Vists and Good Eats...

Although Jake worked 3 overnight shifts in a row this week-end, I took it surpisingly well, mostly due to some wonderful visits with some friends. On Friday, I was able to chat with Missy for almost an hour. We realized how great it was to chat on the phone, which is something we rarely do, if ever. Thanks for the lovely convo!

Last night Amy came over, and we talked for a bit and then watched Raising Helen. I thought about my sister Melissa, because we LOVE that movie. If you haven't watched it, you definitely should. It's the keeper of a century! It was nice to visit with Amy and catch up for a bit.

Then, tonight Christina kept me company and we indulged in home-made cappuccinos, topped with whipped cream! It was simply delightful, and I'm grateful for being able to chill out in my home. It was a wonderful evening filled with laughter, especially over the paper that was stuck to my backside! Oh dear...

I am so glad to be surrounded with many friends, especially ones who care so much. I do have a lot of visits to catch up on, so if you're reading this and wondering when it's going to be your turn, just comment and we'll plan a date :)

Jake and I have been finding it to be very beneficial to plan out our meals a week in advance. Now when he asks, "What's for dinner?" I remind him of what we had planned instead of saying, "Hmmm...I don't know. Did you have anything in mind?" We even cracked open one of our recipe books and plan on making pineapple chicken for dinner on Thursday night. Last night was Korean night, and I made a curry with carrots, potatoes, and chicken. The curry powder came in a pre-mixed and measured package (I bought it at the Korean store with Hee-Sook back in the summer). The meal brought back so many memories of the summer time, since that was one of the dishes the students made for us. In fact, it was my favourite one, so I was quite ecstatic that it turned out the same way! Since today was fellowship lunch at our church, we decided to bring a main course dish (for the first time). I mixed together the rice and curry and it went over quite well. I was worried that people might not like it.

I forgot to mention that we ate our Korean meal at our new table last night! We were so thrilled, and happy at the thought of being able to have people over for dinner now!

I'm looking forward to this week, since I have a job AND Jake and I are going to visit our friends in Sudbury this week-end! The week-end can't come soon enough :)

Love,
Ashleigh
