food… and work…

Matt took today (and Monday) off.  Monday because that is the day of Amanda’s graduation… and today just because.  We compiled a lengthy to-do list for the day.  I started by going to the variety show emelia was performing in at her school.   I’ll try to post it later tonight…. She’s on the left btw. 

After I got Izzy to school I started mowing and Matt started trimming tree branches.  He ended up cutting down two trees that were almost dead.  I went to get the propane tank for the grill refilled and came home to vacuum the pool.  I got a really painful sunburn which is odd because I didn’t even realize it was that hot. 

I got this cool calphalon pot for $10 at Marshall’s last week that was just begging to be used… So I made homemade scalloped potatoes.

I sliced yukon gold potatoes thin, put a layer of potatoes… salt, pepper, chives, grated cheddar sliced onions, then another layer of potatoes, etc. about four or five layers deep and then poured half and half over the top and more cheese.  Delish. 

The potatoes cooked while I was picking izzy up and running errands, I came home and wrapped corn on the cob seasoned and onions and garlic head with butter salt pepper and a little sugar on the grill.  Later I added burgers.  I don’t know if it was the one meal a day thing or what but everything was so good.  Seriously.  I think they were the best burgers I have ever had.  I need to do a post on Colonix program

Matt and the kids went for a swim while I was being the grillmaster 🙂 … 

Yesterday was Amanda’s last day of High School. Ever.  Sad huh?  Not to her 🙂 …

Couple of prayer requests… a friend from church has a baby who was diagnosed with cancer yesterday.  He is just a few months old and obviously this is quite a shock.  Also my oldest brother, Jody, had surgery on his back Wednesday and is in a great amount of pain. 

Here’s a pic from the Tulsa World of Paula, Matt’s mom (and my fav. mil) volunteering at the Special Olympics.  You can tell her heart was in it huh?
