborhood, folks that are clients of our food pantry, and congregation members, a mix of folks. In the meantime, I am going back to performing, playing gigs and doing musical play activities for very young children at home daycares.
