Sunday again. I think Sunday is my favorite day of the week. I never feel guilty about hanging out chilling. Melissa sold 1 more loaf of sunflower seed bread than I had so I needed to make another batch of bread this morning. Woke up at about 3:30 and knew that if I got up now I could get the bread done before church. Started getting the ingredients ready and realized that…I don’t have enough milk, the only sunflower seeds I have are salted and roasted (recipe calls for raw) and I’m just about out of honey. So now it’s time to work on what substitutes I can use. For the shortage of milk, I had some heavy cream in the fridge and added enough water to get the right amount of liquid. I drained the honey out of the honey bear and had to scoop a little more out of the jar that had a little left in it. Because the sunflower seeds were salted, I cut down the amount of salt added to the dough then also added some raw pepitas (pumpkin seeds). Well the bread turned out great and since Melissa only needed one loaf (of which I made 6), we enjoyed one for breakfast along with some sausages and scrambled eggs. Now we’re off to church

It’s our anniversary Sunday today and it is so good so see so many extension pastors joining us from all over the globe. After church we had to make a quick stop at Lowe’s for some lights that had burnt out and Costco for a couple of last minute things as well as some fish for lunch. We had planned on doing a barbecue with the neighbors, but since they are leaving for Singapore on Tuesday and we are leaving to Northern California on the same day, we opted to nix the barbee. I did pick up some fresh Mahi Mahi and today we are jonesing for some coconut crusted fish with a lemon caper butter sauce.

Sorry I haven’t mastered the photo layout yet, but just wanted you to “get the picture”. The photo in the middle shows the fish in the pan, the one on the left is after I turned it and the one on the right is the final product.

Time for a nap and a Sunday afternoon movie. After a little rest, I decided that I wanted some blue cheese and crackers for dessert. Yummy! Next up is a soak in the jacuzzi and some coconut curry soup. Tonight I think we will add some shrimp to it. The shrimp doesn’t take long to thaw out, and once you cut it into bite sized pieces, it only takes about 5 minutes to poach in the hot soup.
