There is so much to say, but so little time to convey it. I want to sit and write a nice, wordy post about my experience thus far in culinary school but it's already 9:30 (a half hour past my bedtime), and I know 4:30am is going to arrive way too quickly as it has been doing this past week (class starts at 7am sharp, thus the early bedtime/wakeup).
For now, I want to show you the notebook I have dedicated for taking notes in class. What's special about this book?
1. It has a cute owl design.
2. It is completely tree-less and certified organic. That's right. Tree-less paper. It sounds almost like another one of my clever oxymorons. And who knew notebooks could be certified organic these days? The paper is made from 20% banana fibers and 80% who knows what other materials (not trees).
Somehow it just seems appropriate to be writing my recipe notes on banana paper. And I actually really enjoy the texture of the pages. It's not white and smooth like regular notebooks. It's slightly rough to the touch and has a brown hue to it. It almost reminds me of thin cardboard. Anyway, here is a glimpse of my eco-friendly culinary school notebook:
After the serious amount of notes I took last week, I think I'll be needing at least 3 more of these banana notebooks before the end of the year...
