Looking forward to Lunch

I recently had the opportunity to substitute at our county Vo-Tech School in a supervisory role for two students.  I was pleasantly surprised when I got to go to the Culinary Arts classroom.

It was Chinese week,  mmmmmm. Food on the menu was General Tso Chicken (one of our family favorites) and Pork Fu Yung.  The part of the class I was with was making General Tso’s.  What Fun!  We collected and measured ingredients, cooked and cleaned up.  I enjoyed talking to the students and their chef/teacher, learning about their passion for cooking and baking. The kids even got to take their food home with them in to-go containers.

You might imagine how I felt – like I was in a candy store. The dry storage was a large room with lots of things,  the bag of chile peppers was like a big pillow there were so many; the walk in coolers had lots of bounty; their were bunches of sauces and vinegars, and condiments.  The stoves were humongous.

The best part — they serve breakfast and lunch Tuesday through Friday.  We are so THERE when you guys get home from college, maybe even a few times!

I brought the recipe home.  We can compare with the recipe Jen makes — should provide good kitchen entertainment for the family:)

About Linda D

The kids are grown. I am creating and living the life I love. I do miss our family dinnertime conversations, especially Honest Wednesdays, or Reality Sundays, somethin' like that, always a laugh or a cry or look into each individuals perspective and life experiences. To me, that is what FAMILY is about, sharing the joy of being connected to each other! So even when the kids live away from home, one is 630 miles away, I strive to keep connected, with love!
