COOKING CLASS AT THE VILLA

 The cooking class this morning was a very fun and tasty time.  The appetizers were a big success, and the carrot cake cupcakes with cream cheese frosting somehow disappeared!!
 One of the ladies brought a large bowl of fresh fruit and it just completed our brunch.

 The clubhouse is the perfect place to hold a cooking class as it has a full kitchen and a very comfortable room.

I made the cupcakes yesterday so they could get the taste of the carrot cake I was baking.  Here I'm just getting ready to make the cake.  While the cake baked (45 minutes) I demonstrated the appetizers.

My dearest took the pictures with my new camera and also enjoyed watching and tasting....

I love that I'm given this opportunity.   I enjoy doing it, and gives those who attend a little extra social time, some hands on teaching and then some tasty eating.  Win~Win.

    What a great opportunity you have at the villa... for so many things. I love that you and Don have found this enclave. And that you are able to share so much with others!

    1. Wish you were close enough to join us. I make trades....Sometimes breakfast is carrot cake. And then I'm good the rest of the day. Some days lunch is a piece of pie...and sometimes dinner is a no no too. But not all in the same day...HaHa and I've learned to do the small plate small potions MOST OF THE TIME. But thanks for the compliment. I do have to work at it.

    1. I have quite a collection of aprons, and several of the gals have cats, so I chose that one. Most of them are seasonal so it's fun to use them at different times of the year. I have an old "standby" that hangs in my kitchen.

  8. You really do live in a wonderful place. It's not too noisy, the people seem friendly, you have "ministries", and it's beautiful besides. And they keep it neat and clean too. God is good.

You can see that you are totally in your environment too. How truly beautiful you look too with that marvelous hair and lovely Italian complexion! :)

    --Um, I don't think there is much "somehow" in that equation, really. :)
