Yesterday, after doing the waterwalking class AND swimming 40 laps, I helped Ted change out the lane lines. The entailed being in the water almost 2 more hours and dragging lanes from one end of the pool to another. I didn't really mind at the time, but after also walking 4 miles, I was exhausted and fell asleep fully clothed at 7 pm. I haven't been that worn out since seventh grade!!

Savory Green Onion Noodle Cake

I was going to e-mail this to Teddie, but someone else might want to try it. It's taken from a cookbook I'm giving her for Christmas. (I am horrible at keeping presents a secret!)

4 eggs
1/2 cup chopped green onions
2 Tbs. chopped cilantro
1/2 teas. grated fresh ginger
8 oz. cooked, rinsed and drained thin spaghetti, tossed with 2 teas. sesame oil
salt and pepper
3 Tbs. peanut oil
Hoison sauce

Beat eggs. Add cilantro, ginger, and spaghetti and seasonings. ( I skipped salt)
Spread mixture in medium hot pan with half of peanut oil. Let cook till set and nicely browned.
Then carefully, with help of a plate, flip the fritatta like food and continue cooking. Ted and I drizzled hoison sauce on the top of our pizza shaped pieces. Kind of like a cross between spaghetti and quiche.

Yesterday Ted had a swim meet all day and Kevin was dissertating all day so Jesse and I took off with the kids on a field trip. We headed north thru the small towns of Dane and Lodi and ended up at a scenic spot called Merrimac. There we took a free ferry across a beautiful river. The ferry only held 15 cars and the ride took all of 4 minutes. From there we went to another town where we let the kids play. The playground had a spring fed swimming pool that must have been 65 years old. Not very appealing to me!! Then we headed to Parfrey's Glen, a beautiful spot at the end of a 1 mile trail. I've taken pics of each of these activities, but I forgot my USB cable to connect the camera to the computer. I am babysitting Evelyn while her parents and Oliver go to church. (She is sick again...) Ted is at another swim meet.... Hopefully he will get an assistant someday . My goal is to post pics by 5 pm today. Weather, so far, has been great. We haven't turned our heat on yet!
