The Ropes


Over the weekend I plan my menu for the week ahead.
I look through several of my favorite cookbooks then modify 
the recipes to fit our food specifications (no meat, more plant based).
Then make a list and shop after Barre class on Monday morning.
Since Claire has graduated and doesn't work on Mondays,
I am teaching her the ropes; like planning and shopping
for groceries and where to go for a good Acai bowl after class.
Mostly we just laugh at....well, I actually don't even know what.
Stuff.

Last week we had our sister missionaries over for dinner.
I made some delicious chili then then decided last 
minute to add the cornbread 
batter on top of the chili and cook in the oven.
I looked good and smelled amazing, but when it was time to dig
in at the table, batter oozed out when we broke the crust.
I was embarrassed and horrified.
These sisters are on a tight schedule, and so I didn't have time to
make anything else.  Turns out only a small part of the 
cornbread batter wasn't cooked and the rest was actually amazing.
It was a close call, and miracles do happen.

Mr. Nielson's first stop: Kentucky.
And he sent a photo to prove it.
