Saturday was my last training run with the CARA winter marathon training group, and despite still feeling crappy, i was super happy to have one last run with the crew. I think waking up before dawn and running in freezing temps every saturday really brings people together.
|One of our first runs together!|
Our cooking class was from 10am to 2pm, so we were up bright and early on Sunday morning and ready to drink red wine!
|Breakfast of champions!|
A rustic french countryside chicken stew
All of this of course accompanied by 8,000 baguettes.
I have never really done any french cooking before, so i learned how to chop properly, and a lot about sauces, and french techniques.
The shallots were brutal, i was crying so hard from the smell that the chef thought i had cut a finger off.
The one thing that amazed me about french cooking was the amount of butter. Holy crap do the french eat a lot of butter. After leaving the class all i could do was nap! I don't think i normally consume that much butter in a month. It was delicious though.
I hope your weekend was also quite tasty, and that you felt better than i did and hopefully got more miles in! (although i am feeling much better thanks to all that butter and sleep. The french know what they are doing!!)
