One of the sweetest, nicest things EVER happened to me yesterday.
To preface, one of my goals for next year is to become a better cook. I absolutely love baking and trying out different recipes, but with cooking I know a handful of meals and that’s where it ends. I think it’s because baking has clear, concise instructions on what to do. But in cooking? There are no rules! There is no structure! Anything goes! It’s a bit intimidating for me.
Anyway. I randomly visit Groupon, a coupon deal of the day website for specific cities. Yesterday they had a fantastic deal: Nova Personal Chef’s Cheap and Easy in the Kitchen. For $35 (regularly $70), you learn how to cook three meals under a fantastic chef at The Washington Club. Saweeet.
Of course being the social networking expert I am (ha!) I went to Twitter and tweeted about the deal, hoping someone else may be able to use this fantastic offer. About an hour later I come back to the Twittersvere to find this:
Forest, a fellow blogger, bought me that class. Can you believe it?? I received a confirmation email and immediately my eyes filled with tears. It was quite possibly the kindest and most generous things anyone has ever done for me. And what a testament to how awesome the blogging community can be!
So here’s my public thank you to one of the kindest bloggers out there. I promise to use the generosity you showed me to bless others around me.
How awesome is that!! Enjoy!
What a wonderful gift!!
Awww that is one of the sweetest stories ever! Go Forest! You gotta send him some baked goods that you learn how to make!! :)
This is a very beautiful story. :) Your meals will be filled with Christmas Love yay!
That is amazing. Let us know what you end up cooking up in the kitchen. Becoming a better chef is one of my resolutions for 2010 and I’ll be blogging about it as well. I actually got an early start a couple of days ago and made an entire meal of rice, beans, macaroni, pork and brownies for my family! I’m looking to making more gourmet things as the meal I made is considered pretty “standard” fare.
How generous is that! Wow.
Oh wow, that is awesome. Go forest!
That is adorable. You rock Forest!
wow! that’s such a sweet story. i love it when people spread joy during the holiday season. enjoy your class. can’t wait to hear all about it :)
