After a long day...

After a long day, I love a good bowl of soup and some ice cream for dessert.  And I love it when the kids rub my feet while I read them Nancy Drew.  I got all of these things tonight!

I did a fun "Fall Soups and Salads" private class tonight at the co-op for the Junior League.  It was a great group of ladies!  I made Chipotle Squash-Apple Bisque, Black-Eyed Pea-Nut Stew, Beet Salad with Creamy Maple-Balsamic Dressing, and the kale salad I posted yesterday.  Yum!  I'm eating the leftover bisque right now.

Teaching cooking classes is so satisfying.  I think that when we get a better teaching kitchen at the co-op, I'd like to teach a lot more classes.  I'm usually a pretty shy person, but somehow when I'm talking about the food I just can't shut up.  

For dessert I picked up a pint of So Decadent Peanut Butter Zigzag ice cream.  I'm about to dig into that right now!

I think you just described my fantasy life. Teaching cooking, eating soup, then ice cream, then reading and a foot rub. Okay, I'm jealous.
