In happier news, after a couple of weeks of neglect, we decided it was time to get back to using those eggs we bought. This time, we did it in the form of cornbread! Like with the pancakes, we had tried a food item that we remembered enjoying in childhood, but we used a mix that didn't require eggs, and it was a hit at first but got old really quick. So, since we worked up our courage to buy eggs, we figured we might as well also pick up a box of the corn muffin mix our parents used when we were kids. We made cornbread instead of muffins because muffins are way too much effort to pour out and clean up (which is probably why, as far as we know, we don't have a muffin tin). And once again, the egg made all the difference. The moral of the story is eggs make things better. I mean, if you think about it, it's kind of a miracle that there's a creature on the earth that creates these capsules of protein that we can cook and eat without killing anything (unless the egg was fertilized, but most of the ones you buy at the store aren't, right?).
We also watched an extra episode of Story Trek, because it's just been a good day to curl up and watch TV. Two episodes of Story Trek has become part of our Sunday routine. It's just nice to hear stories about ordinary people sometimes.
Today I'm thankful for timely scripture study lessons, getting to enjoy another food from our childhood, getting to read manga, getting to see some good stories on Story Trek, and not being traumatized by any of the Valentine's chocolates we ate today (but we still think the coconut is gross).
