Gray Peas

Gray Peas

How do they get frozen peas to look so green?

The peas from my garden are not overcooked, but they are gray peas.  Fresh out of our garden, they look gray.

I made pot roast for the elders tonight.  The peas are a side dish, and in spite of them being fresh and barely cooked, they are gray peas.  Everything else, including my rice pudding, turned out great.

Choir Practice

We stayed after for choir practice.  Pageant is next weekend.  Everyone expects the Palmyra Ward Choir to sing.  We will not disappoint.

The Palmyra Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints receives many visitors on the two Sundays surrounding Hill Cumorah Pageant.  It’s usually around 1,500 people.  As a result, the building is packed and seating limited.

Rice Pudding

Rice pudding deserves lots of raisins.  My recipe is simple… 1 cup sugar, 1 can condensed milk, 1 can evaporated milk and 6 eggs.  Beat well.  Add to rice and raisins.  The more raisins, the better.  Then bake in a shallow dish for 60 minutes at 325.

Regarding the amount of rice… I just throw leftover rice in.  3 cups, 4 cups… who knows.

Ride Tomorrow

My goal is to go riding first thing tomorrow morning.  I’m praying my body doesn’t hurt so much it discourages me away from riding.  This is my plan, and I am sticking to it!

I will take the Erie Canal Trail.  My route is undecided, but we’ll shall see how things go.
