Goals. Dreams. Aspirations.

Whew. Another holiday season is over and a new year has begun!!!! I baked cookies galore. I mailed cookies galore to people like grandpa, family gift exchange, and etc. They were chocolate peppermint cookies, my favorite gourmet chocolate thumbprint cookies AKA, Steve's Favorite Cookie, and molasses gingery cookies....
I am starting to teach 3 days a week. 2 days to 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders and one day to an after school high school program.
The 3rd,4th, and 5th graders is a healthy eating program. My menu is as follows; Day 1 Breakfast: Buckwheat Pancakes with maple syrup and fresh fruit and green smoothies to drink while making. Day 2: Vegetarian Sloppy Joe's with Whole Wheat Buns and Baked Sweet Potato Fries. Day 3: Kale Chips, Granola, and Hummus with Fresh Veggies.... Day 4 will be up to them!
I am so freaking excited teaching kids about healthier good food.... You've got to start somewhere. The thought of going back to school for a bachelors to be able to be a Home-EC teacher and possibly my own personal cooking school. Good food is what I love and saving the world is really what I want to do, so why not start with the young...

The Holidays are all about good food and company, appreciate what you have. The new year is to learn how to be better than you were in the last.

I want to cook more better for you food. Leave out so much processed stuff. I want to educate myself on Colorado and build a green house. Let the planning and educating begin. Big dreams start with a lot of work.
