Pete and I had an all too rare date night last week (more to come).

But before we get to that and it’s too late for y’all to catch the movie, we recommend finding your local theater, grabbing a bag of popcorn, wrangling your significant other and enjoying this gem.

yays: It’s like a French “My Fair Lady” with a heroine who possesses an Elizabeth Bennet-esque attitude and a clumsy/quirky charm.  Need I say more?
nays: French-style sexy-time scene.  Keep the kiddos at home, folks.

{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!
