A Great Meal

Lindsay and I got our FHE group together today to cook American Food for a "Noche de talentos" at our local chapel. We bought a ton of chicken wings from the local meat shop (150 when chopped up) and we were surprised to see how many feathers stick on the Spanish wings. We made some great sauces on top of them. I cooked some Cajun Stuffed Mushrooms (stuffed mushroom caps with brie cheese, bell peppers, garlic, onion, sausage, and cajun spices) and they were a big hit amongst the students and the locals. Others in our group made bumps on a log, Mexican burritos with fresh lime, pumpkin pie, muddy buddies, and other deserts. We enjoyed watching the skit mocking the bus trips, as many of the program members and the profes have quirks that are very recognizable.

I also enjoyed cuddling with my wife after the day and watching WALL-E finally. What a great film! The fact that it was silent most the time and short was fine; it fit the mood and showed the power of tacit-taciturn communication in film. The silent film needs a resurgence! We need Buster Keaton again.
