Last week I mentioned two ways I wanted to prep for the summer. Here are two more things we are thinking about and getting ready for this summer:
1. Virtual Cooking Classes
Our favorite Virtual Class this past year was a cooking class that we took several times. We did some basic skills for beginners, fun themed classes, and even baking classes throughout the year:
Our cooking instructor, Chef Kim, has some classes already up for the summer which we are going to check out. There are options for kid’s cooking and baking classes, and even classes for adults who want to expand their skills: Around the World and Date Night classes. You can find her website here: Monkey Wolf Rooster. She is in the Eastern Time Zone, so you can choose what works for your schedule based on the time difference and your summer plans. You receive the recipes and ingredients that you need to buy and get ready during the week before the class and then you join on Zoom. I highly recommend it!
This one is happening even before the Summer starts because we are going camping next week! I have not camped on solid ground in more than a decade. When we lived in Dubai we would often go camping for one night in the sandy desert. It was such a fun experience and you would often see camels as you were getting your tent ready.
Next week we are going camping for the first time since we have been back and we are so excited! We hope to do some more over the summer. This first trip will be helpful to know if we have what we need for ground camping 🏕. My son really wants to sit in his camping chair and watch the animals, we all really want to enjoy a fire and make some ‘s’mores, and my husband and I are excited to do a Potjie next week and some other cast iron cooking over the fire!
After this trip, we’ll come up with some more camping plans for the rest of the summer!
