Homeschooling myself

Ok so I have to say I really love to get feedback on my blog. Comments are always appreciated. This week I got a comment from Heather over at Gentle Art of Chaos giving me some great advice about creating my own course of study.

I love to cook and bake. Culinary school is something I know I would love but as I said in my post HERE it is not the best option for our family right now.

Like I said Heather had some fantastic suggestions and I am super excited about sharing with you all what I will be doing. I have to make a few decisions first off. Do I want to be super relaxed in the whole thing?Setting loose goals. Like trying one new dish and one new cooking technique a month. Or do I want to be more specific and organized?Writing out a whole course of study modeled after the course I was considering taking at the local culinary school.

I do know that I plan on including my kids in all of this. All three of the older kids LOVE to help out in the kitchen. I know I really want to broaden my horizons as far as technique goes. I know I want to explore lots of different cooking styles and philosophies too.

I’ll be sure to keep you all posted as my plans solidify and I get started on things!! Lots of pictures to come! Oh and what good culinary school doesn't have a uniform?? Here is a picture of the new apron I’m buying for the occasion!

Love it! And matching oven mitt to boot - can't get any better than that. I'm excited to see your plan. I'm proud of you for making your dreams happen and including your family in it.

Sounds like fun! I love to cook also but sometimes it can be a chore.
