The class started @ 9:30am
Eileen, the instructor, brought in herbs from her own garden
The sage was huge (I have sage envy)
We got to sample Gazpacho
It was awesome, and I'm craving it even now
This was made using the Vitamix Pro Blender
They have 2 models - pricing starts @ $449.95
(This just got added to my wishlist)
This corn chowder was fabulous as well.
Everything was made using fresh ingredients
Since I couldn't afford the Vitamix Professional Blender,
I bought these very much needed gadgets instead -
chocolate balsamic vinegar
The class was really fun!
