{On the Docket: August 2014}

Is there anybody else out there who can’t believe it’s August already?  holy smokes.

Well, it’s here.  We’re only 4 months away from another Christmas (huzzah!) and us Dallasites are enjoying a nice, cool summer.
And to celebrate the hopeful coming of fall and a summer that doesn’t make me want to kill myself…we’ll be partaking of a LOT of food (as per usual).

{Sur La Table: French Cooking Class}

food food food food food!

I stinkin’ love food!  Thai, chocolate, a good steak, chowder, fried chicken, or a big ‘ole dish of cheese fries.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not the Food Network watching, recipe book reading, fancy restaurant eating foodie.  Pete and I like to pretend, but at our core, we’re really just fake foodies who’s taste buds aren’t developed enough to be picky.  But that doesn’t stop us from enjoying cooking at home inspired by various cookbooks, Pinterest treats, or passed down family recipes.

All that to say, sweet Pete got me an awesome anniversary gift…a cooking class! This wasn’t any cooking class, French-inspired recipes involving salmon, pastries, and chocolate tarts.  Watch out, Julia Childs!
