That's right, the bolt cutters came out today. I was getting ready for baking, ranting about how I wished I could understand Chef Susie's marking criteria ( I really like her, I just don't get it sometimes). I got changed, threw everything in my locker, patted my pocket to make sure I had my keys (there was a reassuring jingle), then slammed and locked my locker. Halfway out, I stuck my hand in my pocket to discover that jingle was actually my measuring spoons (don't ask). So off I went to buy a new lock and cut the one I had. Sure enough, my keys were tucked safely in my purse....
Anyway, in baking itself, we had a fun day. Well I did at least. We made Streusel Kuchen, Banana Bread, Pretzels, Cheddar Chive Scones and worked on our Icebox Cookies. t the end, we got (i think) a 19!! Chef Susie never gave over 18... turns out someone complained about her marking. So now I can rant about the stupid school caving in to kids who think because they pay lots of money they should get good grades! (I use the term kids lightly ~ the woman who complained was well into her 40's). No pleasing me, eh?
Here is my stuff:
