Cooking Class at the Viking School!

I have always, always wanted to take a cooking class. Really, I'd love to freeze my life, go to culinary school, and then have my own cooking show like Giada, but since I'm far too practical to even think seriously about dropping everything and starting something new, a cooking class has been on the top of my list of fun things to try so I can pretend like I'm a spontaneous person who is following a dream. :) (Hel-LO run-on sentence)

So last Thursday, Matt and I headed down to the Viking School for an Italian-themed cooking class where we got to make homemade fettucini, spinach and ricotta ravioli, marinara, and alfredo. I was like a kid on Christmas morning! We had the best time! Our instructor was great, and the people in our class were so fun. Here are some pics from the night!

Studying :)

Kookie showing us how to chop an onion- I learned a new technique!

Todd- the master chef of the group!

Love the focused look. He was a natural! ;)

We also learned how to quickly dice fresh garlic- I may need to do a little how-to post to share what we learned!

The apron is a good look on him I think :)

I want to come home to this every day.

Rion and Kate got married 4 months ago- they are super cute!

Matt stole a shot of me in my student mode- haha, I'm such a nerd

Getting ready to juice the lemon- I want one of these!

So cheesing- but this is pretty much what I looked like the whole night- haha

Kookie and Todd

Carrie and Mackay

Kate and Rion

Taste test!
