by PierreBear » Apr 10, 2018 Good morning friends! I had such a fun time in cooking class yesterday. I forgot to take pictures again, sorry… but we made steak au poive, ceasar salad, and banana fosters. The reason why we cooked these items is that they tend to be “table side service” where the hostest might do took it in front of you and talk about it etc… though I’ve never been to a restaurant and ordered or seen that before. Both the steak au poive and the banana fosters required booze in the recipe so you throw it into the pan and the fireball flambé occurs, which scares me half to death. Something I would never do at home by myself so it was nice to get coaching and be pushed. Note to all of ya’ll who want to try, you can pull the pan aside, dump in the alcohol, and then put it on the stove top and control the “flambe.” I was nervous and kind of threw the alcohol into the pan and that can cause unexpected stove fires etc. Luckily there wasn’t an issue but lesson learned! I’m sad to leave it on a sad note that I saw a new sore spot on my cat again. Perhaps it’s not the auto feeder and he’s just scratching with his back paws so aggressively? I don’t know! I wish I had a cat camera on him! Anyhow, it doesn’t seem to bug him but it sure is hard for this cat mom to watch. Will keep ya’ll posted. Have a great Tuesday! @Austina – Oh hmmm I’m not sure if Kim would venture to the shop I was talking about. If she works in the Domain area then I think she would go to the bigger Asian market up north. Both markets are great though! Awww hurray for Dottie meeting her other pals! I’m so excited about your upcoming cruise. Very exciting! @marcy – No apology necessary! I just didn’t want you to think I wasn’t responding back to you, my friend. I do the same as you and have Word opened on one side. Thank goodness for double monitors but it has spoiled me that when I have to switch to a laptop I feel a bit helpless sometime having to toggle and use my memory. Good luck getting your taxes turned in and enjoy that hair cut! Going for a different look? @missy – Oh wow, doubling the medicine doe seem like a big change but I like how confident the DR is and his approach. Hoping that is a good sign…. Sorry that you are going to so many medical appointments recently bug good luck to Greg getting his as well! Meow to the cats!
