Every Chocoholics to be

...right here.. at the Notter School with Chef Ewald's and Chef James.
For the past week; I've been rising early; eager and excited about the next amazing 7 hours of decadent chocolates and mouthwatering pralines. On the way out; I skip my usual morning breakfast... making a mental note about the many chocolates I'll be tasting in a couple of hours. I know.. i know...bad idea...but *shrug* 2 weeks of candies for breakfast wouldn't break my diet would it? hehe.. I'm in my happy place. I'm in denial.
An intoxicating aroma of sugary rich cocoa greets me as I make my first enthusiastic steps through the door. I bid both my handsome chefs good morning; and begin pulling chairs down in anticipation of a day filled with new enlightening discoveries about chocolate and it's mysteries.
The most difficult part of the day for me would be my attempts to refrain from licking my fingers and palms clean! *grin* It's SOoo very hard to resist! Wash my hands?!?! waste all that delicious chocolate!!? My heart breaks at the thought.

Pictures will have to be it for today guys... Chef James dropped an evil test on us tomorrow morning and I need to study! I really don't understand why this part of the world can't just get themselves into metric already! Come on guys! Move with the times! Throw out those confusing ounces and pounds! *laughs* It really is a pain for me to learn quarts and gallons... I feel 60 just saying it. tsktsk.. :P
I know I've been a little behind on the updates on class lately but life's been a little hectic for me the past couple of weeks... I've been trying to catch up with more 'American' experiences and travels before end of June. I'll be leaving soon...*tear*
Guess who which lucky girl will be in Vegas tommorow?
