I had enough trouble trying to teach my daughter to sew. You have a lot more patience than I do.

I have absolutely no idea what is for supper. Although we can't afford it, I'm leaning toward Pizza Hut (only pizza place in town) pizza and hot wings.

I do know dessert is flan.

Our power went out while I was prepping dinner. It was out for 2 hours but thankfully it came back and I finished making dinner.

Sweet & Sour Chicken

Chicken dipped in batter and fried in peanut oil

Vegetables (red & green bell pepper, onion, carrots and green onion)

Sweet and sour chicken and string bean salad (steamed fresh string beans, ground dry minced garlic, ground Sea Salt, Ground peppercorns, ground red pepper flakes, EVOO & lemon juice).
