As part of my 2 year paper anniversary, my darling husband got us cooking classes!
No, I did not take offense, I think I'm a pretty good cook, but this is something I always wanted to do. I pictured drinking wine, meeting other couples, and messing around at my own kitchen station.....
Well, it wasn't quite that, but I loved it none the less! I sipped on some cola, talked to some couples around my parents age and sat at my station to soak up knowledge on all things saucy! It was a good time.
I definitely had Viking and Le Crueset lust, lol
We made some yummie food based off of 5 sauces, but that didn't stop me from stopping for dessert at two, yes TWO dessert hot spots in Andersonville (Chicago neighborhood on the north side).

Did I mention before cooking class we hit up the Thrill list famed "Honey Butter Chicken"? Yum :)
Strolling around the neighborhood we saw some fabulous "ugly sweater" cakes too!
I have been working hard at surprising Chris with my "12 Days of Christmas"!! I wasn't sure what to get, so I turned to one of my fav blogs to read, Lauren Conrad, and I was jazzed to get a response!
It has been quite fun! I leave a trail of elves and a little treat each day! Of course I had to write it out to plan it!
