    It’s so nice to have you back! 🙂 Wow you guys have really hit the ground running, but best to get stuck straight in right? Your plating is getting really great and the salad you made is right up my alley. I think those combinations of flavours would be really fresh but the avocado and mac nuts give it some depth and sticking power. Welcome back gorgeous.

    Ooh kombucha! We were just bottling ours a few minutes ago. Have fun with that.

    That’s pretty crazy some people are doing BOTH. But makes sense for time away from home, etc. There’s no way my body could handle that schedule.

    Your plating is so pretty and love all the colors of everything.

    Oooh, if you like macadamias, you’ll hopefully like a post I have coming up! 😉 But away from me…. that second wrap you’re makign is far more Jackson Pollock than preschool art! Also, what does cacao butter taste like plain? I’ve just started seeing it at health stores and am tempted, but think I want to experiment with coconut butter first 🙂

    So glad to see your enthusiasm is still strong, too! Yay Amber for 105 Queen!

    I love the lampshade design. I can’t wait to see how it turns out once dehydrated.

    I go in phases with citrus – but when it’s ridiculously cold out it sure can brighten a day!

    Wow those macnuts are HUGE!

    Yes, see, ever since I saw and read and found out what a SCOBY is, I have not touched Kombucha. It really grossed me out seriously. I would drink Synergy, I believe that is the name, but now I cannot touch it. Boo. Maybe someday I will go back.

    Nice to have you back! 🙂

    Hi Amber,

    Glad to hear and see you are enjoying Level II. Your salad looked beautiful. Can’t wait to see how the coconut-wrapped art projects turn out. I miss everyone from Level I and look forward to seeing all the things you’ll be learning.

    I got hooked on Kombucha once I got home, thanks to Bernardo & Young. 🙂

    Take care.

    That citrus dish looks like something I might enjoy. Love how great your food looks every time. Interested to see how the hearts turn out. Glad it’s been a smooth transition, honey. Smooches!

    Cool, I think I’d like to try making homemade kombucha someday now that I’ve realized I love it! Your citrus salad is so colorful and beautiful, I’d be all over that.

    I love kombucha, but I found out the hard way that I can’t keep it alive. Dead and moldy and I have no idea why. I washed my hands, kept in the dark, etc. :S Oh well.

    Congrats on level 2! I feel sorry for the one who is doing level one and 2 at the same time. I can’t imagine being in the kitchen for that long!
    I’ve never had kombucha, so I’m a little clueless there.
    Oh…I love the preschool art. :o)
    That citrus salad looks yummy!

    So excited for you!! Do you still have the same spot in the kitchen?
    Sending you love 🙂

    Love the presentation of the citrus fennel salad. And congrats on being savvy and taking Level 1 BEFORE level 2…I couldn’t imagine how exhausting it must be to go from 8am to 9pm!

    I love kombucha! I need to get a SCOBY so I can brew it myself. I had one once, but I forgot about it under the sink. I didn’t know I could save it so I threw it away. 🙁

    Wow – 8am-9pm! I guess I’ve done hours like that when I’ve worked as a chef, so maybe it’s good preparation, but with all that info overload, sounds totally crazy.

    Kombucha – was just making some myself today. Thinking of you back into that swing. Hope it goes well – what are you going to do with your days prior to class? I do hope you stay well-rested.


  15. athursdayschild has a long way to go and much to be thankful for.

    We have just recently started brewing our own kombucha. My husband drinks it religiously, me not so much I guess that I can tell healthy benefits from it. Do you notice benefits from it? My husband cut his hand and gives credit to Kombucha for it healing really quickly.

    Glad you’re adjusting to your different schedule.

    Also glad you were able to get right back into it.
    Your wrap yesterday looked awesome, sooo colorful.
    Neat new books too!!
    Have fun.

    I have oranges…I have grapefruit…I have avocados…I have macademia nuts… just need to get macademia oil (where do I get that? SuperTarget? health food store?)… what’s the recipe?? Looks yummy & I would never have thought to combine those flavors!
