I failed to take photos of most of what I did this weekend, but it was still great. B and I washed both of our cars, and my dad and I washed his airplane. Then, we flew in his airplane, and I finally got to fly my uncle's airplane for the first time. The wind was completely calm, and I flew like it was my tenth hour in the plane instead of my first. Maybe my license is within reach after all.
On Sunday, I went to church and then spent some time in the kitchen. Again, I failed at taking photos. I had a long time friend over to eat and made one of my favorite recipes - Martha Stewart's lighter sesame chicken with rice and broccoli. I got really into Martha Stewart's website a couple of years ago and found some no-fail recipes that I go to again and again. I can see and hear her in my mind saying, "it's a good thing." Anyone else grow up with a mother who watched Martha?
I also mixed up a (huge) batch of Pioneer Woman's restaurant salsa. It doesn't go with sesame chicken at all, but it is SO good. Between Martha and PW, I could almost live without Pinterest. Almost. Please come over if you want some salsa. I'll be eating it with crock pot chicken taco chili.
We already had a couple of desserts around the house: a blueberry pie made by a friend who even picked the blueberries herself and lunch lady brownies that my mom made. But I couldn't forget to make some tea! One day I will post about my mom's tea.
