Sharp Knives and Such

So this past Saturday I pulled on my clogs, buttoned up my coat, and began a dream

For the last few years I've wanted to attend culinary school. I even contemplated dropping out of BYU to do so. Luckily I didn't (because I wouldn't have met Steve if I had). But, now the time has come and I am so excited. It really is cool having a chef's coat and floppy hat.

Okay, so it's not really attractive, but it is cool. The first day of class went really well. We practiced sauteing, learned about sanitation, etc. As excited as I was it did overwhelm me; it was like this sudden shock of "oh yea, this is school. I'm in school again." But, it will be good. The coolest part is the knives.

Exhibit A

Exhibit B

So as you can tell it is pretty much fantastic. Thank you Steve for supporting me in my dream!


  1. That's so awesome Carolyn! I'm excited for our next meal at your guys place!

  2. I AM SO EXCITED FOR YOU!!!! You rock, Carolyn!

  3. So stoked for you! Culinary school and Carolyn just go together. Make sure you keep posting all the cool things you learn...some of us could use some good advice and tips.

  4. Wow, that's really cool. I'm with Royce--when are we invited to dinner?

  5. Oh my goodness, Carolyn!! I had no idea! That is so exciting! Good luck, you'll be great...can't wait to partake of the fruits of your labor. :) And the knives are pretty cool, too.
