|I killed those bad boys myself|
The theme of the class was "Dinner and a Move: Julie and Julia" which was awesome since Julie and Julia was based on a blog...how apropos.
It was a 5 hour class 6pm-11pm and there were about 16 of us in the class. Our instructor talked for about an hour and told us what we would be making: beef bourginon, lobster thermidor, artichokes with hollandaise sauce, parsley buttered noodles, and lemon souffle. Yum!
Each group was responsible a certain dish/dishes. My friend, Jen, and I were in the lobster thermidor group which meant we had to kill a lobster. That's right we had to take a live lobster, put a knife between it's eyes and push down. Hard! It was one of the freakiest things ever, especially since they keep moving for a while afterwards.

I was very intimidated at first, I'm a cook but I'm certainly no chef and in my kitchen I'm only feeding me, Andy and Isabella so if I mess up a recipe, no big deal we just order a pizza or eat left overs, here I (and my team) were responsible for everyones food. It was just so out of my comfort zone, but I had a great time and I left with all the recipes. I can't wait to try them at home AND I'm ready to start looking at another class!
On a side note, how awesome is it that someone's blog got made into a movie?! If they ever made my blog into a movie I'm going on record now saying that I think Megan Fox should play me. Just sayin.
