The Pumpkins Series – Part 1
Farewell Healthy Eating on a Budget cooking class
Last Friday 18/03/2011 was my last day to attend this cooking class. As I mentioned in this Christmas posting, I had joined this class since November 2009. Ever since then I had been looking forward to the last Friday of every month to attend the class. I had amazing new experiences and tons of cooking fun here. I'll definitely miss these and the friendly group of people I met here. I especially enjoyed our tea break when we all had a cuppa, happily chatting and tasting new dishes that we had just learnt.
On this final class, I had brought my camera to snap as many photos as I could to cherish the happy moments I shared with these lovely ladies.

Once again, I would like to take this opportunity to thank North Shore Women center for being a fantastic organizer, actively promoting various workshops ranging from cooking, art crafts, health talks, counseling support groups and even Tai Chi class to local women society, it is definitely a woman's place to be. In addition to this healthy eating on a budget cooking class which has broaden my comfort zone to try out Western Cuisine, I also had wonderful learning experience in their Tai Chi class.
For this class, our charming cooking facilitator Cushla had introduced us to pumpkins. She shared with us numerous nutritious cooking ideas using a variety of pumpkins from Buttercup pumpkin, Butternut pumpkin to crown pumpkin. I would showcase these pumpkin recipes that she had demonstrated one by one, starting with this delectable baked pasta.
