At The Blink Of An Eye

This week went by crazy fast. TGIF! I am in a particularly great mood today because #1 the cooking class I went to with my mom went really well and I enjoyed every second of it. The best part was that it was a vegetarian cooking class so I could actually taste everything! The menu consisted of…


Chilled Cream Avacado


Rolled zuchinni ribbons with herbed goat cheese, mint, and arugula.

Caprese: Tomato, mozzarella, basil, salt, pepper, olive oil Avacado, grapefruit, and arugula salad

Main Dish

Asian Marinated Tofu with soba noodles



Passion fruit trifle with strawberries and mascarpone ( we used heavy cream instead due to lack of mascarpone )

Everything tasted great, and my #1 favorite was the marinated tofu. The trifle was pretty darn good as well…So since this class ended up being so enjoyable, my mom and I will be getting a little adventurous and attend the next ‘cooking class’…only we won’t really be cooking because it will be a raw foods class. I don’t have much experience with raw foods so I am definitely looking forward to learning more about it!

A few other reasons for my good mood this morning…well as you might know Fridays are usually my least favorite day of the week because of a certain class that up until today involved what seemed to be Richard Simmons impersonation lessons. To my relief the Aerobics part of the class is over and today we get to move on to spinning. Finally, something I am looking forward to…oh and another good mood factor that I almost forgot about. Next week is SPRING BREAK! There won’t be any crazy nights, hangovers, or travels to Mexico for this old lady though. My idea of a good time is running, relaxing, and cooking.

If you are somewhere near the Newcastle area or are passing through I highly recommend taking a pit stop at Newcastle Produce, or taking a class from Chelsea Federwitz <---check out her blog for more info.



  1. That menu looks amazing! Especially the soup. I wanna try it!

    I'm so happy things are going wonderful for you! Yay for Spring Break! I'm looking forward to hearing how spinning is:)

  2. Wow that looks like a fantastic menu!

  3. I loved the class and can only dream of having a kitchen like Newcastle Produce with every product you need at your fingertips. You can cook as much as your heart desires as we have to make use of your talents while you are here. The thought of you being gone in a few months, maybe even forever, breaks my heart. We are too close, but I have to follow the direction God wants for you, I'm trusting Him. Love you!
