I feel a little like I'm running away from home. I packed my bags this morning just after Mike left for work and I won't see him until tomorrow night. I trudged up to work with a suitcase and backpack over-filled for one night away. I'm heading south for what promises to be great day with my mom. She's treating me to an Open Hearth Cooking Workshop at the Read House in Historic New Castle. She's gone for the past few years and has always enjoyed it. I was particularly interested in going this year because this year, the focus is on my adopted hometown, Philadelphia. We'll learn cooking techniques, participate in a discussion about Philadelphia cooks and cookbook authors, and finally feast! No idea what to expect food-wise, but I think the experience itself will be tasty for sure.
