School Update Weeks 3 - 5

The ServSafe exam went well. There are only two questions that I feel iffy about out of 90. I will get the results on the 27th. I also received my Magmt certificate. Yea for me! And now we are into the basics of cooking. It is an intense amount of material to cover in a short period of time. We cover as many as three chapters in one session. Uggghhh...

The flu made it's presence known the last week of classes. I made it through Monday's class, no problem. Tuesday was a different matter. Bleh! So, I missed three days due to illness but maintained email contact with my instructor who assured me that even with the three missed days I was still in the 90% for my grade. Mom picked up my uniforms for me on Wednesday. We got them early so that we can press and hem them in preparation for going to Poverello House on the 15th of January. As a class, we will be preparing upwards of 800 meals in the Poverello kitchen to be served to the homeless that day. We will get to draw duties and go over the menu the day before.

Tht's all for now...

Week 2 - Parasites, viruses, and bacteria, oh, my!

We finished our Management/Supervisory unit this week. The final for this section was written by the American Culinary Federation as a Certification Final. Once passed you would receive a certificate for a 30 hour Hospitality Supervisory course. We took our final on Wednesday and everyone in class did really well. I got the best grade in the class at 98%. Pretty cool!

We pounded some chests on Thursday (CPR) and earned a HeartSaver certificate. Now we are into our ServSafe unit. Parasites, microbes, and viruses, oh, my! :o) All sorts of wonderful information about bodily fluids, toxins, and bacterias! Whoo-hoo!

We will finish that unit on Wednesday or Thursday. Too sleepy to remember at this moment. I hope life is going well for all of you out there.
