January pursuits are minimal as I am basically tidying up all initiatives started in the fall:
- cleaning up the back end of this website. I have learned a great deal from Chris, and from the countless hours spent re-formating the information from my old site.
- entering all of my Christmas Baking recipes
- initiating liaisons between SFE member and young chefs at NAIT as well as other SFE initiatives:
- Sylvan Star fieldtrip
- membership initiative
- Old Strathcona Farmer’s Market (all markets?) tables… (not this month)
- training the chefs at the CookBook Company Cooks (Gail Norton’s store) in Calgary where I have placed a Thermomix machine to teach them on how to use it in theirÂ classes
- writingÂ my school report cards.
February was a rather political month for me:
- I joined a national group called Bloggeraid and campaigned for HO2pe for Haiti
- I became involved in supporting the GEA’s position regarding incorporating a local sustainable food supply system into the city’s 10 year Municipal Development Plan
March opened up opportunities I had not imagined: IMPOSSIBLE IS NOTHING
- The TEDx Edmonton conference was a huge highlight: sensational, inspirational, and great connecting with so many amazing Edmontonians
- The Edmonton Foodie Meetup was also a fun event for me as I had not connected with many of us in the Edmonton Blogosphere, and it was so wonderful to do that
- The Date with David Adjey that Diane Begin from NAIT invited me to was a really wonderful opportunity
- Two students from Kate Chegwin School won at the Edmonton Slow Food Grilled Cheese Olympics which I truly had not imagined, or expected
- I actually almost succeeded at Mastering the Art of the elusive French Macaroon: Take Three
- and, I helped Teresa, a friend of mine, learn how to use her Thermomix machine after not using it for the three years she owned it, so I was thrilled about that!
- London – >>>>> yet to come!
