Dinner at our house

It's been a long day. We had the missionaries over for dinner. I served scrambled eggs, grits, blueberry muffins, toast, canned pineapple and apple juice. They were so polite in telling me it was delicious. I know it wasn't. The eggs tasted burnt because I used a larger pan than I normally use. Apparently it cooks eggs faster and I caught it just in time before destroying the dozen and a half eggs in the pan, but not early enough to avoid them tasting like charbroiled eggs. The grits turned out pretty good. The muffins were burnt on the bottom. I also made a batch of brownies, but purposely didn't serve them because I knew they were going to be too gooey. My kids turned the oven and timer off while they were baking so I didn't know how much longer to bake them once I turned the oven back on. Now I remember why I usually pass the missionary dinner calendar quickly every Sunday morning. It's because I'm doing them a favor by sparing them the torture of eating a meal at our house.


  1. President Uchtdorf cracked jokes about his burnt toast and fried eggs, how his wife always apologizes for something she did wrong with the perfect meal she cooked like how she added too much ginger or not enough curry... hmmm sounds familiar? The missionaries were probably grateful not to go to bed hungry and to be around your loving family. Beth
