I could go on and on about how great community college is. I went to a really fancy culinary school, (it's a very long story) but a lot of bad things were going on, so I switched to the community college. The teachers were so loving and great and actually cared about us students. They found a job for me. They taught me so many valuable, practical skills, and I didn't break the bank doing it. I met so many diverse people. I took the most amazing wine class that I'll never forget. I went to Guatemala. I took a spanish class and learned salsa dancing. All thanks to the community college.
Next up soapmaking. I did get milk from my farmer friend. I spent some time pasteurizing, measuring and freezing it. The community college class gave me confidence to tackle this and go ahead and not be afraid of lye. Now I just need a few more supplies and I'll be ready to go with that.
I have some projects in the works that I can't share quite yet.
I'm going to do a little post soon on how our local eating is going. I'll share the connections we've made.
The sun is shining and I'm happy. I'm going to enjoy it. Hopefully you're all enjoying your weekend.
