Celebrating

After spending the last six months wondering exactly what I was doing with my life, I think I've finally got myself sorted. I found out today that I got into a graduate teaching degree! So by this time next year, I'll be a fully qualified Science and Biology teacher. While I do love research, job security can be lacking, so teaching is a good career change for me.

I'm celebrating tonight with fried rice with hoisin pork, lemon tart (I'm in a baking mood), and a good glass of wine.


The recipe is from a Donna Hay cookbook, and has already been blogged by a fellow blogger. The only challenge I had is that the crusts sank a little as usual, so I had a little lemon filling left; I also had a little dough left so I made a few mini tarts to snack on.

Hi Kate!
Congratulations! It must be a great relief to know in which direction the 'travel' will go! Wishing you luck,
Julia

P.S.: the tart looks delicious...
P.P.S.: my word-verification was "crema" ;o)

Congrats Kate! How exciting for you :^)
Do you think you could ship a piece of that lucious tart to me here in Canada?

Congratulations, teaching is a much undervalued profession and science teachers are in demand. Your lemon tart looks scrumptious! Ann :-)
