Tofu and goldfish

Well, unfortunately I came down with this horrendous bug that's been going around. Tuesday afternoon at Bonita's and my hair appointment I started feeling really lousy. I went to the sofa, once home, crept under a fleece blanket and stayed there. By bedtime, my temperature was 102.3 (and I never ever have a fever!) Fortunately, the plans for yesterday were to stay home in order for Bonita to work, with Dane and Kelsey's help, on preparing their missionary presentation. They are finally updating it from the old "slide" presentation. She is not as computer-literate as they are, but very creative, so with their help, she had a lot of fun with picasa.
Yesterday was also Arnie's birthday, so we had planned to have a little celebration supper last night. What to do? Would they still want to come with me sick? We gave them the option, and Tonya decided to stay home with the little boys, while Nathan and Don decided they would still come. Everyone had a fun time! I felt better after a long nap, during which Kelsey took on (she's a great cook), the dinner preparations, with Bonita's help. They had Haystacks, one of our favorites, and always fun with a group. The name comes from the shape on your plate after you stack it all up! We start with brown rice and/or tortilla chips (smooshed), (we have also served it with baked potatoes) and top that with chili, and then you add your favorite toppings! Our topping choices include the usual, the unusual, and the you-put-what-on-it! The sky's the limit! Lettuce, cheese, tomatoes, onions, peanuts, pineapple, black olives, apples, raisins, coconut (my husband's favorite:), jicama, and of course, salsa and sour cream! We encourage people to be adventuresome and they always go back for seconds!! For dessert, Kelsey made an out-of-this-world dessert--"Peanut-Caramel-Candy Bar Cake" (It just happened to have a Snickers bar in its ingredients (Arnie's favorite)!) Arnie had some fun telling us his "birthday-dinner requests" in the days prior to the event, so we had some fun with him!! Besides his requests for rack of lamb, and turkey with all the trimmings, he said he wanted three tofu dishes (remember he's been living in Japan for 31 years :) The description of the third tofu dish was more than a little interesting!!! They start with soup. They place a square block of tofu into the bowl of soup and then put LIVE fish around the tofu after which they pour boiling water over them, which causes the little fish to swim into the tofu. Then THEY EAT IT--Very fresh! So Kelsey and I both thought of the same idea: we got some tofu and some goldfish crackers and voila! he got his wish!!

After everyone left, we watched Fireproof, which they had not seen. I thought it was even better the second time.
