When you get married, it seems that eating crackers and cheese for dinner is no longer acceptable. At first, I was slightly distraught by this news... How on earth was I going to be able to think of things to cook Zach... and then to actually make those things (edible!)? These are scary questions facing a newlywed college student. Fortunately, I am blessed with a husband who will eat anything I make him, experimental or not! Anyways, to overcome my fears, I decided to learn one new recipe a week... and along the way, I've learnt that Cooking is actually FUN! In the past couple of weeks, I've made: Enchiladas, Shepherd's pie, Chicken Roll-ups, Lasagna, Spaghetti, Leek and Potato Soup, Tostadas, Tortilla Soup (a definite favourite), Meatloaf (even though I'd never eaten it before), and Corn Chowder. As it turns out, cooking isn't that intimidating after all, and I've really begun to enjoy making new and yummy things... The problem is that I always too much!

Life as we know it...

Oct 24 2009
I can't believe it's almost Halloween! Gosh, time is just flying by. Classes are going well... I am actually doing the reading; which seems to make midterms a lot easier! I think Zach is really enjoying his classes as well, because not only does he edit movies at school, but also at home. I'm so glad he's found something to study that he's passionate about. Besides school, work is also going well. I just received a new district of missionaries - and half of them are going to my mission: Carlsbad California! I was so excited to share that news with them, but like much else you tell missionaries in their first day, it just flew right over their heads! Oh well, maybe in time they will appreciate how awesome their teacher is! Zach is winding down with the football season at work, but there still seems to be a lot for him to do. In short, things are Greeeeat!

Playing with Photoshop

Zach and I got a trial for photoshop... and have been playing around with it....
