wild rice...could life get any better?

Kevin said, "I feel like I'm in school on a Saturday." That's to give you an idea of what a crazy weekend it was with tons of high schoolers over here ALL weekend. Wow. I am going to have to limit Seth's friends coming over during meal times or they will eat us out of house and home!

But I got to do quite a bit of baking yesterday with Kacie. She found some wild rice at CBA last week (a rare find!) and was willing to share it with me. So we made some chicken and wild rice soup! We did taste a little but froze the rest for later. Ah, it's my favorite soup. I am so excited! We also made some delicious cookies, thanks to her finding and trying a new cookie base recipe. I think I will always use that from now on. I wish I didn't love food so much. :)

We are here through Thursday and then finally home for good. Seth is handling it well, but I think he is getting anxious to go home and stay home. Praise the Lord he is sleeping well!

I couldn't resist. I ate some soup today. Yum.

okay you guys need to post the recipes for all of us to use... the soup and the cookies :)

Also, you can get wild rice at health food stores here. They always have it at the one near me. So if you need some, just let me know!
