We had the Missionaries for dinner....and boy did they taste good!

Elder Cluff and Elder Wonnacott and four of our five children.
So I have always thought it was so funny when you say, "We are having the missionaries for dinner," like it's a special recipe or something or another name for chicken. We did have a great evening with the Elders and was able to serve Elder Cluff a dish from home.

My first attempt at baked roziti.

Can you see the ice!?!
