Last night, I taught a cooking class for the first time in years . And it was so much fun!!
I actually get asked to teach cooking classes pretty often, and cater, both of which I have decided I don’t enjoy all that much. But this one was for my church, as part of these cool “institutes” we do quarterly. And they are awesome . So I agreed to do it. :)
Basically, anyone in the community can volunteer to teach a class on something they love for these institutes — be that stand-up comedy, parenting, car maintenance, literature, running, personal finance, yoga, you name it. I had the chance to sit on a panel this week for an institute on the Enneagram, which made me ridiculously excited. But then last night, I took my turn as one of 4 people to teach part of an institute on “cooking”, which was equally exciting. Because we made a Mexican feast …in one hour. And then sat down around the table and chatted the night away. My favorite.
