Taste Of Home Cooking School

For my birthday my wonderful Mother-in-Law got me tickets to the Taste of Home Cooking school. My friend Lisa came along with me. I had never heard of it before, so for those of you who haven't heard of it either, it is a show where a cook stands in front of a crowd of people a cooks a few recipes. While they are cooking these recipes, you have a recipe book with the recipes in front of you so you can follow along. They give you a whole bunch of cooking tips and also have a lot of prize giveaways. Unfortunately neither Lisa nor I won anything. I was kinda sad. They were giving away the things they had make and the dishes that came along with them. There was one thing that I wanted to win so bad, and when it came time to give that away, the person who won had a name that started with an "A". I was so sure it was going to be me. Anyways, the tickets that I got came along with a gift card to a restaurant at Thanksgiving Point(that's where the cooking show was at.) Lisa and I went a little early to walk around and see the vendors who were there before the show, and then went to eat at the restaurant. It was delicious! After we ate we went straight to the show. We got lucky because we were VIP's, which means we got to sit in the front row. The regular tickets are for first come first serve seats. It was nice to not have to save a seat. Lisa and I had a great time. If you ever have a chance to go, you should. Thanks Patty!
