Something Goes Wrong

On January we got invited to a potluck party. It's sort of New Year's Day party but it wasn't New Year. Since my cinnamon rolls was always a hit every time I cook it in the past, I decided to bring a batch along with herb roast. Well, I'm not really sure what happened but, that batch did not came out the same as before. I tasted it first and warned everyone. I was so looking for good phrases for my hard work and nothing came out of it :)).

Easter dinner, I bought a roast beef not knowing it was already seasoned and cook it the regular way, turned out really, really salty. My FIL offered to bring some pre-made meal before the dinner and we opt not. Then the meal I made was horrible...ack!

July fourth party moved to last week because of rain. My ever famous Hershey cocoa chocolate cake turn very very cocoa-we. It taste I put too much cocoa in it. How are all this recipes gone bad? I can see the mistake with the Easter dinner, but the cinnamon rolls and chocolate cake? I was always able to cook them perfectly.

I blame my DD for always talking to me while I was making them. I kept on telling them to watch, but no, she needs to asked questions and sometimes I forget the measuring count for the ingredients. Sometimes I start making some other meals than intended. I can't wait for her to grow a little taller so that she can work in the kitchen by herself.

Baptism Over the Weekend

We went to our friends' house on Saturday afternoon. I brought kabobs, corn, and Napa cabbage salad for our dinner. I don't want to be a bother because they have three little children and when his wife do something, he is the one doing more.

It was a very tiring weekend for me. I cooked the kabobs (she helped me put them on a skewers). Their little one was getting baptize on Sunday noon. And what a rainy day that was. I think the High Almighty is telling them not to do it...he he he. Their house was packed and there was some cabbage salad from the night before and we also serve it. I cannot believe how fast it disappeared. Almost everyone who loves salad praise me on how delicious it was. Well, thanks to DH friend Bob from NJ for it.

While in church DD asked a lot of questions about chanting, the word Amen and why they say it, kneeling and crossing oneself. The man sitting next to DH sing very loud, he is probably telling us something like, "how come your children don't know anything about Christians or Catholic church?"

I am sorry, I know they are good people, but...yes that, there is always but. People like him don't need to shove his belief on other people. The very same reason why this country is the way it is right now.

Anyway, that's it for this week. I have plenty of things to do to prepare for the first day of school.
