Let's Cook Together

Hoping your Thanksgiving holiday was filled with memorable moments along with delicious foods. After a challenging few weeks helping my dog recover from surgery, we decided to have a relaxing Thanksgiving at home with two close friends. Prince Charming and I cooked from Wednesday 2:00 to Thursday 2:00. A funny moment was early Thursday morning when I discovered that a chipmunk had eaten our pumpkin pie. Another was made and was quite possibly better than the first. Our dinner was divine (a few photos below).

Let's cook together! Below is my current Class Schedule:
