Bon appetit? .... yum! What's on your menu?

Tall Timbers

Imperfect but forgiven
Tonight we're having a hot pot dinner. Sister-in-Law has a mild and spicy side. I just move whatever I want to eat over from the mild to the spicy side... Because she's native Chinese, I won't recognize half of the stuff that's in the pot...

My brother and sister-in-law invited a couple over to share the hot pot. We had Mandarin, Spanish, and English going on between us to try and understand each other. It was fun. Earlier I went to church with my sister-in-law. While the sermon was shared in Mandarin the preacher's wife tried her best to translate for me. So I'm listening to Mandarin in one ear and a very rough translation to English in the other ear... and that was very exhausting, but the translator meant well. I was invited to give my testimony next time I'm in town and they'll translate to Mandarin while I'm speaking.

Youngest daughter's youngest son's three littles have their birthdays all very close, so Mommy decided it would be a big bash all at once for the three.... we had a whole bunch of different appies and our main event was... hot dogs with all kinds of different fixin's.... of course.... then 3 different cakes.... I had 2 peanut butter cookies instead. Boy that hot dog tasted good.... I haven't had a good hot dog for a long time. It's just a lot of fun for me to sit back and watch all the littles play.... there was 8 of them all under 6.
