|This is the only picture I took all weekend!|
Eric and I spent Christmas up in WA and had a great time with both sides of the family! We spent Christmas Eve with the Francos and Christmas Day with the Vander Pols. It was great to see everyone! I was lame and didn't take any pictures. :( Maybe I'll borrow some from the awesome photographers of our family.
Here are the last few things that I made at school
|Lemon and Blueberry Pastry|
|My first Croissants|
|My first Pain au Chocolat (Chocolate Croissants)|
|Apple and Cherry Danishes|
|A Tetes (means head...they look like sheep to me)|
|My Pithivier practical (looks a lot better than my first)|
|Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Bread|
|failed Panettone (the formula we used in class was a little off)|
My final Croissants and Pain au Chocolat. My teacher said I should be proud of these. :) I was, only after she said that though.
I really liked this last class and learned a lot. I now have a great appreciation for breads, how pretty they can be and how much work they are to produce. :)
My next class is International Patisserie, Cake Formula and Assembly. I will keep you posted!
