Mama is cooking!!!

We only have a few weeks left, and I am finally getting into a routine!!!!  When we decided to move to London. I knew I didn’t want the girls in school full time because I wanted to be able to explore London with girls in toe.   But I also wanted to have a few days for myself to avoid "burn out" and have fun. The girls go to a nursery two days a week, and I’m supposed to use this time to myself. However, I ended up using this time to clean, do laundry and run family errands. But one day I started to fit in a workout and from there I started to claim my days off.  I’ve started to take cooking classes. 

I started to take cooking classes because I’m not the most confident cook. I can cook a few staple West Indian dishes, but that’s it. I have no idea how to cook European, Asian or American foods.  I’m so bad that I can’t even sauté a piece of fish correctly. Thus following a recipe is very difficult for me because I don’t know how to do the basics.  My goal while in London is to do something for myself that I think is fun and will help me develop as a person. I love to entertain so I decided I would take some basic cooking classes.  So far, I’ve taken three classes,  (Thai) Coconut Prawn Curry, (French ) Chicken with Tarragon and Creme Fraiche, and (Spanish) Cod with Butterbean and Chorizo.

Below is a picture of my favorite dish and the link to the recipe: 
Cod with Butterbean and Chorizo. This was my favorite because it was so simple to make and so yummy!!!!
