Recipe for Fun

On Saturday we got together with our friends, the Varela's, and did some cookin'. Kristal and I wanted to get a few meals in the freezer, as well as provide some meals for a family that we know.


Our day started early. I mean early . We had planned for them to be here at 9:00am. I got an email from Kristal at 6:00 and she had already been up half an hour. Her son, Ari, was so excited about our day that he just couldn't stay asleep. Her Noah woke up soon after that. Anna Kate, who will sleep until 10:30 or 11:00 if I let her, woke up at 6:45ish and Jake followed suit. At 7:30 I called Kristal and told her to just come on over.


Here's our recipe for fun:


You'll need some friends...





And a bunch of pots and pans...

Lots of grapes to snack on...
A sweet little girl to fold all your clean dish towels and napkins...
And a couple of large diet cokes to keep the Mommas going...
You'll also need several hours. Mix all of this together and you will end up with a great day and a freezer full of goodness. We came away with 3 chicken spaghetti, 3 chicken and wild rice casseroles, 3 creamy taco dips, 3 bags full of chocolate chip cookie dough balls, and 3 bags of homemade chicken nuggets! And with a friend by your side, it hardly even feels like work! Thanks, Kristal!
