This evening she threw another tantrum at the mere suggestion of getting ready for bed. She is screaming her head off, probably naked, in her room. Little stinker. She is testing bed time rules for the 58th time in three years. I will WIN, I am the MOM, little Amelia.
Natalie and I enjoyed a couple hours visiting Camy. All our kids played marvelously together for over an hour. I love that Amelia is starting to leave the solitary play stage. Miekka's Dad called me while we were on the way to Camy's home. Her parents were shopping at MY Walmart in Sidney! The odds are astronomical. They are on the drive home after visiting their son in Wisconsin. Then my mission comp, Shannon, called about a sale her mom's business is having. Her mother owns One Small Child and sells christening outfits. The warehouse in Idaho is having a liquidation sale of 90% off regular prices. I invested in some gowns, bonnets, bibs, and such for my studio. The total bill without sale price was astounding! I saved a boat load. Thanks so much to Shannon for announcing the sale on Facebook! I can't wait to pick up the items and visit. Shannon and her little family lived in Jordan with my family for a couple years.
The Elder's are back in Sidney. We had them over for dinner this evening. I am trying to organize my shopping list better so made a menu for the week. On Sunday I was craving Calzones and still craved them this evening! Using a recipe from the Best Recipe Book...ever, I made ricotta calzones. I baked them on the grill outside on a pizza stone. The grill had quite a few hot spots, burning parts of the calzones. Still, the meal was soooooo tasty. The filling was simply: 16 oz ricotta, 2 cups mozzarella, 1/4 cup Parmesan, 1/4 cup asiago, 1 egg yolk, salt, pepper, 1 tbs fresh oregano, and a oil infusion of garlic and red pepper.
