Last night I ordered carryout from Outback. Mmm… real food….
But I accidentally ordered a sirloin instead of a ribeye. I could really tell the difference. The sirloin had a different flavor and texture. I will not make that mistake again for a while.
I got some of their brown bread with my meal. I always feel like I should be eating that with honey butter. I think there was some restaurant I went to, maybe even as a kid, where brown bread was served with honey butter. Outback doesn’t serve honey butter, so I made my own.
Last night the band had a fundraiser at a pizza place in Paia. The restaurant offered a percentage of each meal, and there was a silent auction. I met Andrea and Nancy there, because it is our usual Bible study night, and because Andrea is the band director, so she was there already.
We thought we might squeeze in a little Bible studying, but it didn’t work out. There were lots of school families there, and we ended up spending most of our time in the silent auction room, which was an upstairs room away from the dining area.
It was fun to have a night out and to have some social time.
When my mom was visiting, she bought string cheese. I hadn’t had that in a while, so it was off my radar. Since she left, I’ve been eating the leftovers. They were good, so the last time I went to the grocery store, I got more.
It seems like a pretty good snack to me – a little protein, not a lot of calories, dairy (which always agrees with my stomach). Nice!
Happy Birthday to Denis! Woo hoo! He doesn’t comment, but he’s a lurker here.
After a wonderful Easter church service, I had a laid back day. I did a little cleaning and a little cooking. I was invited to have dinner with Megan, Liz, and Grace. Their friend Jackson was there too. It was delicious!
I made my mom’s lemon pudding recipe. I made it in little disposable loaf pans because I didn’t have enough glass dishes. It was interesting. There was more of the cakey layer, and less of the pudding layer. I think I prefer a little more pudding. It sure was nice to not have to worry about cleaning the dishes though.
After dinner, we played Scattergories. It was fun, but I wasn’t very good at it.
What a great Easter! It was fun to eat with people, and even more fun to get to know my coworkers a little better.
