Better Day

Better Day

Today is a better day than yesterday.  Thank goodness.  Yesterday wasn’t much fun.

It is Fast Sunday and we had a good meeting at church.  Later, President Robinson asked me how it was.  I was happy to report it was a good.

There were lots of visitors.  As a result, Sacrament preparation took longer than normal.  I had to repeat the hymn twice after the congregation sang.

Lasagne

I don’t think I will make lasagne using pasta ever again.  The last two times I’ve used eggplant and summer squash to make it and people rave about it.  I don’t miss the pasta and this feels lighter on the stomach.

Basically, I use thinly sliced eggplant and squash where the pasta would be.  I bake it a little longer to evaporate the excess liquids that come from the squash.  It is really good.

Sisters for Dinner

The sisters came over for dinner.  Sister Henrie has been here for a while, but it was the first time having dinner here for her new companion, Sister Searle.

Dessert was simply a parfait made with greek yogurt and fruit.  It was a good way to have that yogurt without the bitter aftertaste.  (I’m not buying that brand/flavor again.)

Chinese Food Cooking

It has taken me a while to master cooking Chinese food, and once I did I was surprised at how easy it is.  The biggest part is learning not to over cook things, and when to mix stuff together.

Tonight Sisters Chatterson and Hatch came to dinner, and because Elizabethe is out of town, I invited Bishop and Sister Taylor too.  I made sweet and sour chicken, squash and eggplant with garlic sauce, Asian cucumber salad, steamed rice and pot stickers.  (Okay, the pot stickers I didn’t make, I just cooked frozen ones.)

The Taylors stuck around and helped me with the dishes.  I always enjoy their company.

After dinner, I retired to the bedroom to work on my drawing techniques.   I’m getting better, but not at the point where I’m ready to post my work on-line.
