What’s cooking Doc?

It has been a couple days since I posted- but the things that I have been creating are for CHA so…I can’t share right now 🙂 But…here are some photos of our cookery course we vistited today. Jim and I love to cook, so this was one of my Christmas Presents to him and it was fun to spent time together and to eat really yummie food 🙂

Es ist schon einige Tage her, dass ich  was geposted habe, aber die Dinge, die ich zuletzt kreiert habe, sind für die CHA, also kann ich grad nix zeigen 🙂 Aber…hier sind ein paar Photos von unserem Kochkurs heute. Jim und ich lieben es zu kochen, dies war also eines meiner Weihnachtsgeschenke für ihn und ich hatte viel Spaß Zeit zusammen zu verbringen und etwas richtig leckeres zu essen 🙂

It was a good and fun and yummie experience though my troubled stomach didn’t take it too good. But oh well – at least I left the house today 🙂

Es war ein gutes und spaßiges und nahrhaftes Erlebnis, obwohl mein kranker Magen leider nicht zu gut mit allem klarkam – aber wenigstens habe ich heute mal das Haus verlassen 🙂
