Globe

When we first decided that we needed to move, I was very hesitant, because I love Safford/Thatcher so much... But now that we are in Globe I am loving it! I went exploring Monday to find the library, and a Safeway that is in the middle of old Globe. When I found Safeway I also found the library... and about a dozen other awesome, really old buildings (several really neat churches.) I can now say that I know my way around a town better than Zach! (He knows the Gila Valley like the back of his hand, and is very familiar with Tucson and the Phoenix area...) I am wanting to take Zach exploring this afternoon... I will definately take my camera with me and get some pics of all the cool stuff I have found, or am going to find!!!

I love summer!!!

Last night my sisters Diedre and Nina made a three course dinner for us. Our appetizer was a Tahitian Fruit Salad. Dinner was a roast duck with turnips and onions and a roast goose with baked apples and a mashed potato and sage stuffing (both birds were traditional French recipes). The side dishes were cucumber salad, and garlic brussel sprouts. Our dessert was an amazing coconut cake... with fresh coconut! To drink we had a Tahitian Fruit Punch. Everything had intense flavors... My sisters are amazing to do all that! It was three day's worth of cooking... (It will soon be posted on my older sisters' blog mowercooking.blogspot.com I hope)
Today I got to go spend the morning and early afternoon with my Grandma P. We spent the morning visiting and making potato bread... so yummy!!! We were trying to get the bread done in time for lunch, but it wouldn't rise fast enough... it barely came out of the oven before we had to go. We put together several plates of sandwich fixings, and when my dad, hubby, uncles, and cousin came over (they have been building a house for my great uncle) we had an amazing lunch. Sooo yummy!!!! Then on their way to a dentists appointment my grandparents took my by the swimming pool to meet my mom, younger siblings, aunt, and cousins. I had a blast in the water, the bottom of my big toes got torn up from the swimming pool (as usual :-( ), and I think that I am slightly sunburned... sadly I don't tan!! I just peel.... sad day! All in all it was an amazing day.

A Whole New World

Well I decided to enter the not-so-new world of blogging... Zach and I have been married for a year and four months. I just graduated from Eastern Arizona College with my Associates Degree in Secondary Education. Zach just got hired on with Freeport/McMoran as a desiel mechanic assistant. This past week has been spent moving up to Globe... but we won't be up there permanately until Monday. Alas I have one last week of work (well it turned out to not be a whole week... just Monday morning and Saturday afternoon/evening), and Zach decided to work for my dad to pull in a little extra money.
We went to our new ward last Sunday and felt very welcome, and needed! It was all mostly elderly couples. In Relief Society the youngest women (other than me) were 30 years old, so it might take awhile to get used to...

One of my biggest hobbies is cooking/bakeing, so most of this blog will probably be recepies that I like that I want to share with others...
