Busy all day, cooking and getting ready for our mission reunion. I made three 10-cup rice cookers of rice which I made into fried rice with a 10lb black forest ham, 3 doz. eggs, a big bag of frozen peas, 1 bunch of green onions. Cut up 3 cantaloupe, 2 honey dew melons. Wendy helped me wash grapes and strawberries. We also bought up what's left on the shelf of TimTam at Target. :)
We had over 70 returned missionaries, their friends and families attend, some coming as far away as Tonga and Canada. What a wonderful evening to rekindle friendships, reminisque and make new friends. Just like old times, after every mission, zone or district conference or MLC, the missionaries just lingered and lingered and talked and talked! It was nearly 10pm when the last group left.
By the time I cleaned up the party aftermath, it was well past 1am. Finally fell asleep at 3am.
