June/July Letter from the Editor

Monday, June 14, 2010

Summer came early, or at least that is what it feels like outside.  If this is any indication of what's to come, I'm thinking I'll be staying indoors most of the summer.  And I'll be sure I sit down when opening my power bill in July!!
If you don't have a pool to cool off in during the day and are looking for something fun to do with your friends and family, I have a couple of things to suggest.  One of these I have already experienced but the other is planned later in the summer.  It's a short drive over to Jackson to enjoy these day events. 
The first is the Viking Cooking School in Ridgeland, Miss. Terry and I had the pleasure to experience it first hand. We were given a gift certificate for Christmas and finally found time to research a class that we were interested in and drive over for the class. To say we had a great time would be an understatement. The three-hour class took us through the basics of preparing a steak for grilling to making  Morton's of Chicago's World Famous Hot Chocolate Cake.  And the best part, after you're finished preparing and cooking the meal, you get to sit down and eat everything you cooked.  The classes they offer vary in prices and difficulty. They offer kid classes, girls night out classes and for those who are serious about learning one technique, you can join the Viking University. This summer, they are having a kids camp and a teens camp. For more information on how to enroll your little chef, visit their website:  www.vikingrange.com and click on Ridgeland, Miss. We enjoyed our steakhouse class and are looking forward to taking another class soon.
Art, it's something we all love to look at, even if we don't understand it. And the prices for an original piece of art can be very pricey.  How would you like to hang an original piece of art, by you, in your home for under $50? I'm raising my hand with you because this is something I plan to do later in the summer. I'm no Michael Angelo but, Easely Amused in Ridgeland and Flowood offer classes to help you make a masterpiece for your home. To see the different classes that are offered, visit www.easelyamused.com. I have my eye on one class and I think it will look great in my kitchen. They even offer kid classes and have some two-day camps available. 
Take time to enjoy something fun this summer with your family. If money does not permit you to go on a beach, mountain or Six Flags vacation, check out our 393 Road Trip, Stay-cation, for suggestions on how to have fun close to home.
