Today's class was Nutrition & Sanitation. Because I already have a master's degree, it was recommended to me that I take these two topics as separate courses online; basically, take one online nutrition class and take one online sanitation course. This recommendation is made because people with advanced degrees tend to need as many lab courses as possible; I will finish 4 lab courses this semester regardless so I decided to remain in the course that meets on campus once a week, from 8:00-11:00am Wednesdays.
I did this for two reasons. One, it exposes me to another chef in person and another perspective. Two, I like the concept of this course - learning about sanitation and nutrition in the hands-on lab setting allows me to do more baking and even some cooking, and I figure I need all of the practice I can get. And of all of my courses, this will be the easiest to manage. And I actually like that it is on Wednesday - it will hopefully give me a breather between the craziness of Tuesdays and Thursdays, and I certainly need that.
And now it's time for homework. Is it strange that I am actually excited about my homework and reading?
