We got to see our soldier!

Okay, so I know it’s been a long time since I’ve posted, but I’ve been busy (and sick), and I just haven’t taken the time to post. Sorry about that! Anyway, I just wanted to share that I got to go visit my hubby a couple weeks ago and it was sooooo nice to spend some time with him and see where he’s living and working, meet his friends, and generally just lock ourselves in the room, lol. I can’t say for sure, but I think his favorite part was that he finally got to eat some of his wife’s cooking! While I was there I made him steak, stroganoff noodles, hm breaded veal patties, hm cheeseburger macaroni and veggies. I even was able to leave him some leftovers, which made him VERY happy. Another cool thing we were able to do was invite another Chaplain who hadn’t had family visit yet to have lunch with us so he got some home cooking, too, one day. That was kind of neat.

Then, while there, I was able to talk one of his superiors into giving him a weekend pass for the weekend of President’s Day, and the Lord blessed us with being able to find a cheap flight to get him home to see his daughter that weekend. The unfortunate part of this all was that Bryan and I ended up sick from the climate changes (from 70 degrees in SC to 20 degrees here), but it was still just so nice to be together.

That weekend I was like supercook, trying to fit in as many homemade meals as possible. I have a few pics of some of it that I thought I would share:

pancakes
These were sooooo much better than the picture shows. As a matter of fact, K said these were the BEST she’s ever eaten! Of course they were from scratch from a recipe I got off of http://www.allrecipes.com

Lasagna
Yummy Jessica-style lasagna (my lasagna has some strange ingredients and does not include ricotta cheese-of which neither Bryan nor I are fans.

Chocolate Chip Brownies
And the incredible Chocolate Chip Nutso Brownies made by Kaylea and I.

I didn’t get a picture of my prize-winning chili, sorry about that! Sunday night at church was our Chili Cook-off, in which I won Judge’s Choice (there were 3 judges and it was unanimous) and Hottest Chili (but one of the judges later told me that there was one chili there that she thought was MUCH hotter than mine). It was nice that my family was there to see me win this, too.

Then after church Bryan got to have roast that I think was my best ever…it was just sooooo good. I also missed getting pictures of the steaks we had that Saturday, but K complimented me on them profusely!

So there’s a little update for y’all, sorry it took so long! I really thought I would blog more while dh was gone, but I guess not. I’ll try to get some pics of us together next time I go visit him at Ft. Jackson!
