Saturday post

I'm going to half-recycle a post...or recycle a whole post for a half of this one I guess...I don't know. Anyway, recycling is good right? And I'm only recycling because I heard that song on the radio this morning, and now I have it in my head...and I wanted to share. :) Recycled post.

Anyway...I made teriyaki chicken on rice with green beans for supper last night...and I made an apple pie because we had some apples that really needed to be used. This was the first time I've tried making a lattice crust and I wasn't sure if it was going to work. My pie crust has done some strange things before...but usually only when I try to pre-bake an empty crust. It turned out fine, as you can see! Since apples aren't very impressive-looking after they're cooked, I wove it pretty close, because you don't need to see the filling. Now if it was something red or blue, I'd probably leave more space to see the pretty filling.

And I'm making another pie for tomorrow, a chocolate truffle pie. We are, yet again, doing something different for our evening service! This time, everyone's going to go over to the Beasleys for lunch and then after lunch, we'll do our regular evening study. This is really confusing, not knowing from week-to-week what we're doing! :p

Dad got the vents installed in the attic this morning...I would go take a picture, but I think it's raining...I'll get one later. He cut his hand on the siding, but all we had was Crayola bandaids, so he has a crayon bandaid. :) I got some regular ones at the store though, so he can change it to a regular one before tomorrow when he needs to help serve communion! :p

I went to a few garage sales this morning, I found a few things, and I could have gotten a cat...I didn't though, we really don't need another cat! I also saw my friend Zoe's cousins at a yard sale...I'm trying to think if I've ever seen teenage guys going to garage sales...I don't think so. Not that it's a problem or anything...garage-saling must run in their family! lol! :p

Mom and I have discovered Facebook...well, not discovered it, but are trying it out. :p I quite honestly am not quite sure what the point is...but it's awfully fun to track down all your friends and relatives! I feel like a stalker...oh well. If you've gotten a message from me, you already know I'm on Facebook...if you haven't, here's my profile. I don't think you'll be able to see that if you don't have a FB account though.

I've found all the people I can think of right now...and I'm wondering about some other people that I haven't talked to in years...hmm. To contact, or not to contact? I'm trying to think of other people I know that might be on there...I already know more people than I realized! :p

I don't know how much messing around with Facebook I'll might just be a time-waster. But we'll see. And if you have an account and I haven't contacted you, let me know! :)

I'll try to take a picture of the chocolate pie before we leave tomorrow, so y'all can see what it looks like...oh boy, I have to get up early enough to make the whipped cream for the top, and put it all together. :(

Your pie looks great! I want a taste... lol. You think you can send a piece over the internet? :P

I have a Facebook.... and it's mostly a waste of time. btw, the link to your profile isn't working... which might mean nothing since I've had a ton of trouble with Facebook. :\

Hmm...I don't think virtual pie would taste as good, Lizzie! :D

Ah, well, probably not. Too bad. :P
