Thursday, February 12

Hello All!!
Hope everyone is doing well out there. It snowed here this morning - I can't say enough how pretty it looks outside when it snows...Brenna really enjoyed seeing in fall as well. When we took Justice for his evening outing - I threw some snow in the air, and they both really enjoyed it :-)
I made hamburger buns yesterday - they came out really beautiful (how sad is it that I am so excited about how wonderful looking my hamburger buns came out!). My only pictures today are of the only two remaining buns! It was nice to have some American fare - sloppy joes (another new recipe) and an old favorite, mushroom burgers. Dustin still misses American bread and buns, but I will keep trying :-) I put some of the wheat type flour in the buns, so I'm sure that could have affected the flavor, but I thought they were pretty good. The consistency was good, not quite as moist as some of the buns in the US, but nice none the less. I had hoped to make my sister-in-law's recipe for sloppy joes, but I didn't find any canned condensed soups last weekend.
Brenna took no nap today and threw a fit at the end of German class, not quite sure what her mood was for today...Hopefully, tomorrow will be better. At least it is Friday tomorrow :-) We still enjoyed reading several more books this afternoon with the extra time.

Get well wishes go out to my Grandma today - our prayers are with you as you recover!

Well, that is all for today - take care!
