Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity.
Voltaire

On Tuesday night I joined some of my favorite St. Louis people, my Tri Delta alum friends, at our local Schnucks grocery store for a cooking class. This is a newest Schnucks location and the one I shop at regularly. The store itself is beautiful and the fun part is that they have a great cooking school too!

The class we signed up for was themed around yummy things for summer parties. We had two chefs helping us and teaching neat tricks but we paired off and cooked everything ourselves. They had every kitchen tool and appliance under the sun so I was in heaven!

For the cost of a dinner out that we would have done anyway, it was such a great way to spend time with friends, learn some new stuff but also enjoy a great food that we made.

With Sarah, my dessert-making partner.

Susan and Katie manned the chicken wings.

Along with Kara they rocked it!

Our gorgeous Pina Colada Trifle (definitely the best thing made if I do say so myself!)

Poached shrimp with a variety of dipping sauces.

Our brilliant creation!
