A few Saturday's ago I was able to have a lot of fun with some of the ladies from our newlywed class. We made a whole bunch of cookies for VBS...chocolate chip, no-bake, and rice crispy treats. I'm not sure exactly how many we made, but our goal was to make a little over a thousand!! Suffice it to say we made a whole lot. My job was to make several trays of rice crispy treats. I actually made them in the microwave. I'd never done that before, but I WILL be doing it again. It was a ton faster that way. I really wanted to try a "taste test", but I refrained! It was so much fun getting to know some of the other ladies in our class. I always love these functions, because I always ended up meeting someone new or getting to know someone better!
After our "bakeathon" a few of us headed out to the beach for some time in the waves and sun. When we got there it was raining, but after huddling under an umbrella for a few minutes the sun came out and we were able to have a blast. I'm sure it was quite entertaining to the other people on the beach to see six ladies huddled under 1 beach unbrella! I miss the mountains of Colorado, but I really do enjoy being able to go to the beach whenever we want!!
Roderick and I ended the day trying out a "whole-in-the-wall" Turkish restaurant with a couple from church. I'm not exactly sure what I ate, but it was sure good! = ) We ended the meal with some baklava! ( At least I had heard of that before!)
