A Weekend Getaway

That is what I need right now. My zits are coming out right after the other and it hurt so much. I am stress from everything these days, the economy, the government, my family and our children school. I can really use a two days getaway from everyone and enjoy myself for once. I always wanted to visit “The Gateway to the West” because I never been there. I saw plenty of pictures from my friends but that was the closest I got.

I heard that Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel is having a cooking school weekend on 16th and 17th of October. It includes deluxe accommodations for two Friday and Saturday. There will be a welcome wine tasting, cooking demo by Chef Nathan on how to prepare an appetizer serve the prior night, a Saturday four course dinner paired with wines, and another cooking demo on Sunday teaching how to prepare the prior nights meal.

I would like to learn how to make dessert and pastry if I can. Preparing meals comes easy for me because I just follow the recipes and desserts making is a little tricky. I can’t even put a nice looking icing on a cake.

For the nights mentioned above the rates at Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel starts from $199 plus tax. Hubby and I can easily fly for the weekend using our frequent flyer miles. Does anyone willing to watch our well behave children for that weekend?
