to hear from my husband in Africa again. He's sent a couple of pictures and a few updates which I've posted on the church blog . Nothing new since Sunday afternoon. I always try to assume that no news is good news, right? I believe that he is in Benin right now...at least that's what the plans were. Hopefully tomorrow will include another email.
Kelly and her boys left this morning. What a fun visit we had for the past few days! We always have a good time, and NONE of the kids were ready for them to head home today. Praising God for safe travels for them, as Kelly called a little while ago to say they'd made it home.
Last night was Lydia Circle at church. No one was scheduled to hostess, so I said I'd provide treats. I made the chocolate mousse cake, and some dilly oyster crackers and some taco seasoned oyster crackers. I served Friendship Tea for a beverage. It's great weather for hot tea. Here's the recipe.
1 (21 oz) jar orange breakfast drink mix (Like Tang)
1 c. sugar
1/2 c. sweetened lemonade mix (like kool-aid)
1/2 c. unsweetened instant tea
1 pkg. apricot jell-o
2 1/2 t. ground cinnamon
1 t. ground cloves
Combine all ingredients. Mix well. Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.
To prepare 1 cup of tea, dissolve 3-4 t. of tea mix in 8 oz boiling water. Stir well and enjoy!
