We’ve been hosting a dinner night at our house for at least ten years now. We hosted it in Arizona and now in Oregon. It was a fantastic way to really get to know our neighbors and to kind of bring us all together. We love the way we get to reconnect each week. The attendance varies from week to week but our friends, Spencer and John (who also packed up their lives and moved here to be close to us), are here every week. Alice and Jason are here just about every week as well.
Today, Jason had to go to Florence for a meeting so couldn’t join us and our house is a mess due to some remodeling for a tv in the living room/dining room so Alice was nice enough to have it at her house. Everyone showed up for this one! We had Alice, Wayne, Andrew, Natale, Jayde, me, Taylor, Delaney, Randy, Roger, Barbara, Joanne, Leonard, Miri, and Dale. Glenn even stopped by before dinner to say hello. It was also Sean’s birthday so between Wayne, Joanne and I we made a couple of delicious apple jalapeño pies. This may sound like a strange pie but it’s amazing.
I worked with Shanna this afternoon before I drove Joanne out to Sauvie Island for produce and before all of the cooking happened. We made more progress on our IOS tutorial and it’s pretty fun and interesting. We are hoping to get through the tutorial in a week or so and then develop our own app that we can release in the app store.
Today I learned that there is a method to making an incredible pie crust. I just don’t know what it is but Joanne does!
