...we got to spend some time with a sweet friend from Marshall who happened to be getting her hair done over here
...Diva's school had a meet the teacher day as well as a parent orientation
...we had dinner with the family of one of Diva's new friends in our neighborhood
...the Operinos came over for a last summer hurrah
We attended our first church service since moving to Louisiana. Between one or the other of my people being gone and us being in Marshall for a weekend, we hadn't had a chance to start looking for a church home. That has been something that I have not looked forward to since the move. I love our church family in Marshall and it is emotionally difficult to motivate myself to look for a new one.
God has always put us where we needed to be and I trust this time will be no different.
I branched out a bit and started going through loose recipes from Engineer's Granny. I seem to inherit/acquire recipes and cookbooks...and I'm not complaining about it at all.
Just because I have been going through loose recipes though, does not mean that I have abandoned the mammoth task of going through and purging cookbooks. (You cannot imagine the amount of dishes I rack up by cooking so many random recipes!)
The latest books to be tested are Menus for a Whole Year of Dinner (1971) Square Meals (1984) and Better Homes & Gardens' Salad Book (1958). Square Meals is a really interesting read and has some pretty good recipes too; it was the only one that stayed.
