She is almost finished, about 4 more weeks. She would have already graduated, but she had to go back this semester for one class! :( Anyway, last semester she had to do an internship for a grade. Means she didn't get paid a dime for all her hard work! She did her internship at a
5 star restaurant,
Now mind you I have never set foot in a 5 star restaurant in my life! She did such a good job for her internship, they gave her a 9 course tasting for two! Oh boy, and I was the lucky one that she took with her! The meal was amazing! I ate things I have never put in my mouth before.
The kitchen there was phenomenal, I have never seen a kitchen in a restaurant that was so clean and organized! Sarah enjoyed her time there and she cried when it was time to leave! They offered her a job, but the restaurant is over an hour drive from where we live, and they keep a lot of late nights (2am before she arrived home many times) and that doesn't work when you are a single parent with an 8 yr old!

Congratulations Sarah Trulock
First Sullivan Intern to receive an A!
By the way Sullivan is where Emeril went to school!
She cried like a baby when she read that!
Black Forrest Cake
Chocolate Genoise, Amarena Cherry Ganache
Cherry Ice Cream and Sweet Creme Fraiche
This is my sweet girl,
she don't even weigh a 100lbs soaking wet!

You can tell she feels right at home here!
You can see how small Sarah is!
She didn't get if from me! Ha!
Look how clean this place is!
I think I would even like to work here!
Sarah is so small, she said she couldn't even reach
these plates on top of the work station!
Needless to say I am very proud of my baby girl! She has done me proud! She had a baby at 16, but she never let that hold her back, she graduated high school, (she is also a hairdresser!). She loves her son and he loves her! They are growing up together (he's 8 now) and she is setting a fine example for him! By the way she borrowed all the money to go to school on her own! Not cheap! $45,000!
Mommy is so proud of you Sarah, sorry I just can't seem to say it enough! And I love you very much, like mommy always said
(you can do anything you set you mind to do!)
