This past Saturday I was lucky, blessed, thrilled (words really fail me here) to be included in a cooking lesson with Daisy Martinez at her home. As the day passed there were moments that made me laugh, gasp, and even sigh.
While on the outside I was fully enjoying each moment, what I had feared most waking up on Saturday was the unbearable. In the weeks and even final days before this cooking lesson, I felt the cloud of “what if”. Let’s face it, coming face to face with someone I admire so greatly was a scary thought. My big fear was that I’d embarrass myself, in one of two ways.
- I could spazz out dangerously in the kitchen (sharp knives, hot pots, etc.) or
- I could become an emotional mess, a babbling idiot or worse
These two things didn’t happen. My guardian angels were doing overtime, I tell you. What did I do? Cry while chopping onions. This was a Wordless Wednesday moment which I truly enjoyed. I hope the photographer forgives me, or leaves a comment so that this image is properly credited. I am grateful that the moment was captured. Thank you!
Later this week I will be sharing recipes and photos of the experience, including food we prepared. If you want a sneak peek, you can check out Daisy’s website – including event listings- her page on Facebook, and her videos on youtube, or her tweets on Twitter.
