When I first started studying over 20 years ago, the options weren't very flexible. I found myself studying full-time, on campus with long hours spent at the library going through many, many books.
Stupendous Joy put me onto Coursera a while ago and I have just started a 5 week course this week about Child Nutrition and Cooking. This free course is run by Stanford University School of Medicine. It is really easily paced and contains video tutorials and multiple choice quizzes. Homework is great because it is all about preparing meals: kill two birds with one stone. (No killing was involved in the making of this meal.)
Our first assignment was based on vegetables.
As the autumn weather has finally hit, a roast vegetable soup seemed like a good option. With a garnish of fresh herbs and cheese and a side of freshly cooked bread, everyone was pretty happy to eat the results. One little mouse isn't a huge fan of soup. That is why the bread is a must.
Lucky for me, there was enough left over, so I'm off to reheat some for lunch.
PS Take a look at the courses available. I would love to know if you enrol in any.
