Today was a busy one! But, it was all FUN stuff! :mrgreen:

After the New Harvest presentations, the group traveled to the Reading Terminal for a vegetarian Italian cooking class at La Cucina.

The owner of La Cucina, Anna Maria Florio, is a Philadelphia native and the daughter of Italian-born parents from Italy. She was the instructor for our cooking class this afternoon.

Anna Marie introduced herself and explained how to prepare the various courses of our meal. Then, we broke off into small groups of 2-3 people and got right down to work making our lunch.

Lunch also included the most amazing Crostini with caramelized onions, fig jam, and goat cheese. I ate 3 or 4 of them. So good!

We also made homemade Sweet Potato Ravioli, which I really loved. They were doughy and sweet.

After lunch, we ventured over to the Franklin Institute to check out the famous heart exhibit.

The Giant Walk-Through Heart, originally built in 1954, is two-stories high and would be the accurate size for a 220-foot tall person. Cool!

Our last stop of the day was the Philadelphia Museum of Art to see the Rocky Steps.

Jenna and I visited the Rocky Steps on Thursday, so we rested our feet for a little bit.

It was a long day, but I enjoyed it all. Plus, having a 2-hour break before dinner was just what I needed to recharge for the rest of the day.

Gotta get ready for dinner! See ya! 😎
