Weekly Meal Plan and a Cooking Class

Yesterday my brother and I went to UrbanChef for a knife cutting class. I thought this would be an awesome thing for us after reading this article by the lovely Mel.

The class was two hours and covered things like choosing a knife, caring for your knife, and of course cutting techniques. We covered how to cut things like: celery, carrots, bell peppers, onions, tomatoes, cucumbers, citrus fruit (like lemons, oranges, ect), core fruit (like apples and pears) and fresh herbs. I by no means am a pro but I feel so much more confident around a knife and cutting board now. The instructor gave us some really simple tips that made cutting things so much easier, faster and the same size.

If you like to cook or want to try to start liking to I would HIGHLY suggest searching around for a class near you. They are a great bang for you buck and really make the “boring” part of cooking a lot quicker!

Now onto the food for the coming week. I’m currently reading It Starts With Food from the duo of Whole9 and the book has a great meal map from Melissa Joulwan (see she must be awesome). I love this book because its not recipes per se but instead suggestions and ideas. Melissa and Dallas say that they want to teach you how to fish rather than just give you the fish. I love it. So after all that blabbing…all my meals are from this book minus one!
