Enrollments have been made and, as I creep closer to the first day of school, I’m starting to become more and more excited about what’s about to come my way!  I found a friend that has participated an many of the classes that I will be taking this semester and beyond, so I’m glad to have some first-hand experience to help me.  If not helpful, at least the advice soothes my nerves.

Today, I’m going to get as much of the supplies as I can from the school bookstore.  I’m going to use government vouchers to get everything, so I hope it will be enough and work out.  In preparation, I’ve been making and compiling successful recipes that may come in handy later, although the sample menus which this culinary department serves does not come close to what I’m cooking in the kitchen.   The menus seem to have classic french cuisine with very technical components to dishes, so I doubt that my little cookbook is going to stand a chance…  I see recipes being covered by better recipes in the future.

I don’t have a recipe to share today, but will post last night’s “Late Night Brownies”, which Mike made from scratch.  We have been keeping a baker’s pantry, so when Mike’s muchies called out he was prepared to fight back with homemade brownies and they sure were tasty!!

This is understandably off-topic, but I did have one more bit that I wanted to mention today:

Boy, it sure can be tiring to see the demise of any ONE individual, such as one Tiger Woods.  The media has beat this poor man into the ground, but that’s not enough, is it?  Yesterday, I read that Woods was taking Ambien before sex with one of his mistresses, because “that Ambien haze” really did it for him.  I don’t know what’s going on with the poor man, but I don’t need to know and neither does the rest of America.  I know that I’m just perpetuating the story when I add one more hit to their steadily-moving ticker of website visitors, so I’ll vow to NOT look for the rest of the day.
Either way, I think this is going to be one of the saddest stories of 2010 and I don’t think that Woods will walk away unscathed from this, but I suppose that only time will tell.  Despite his suffering, I’ve got a pretty good Tiger Woods joke to leave you with today.

Here goes:  What’s the difference between a Cadillac and a golf ball?    Tiger can drive a golf ball 400 yds.
