How exciting masterchefjr!! We're very proud of you. So is this program through your school? I see your 16 so was wondering if it is a program that is part of high school or if your taking this as a seperate program outside of high school. Keep us posted and please continue to show your work. Again........VERY PROUD OF YOU!!

yea its a school program. well actually a county program. like therse other stuff you can choose as classes such as auto tech, or IT classes, networking etc. criminal justice (like how to become a cop), dentistry. You can only take these if you have the time for them cause 1 of these = 2 of reg class. and a bus picks me up from my base school and sends me to an academy school, but i just drive there

I'm so glad to see you back! We've missed you, and obviously you've been quite busy with school!
That swan is beautiful! I am so proud of you!
Please keep showing us your work!

(and I have a feeling you're going to ace this class!)

This is just way too cool! I have a feeling some of us (ahem) are living vicariously through your schooling!

well today i seared crab cakes in olive oil. pretty simple steps. burnt (too golden) or broke 35 dollars worth of crab cakes meaning 7 crab cakes then got the hang of it. pour oil in two pans wait til hot flatten crab cakes with hand to shape em, then throw em in the oil then flip when a golden brown. take pans to dish room repeat process. I was pretty consistent

too bad my dad took away my camera i would have lots of pictures

wut i learned today.
oil needs to be hot like really hot or else the crab cakes soak up the oil

oil can only be used once

quote of the day "you burn it i burn you twice"
