Since I was in the lovely state of Colorado over Valentine’s Day, visiting with my wonderful lady friends (some of them at least). I missed my husband over Valentines Day, that’s for sure, and so when I got back, we celebrated a week later. David had signed us up for a “Green” Cooking Class at our local Charleston Cook’s. It was mostly vegetarian and David called ahead to make sure that the things that weren’t could be modified for me (so thoughtful 🙂 ). So sure enough, we got there and it was like vegetarian heaven rolled into a cooking class. Such a fun date night–dinner, wine (after hot things and knives are safely stored away), and really good company. And you know who led our class? I’ll give you a hint. This guy’s day-job is the antithesis of ‘vegetarian’. That’s right local Columbian’s, it was Ramone from 2 Fat 2 Fly (a local food truck that serves up stuffed chicken wings). Who knew he could do green’s so well? Must be that southern blood.Ramone was the best teacher–he was funny, engaging and we learned a lot! (Like how to REALLY cut an onion, and things like that). Here are some action shots from our class, David and I were responsible for a minestrone appetizer. And for the final products… So fun and delicious. Oh, and the OTHER best part? When you do a class, you get 10% off in the store afterwards, so we got a couple goodies for the house. How can you not shop in a store with so many cook kitchen gadgets, ya know?
