There was quite a bit of excitement in our house last week!
On Wednesday a package arrived for Mikayla and when she opened it she found a wonderful letter from the NZ Pork board regarding the competition she entered earlier this year. They sent her a NZ Pork board book which is really glossy and includes all the different pork cuts and what you can do with them followed by lots of recipes.
They also sent her some gorgeous ceramic salt and pepper shakers shaped as little pigs… very cute! But the most exciting part... they have asked if they can publish her recipe that she designed for the competition on their official website!!! How exciting is that??
The week got even better though because when we got home on Thursday there was a letter from Waiariki Polytech... and she has been ACCEPTED to do a two year diploma in Culinary Arts!!!
Although she TRIED to do the very cool, calm and collected thing when she opened her letter it didn't work because within seconds she was squealing with delight and jumping up and down saying I GOT IN!!!
It was really neat to see her so excited about it… and knowing that it’s what she really wants to do makes it even more so!
The only strange thing for me is that I’m going from having two kids at school to having none… it all came around a bit quicker than I was planning! 2011 is shaping up to be a year of BIG changes!!
