Daily update, 10/6/2014 - 10/7/2014
Yesterday I went back to school for another quarter of college. On my way to school I heard a song on the radio that made me think of my grandfather and I ended up crying for a bit before class began. When I finally got into class it felt good to be back in the kitchen. I really needed to be back in the kitchen to distract my mind from the things that have been going on in my life. I am taking the garde manage' class. We learned how to pickle things and to cure meats. I volunteered to be our sou chef of the class. I never really get put into a position of leadership so I am a bit scared.
Today we smoked the meats we cured yesterday. We smoked bacon, canadian bacon, and pork tenderloin. Can you say yum? Unfortunetly I learned that being a leader makes everyone except a few people hate me. I really haven't done anything to make anyone dislike me but I hear them call me names behind my back, even this 68 year old woman is treating me bad. My job is simply to assign cleaning jobs to our class, make sure everything is cleaned and tidy before we go, and organize food in the fridge. I tell the class who is doing what and I get nasty looks. I never see anyone treat any other suos in other classes like this. It's upsetting but o well, what can I do.
