We Cooked, We Ate, We Laughed...

Hey friends! I have been a bit busy lately... lots of shopping and organizing for student teaching... LOTS of shopping ;) , but I am back to reminisce about mine and Greg's fun date night this summer.  I mentioned that I surprised Greg with a cooking class for his birthday in my post about a DIY ticket shadow box... well we went, we cooked, we ate... and we laughed at the snooty serious people in the class (luckily we found another couple with the same sense of humor as us)! So, what did we cook?

Our Menu:
Appetizer: Grilled Pancetta-Wrapped Shrimp Skewers
Main Course: Rosemary-Stuffed Flank Steak with Shaved Parmesan
Side: Grilled Zucchini with Parsley- Almond Pesto
Dessert: Caramel Apple Grilled Pizza

The class was held at Sur La Table in Canton, CT.  There were about 16 participants and we all worked together in groups of 8 to create the meal... and of course we brought wine (wish they provided the drinks).  If I were to ever do this again I would want to go with friends because, as I said, some of the people were just too serious... I think cooking and date nights should be fun!  The food was really yummy... I will definitely be cooking flank steak, making pesto, and working with skewers again!  Here are the recipes so you can try them at home.
