on Milk

So the other day in a conversation with my friend Sarah, she mentioned that the BYU Creamery has better milk than anywhere else in Provo. I drank creamery milk my whole freshman year and I really didn't think it was anything special, but today I realized she was right! We happened to buy creamery milk after buying the cheapy brand at the grocery store, and there is a huge taste difference. I can't believe I never realized it. It's so much better. Plus creamery milk is cheaper. I don't think I will buy other milk while we live here.

President's Day, Bananas Tempura, Etc.

Happy President's Day! I definitely enjoyed sleeping in this morning, I hope everybody else got to also. Today Peter and I get to catch up on all the homework and housework that we didn't do on Saturday. Hooray.

Tomorrow Peter is leaving to go to a conference in California for a couple of days. It will be great for him and I hope he has fun, but I'm not really happy that he's leaving. I guess I'll live.

Last night we made bananas tempura for dessert, and it was amazing. It was really easy, too. We mixed together 1 cup bisquick, 1 egg, and enough milk and water to make a thin batter, dipped the sliced bananas in, and fried them in a little oil. We ate them with vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup. If you've never eaten bananas tempura, I highly highly recommend it. :-)

New Car!

We bought a new car today! It is a black '86 MR2. I wasn't sure how I felt about buying it, but after seeing it today I am really excited. The only downside is it's a manual, which I currently do not know how to drive. Oh well. And it will be nice not to be car-less anymore. Hopefully this car will bring us better luck than the last one we had...

Chinese New Year

First post! Yay! We just got back from a Chinese New Year party with some of Peter's friends. It was awesome. There was lots of yummy food, and we played Chinese Jeopardy. To end the night, everybody took chopsticks and tossed a salad into the air. It was messy, fun, and very tasty. Maybe someday we'll learn to speak Mandarin like we've talked about doing.

Today was really nice and warm. Too bad we still have a couple more months of winter. I am ready for some sunshine!
