Don't laugh, okay?

I want to go to pastry school.

I always said I wanted to make my living in food. I said I wanted to be a chef, and I probably told a hundred people that, but I realize that I like baking even better than cooking.

And so far, I don't have a strategic plan for achieving this. Other than checking every baking book out of the public library, that is.

One of my neighbors is out of the country. He apparently didn't tell anyone and nobody can get a hold of him, so they're not going to fumigate in here, after all. Not just yet, anyway. All I know is, they better give us more than two weeks notice next time. Prepping for this kind of thing is a serious pain in the ass, especially this time of year.

I think I'm going to have my sister-in-law and the kids over for Thanksgiving. My brother's going to be gone and I would feel weird knowing they were by themselves. Diane likes turkey, though, so I'll have to dig up some good recipes. Maybe I'll borrow my neighbors' turkey fryer.

Hmmm. What else?

Oh. Alex says "cow". And he plays "so big".

I think I love "Alias". Like I need to get addicted to another show.

I'm having fun doing The Transmission, but holy jeez, is it tiring. I can't even believe the amount of mail we've gotten. It's staggering.


Funny you mention being a chef - I've got a friend who's been planning to attend the culinary arts program at KCC. (That was an option for me, in fact, before the Masters programs came calling.) I think there's also a website here in town (email me for the URL - the name eludes me; I think it's Hawaii Gourmet something) that holds one-day cooking classes with chefs - don't know if they have pastry, though. Maybe you could also intern/apprentice at a bakery, hotel, or wedding-cake company when the kids are older?

In any case, wishing you well!

Good for you! My love is in cooking. I retired, still I cook. I always wanted to baked but never mastered it. If your heart is in it -- you will become a Master of it!

Hugs and kisses to Alex, Zac and Katie!

I have a friend who recently began at KCC's culinary arts program with the intention of becoming a pastry chef. This is a few years after her getting her bachelor's degree.

I can totally see you doing this.

Sounds great to me. I will totally volunteer to support your efforts, especially in the tasting dept.

T and I are also on our own for Thanksgiving, so if you need any more guests we can volunteer to bring something (except the turkey, I don't know what to do with those either).

And I promise that once it isn't a zoo around here I am coming over. Really. Maybe even this Thursday, if you're not busy- I'll give you a call.

I didn't even bust a grin. I'm like, Yeah! You go for it with baking and pastry or whatever you want to do. Baking has always been my first love, buy getting to eat the results is the sweetest..
