Cooking Class

I teach a cooking class at our co-op. Every Monday we make dinner for 10-13 families. I have 8 students which make up 5 families. But the board members also buy a meal. We prepare most of the food in class, and the kids(teenagers) have homework every week. I have made them do things like chopping an onion, boil and debone a chicken, and many more. Totally gross things you no like touch a RAW chicken. We have had such a good time. These teenagers are a joy to teach and be around. I find it funny sometimes, that usually teenagers are hard, emotional meanies. These home schooled kids are different. Do they get upset? Of course they are human. Are they emotional? Well didn't you and me have raging hormones. But still there is a difference. They have R-E-S-P-E-C-T. Don't make me break out into a song because I will. They really do, they are young don't get me wrong but they have a good head on their shoulders and I expect great things from them. I have the best helper her name is Shala the kids and I think she is Awesome. Also we could not do as great a job with out the amazing kitchen we have the privilege of using at United Methodist Church. Enjoy these snap shots of my WONDERFUL students. And if you ever see them on the road, ask them to tell you what AU JUS means!!

You just go ahead and BREAK into song...i'll even join you. I'm all for teens with R-E-S-P-E-C-T.
And while you're at it, you could teach me how to debone a chicken too!
Have you taught them the secret to perfect, fresh tortillas yet?
