We got home & started making dinner. Lele asked Gramma 'you know how to cook?' haha! She was cooking the meat for me while I did everything else. Yes. Gramma CAN cook! She's done it most of her life! All worked out perfect bcuz Carlos & Michael walked in the door w/20 to spare until all was done! Yay! Happy it worked out that way, & NOT sitting waiting & waiting for lasagna to cook. I got the 2 thumbs up for my lasagna, salad & fresh warm bread. Yes!
**Note to self: when buying fresh bread out of the oven in the future, do NOT leave in plastic bag & do NOT wrap it all in a towel in attempt to KEEP WARM.
I thought I ruined the bread, it was almost soggy! After slicing, putting them all on cookie sheet on the oven w/the broiler on... the reg oven was not cutting it! The bread was cripsy & ready to eat! Whew.
Michael's wife brought her homemade rice pudding! Yum! Thx Yaneth. Also, they brought wine, which we never drink! I felt like a grown-up just holding the bottle! haha. I didn't have any though. (yuk.) The girls ran & played right when they all walked in the door and afterwards when it was time to go, they all came up w/a plan. Can we stay here or can we go up to Sedona w/them & you can p/u us tomorrow? Huh?! Not. An entire wkend. Yes. IF we had nada to do. (soccer pix, a soccer game & me home w/Lele & her potty deal just for today!) It was great to catch up again & I'm one day soon (Xmas break) we can make a trip to visit them!
