Weekend with Friends
It's been a long time since we went up to visit some longtime friends who live about an hour and half from us so this was the weekend to do that. We had soup and great fresh buns, visited and looked at photos while the guys watched the World Juniors Hockey game (Canada beat Russia 6 - 5 in a shootout!), and then cooked Chinese food together. That was a first for us - I had the job of dipping chicken pieces in batter and deep frying them to make Chicken Balls. Bob stirred the Ginger Beef, Don made stirfried vegetables and Darlene oversaw the whole operation while doing fried rice. All of it tasted delicious and we'd definitely do it again. We played dominoes (which Bob won), stayed overnight and then went to church together this morning. It was a great visit except for the fact that I forgot to take the camera! So I just enjoyed the moments and you'll have to imagine it all!
