Menu Plan - August 29

The end of August.  Really?  One month ago we were on our way to our new city... Tuesday, I start teaching two college biology courses.  All I can say is that God is good.

The excitement of the week {in between the faculty retreat, furniture shopping and hanging up photos} was having our first dinner guests!!  My college roommate of 4 years was in town with her husband.  Laura has been living in Turkey for 5 years, and the last time we saw each other was three years ago at our wedding... before that, it was when we graduated from college!

Frog Prince did most of the cooking {I made dessert} and we had a great time together.  It was lovely to get to know Laura's husband too!
