Winner, winner, chicken dinner!!  Thursday was the 3rd class of “Cooking With A Southern Soul” and just like the other two, we had a great time.  Cooking, talking, laughing and learning about food & new flavors….what could be better?  I love my sweet, quirky, cute students and they have inspired me in ways I didn’t think possible.


This sessions theme was “Think OUTSIDE the Lunch Box” and the menu included chicken tenders, Sunshine Fruit Salad, Pasta with a PRO (protein) and Couscous with feta and veggies.  The clear winner of the night – THE CHICKEN!  Here’s what we did….
