The weather was beautiful all weekend, and this glorious weather continues today! I believe that spring has finally arrived!

Laura brought two 12-ounce containers of ceviche home from Sierra Nevada Friday. We enjoyed this wonderful treat with Mission tortilla chips and Cuervo margaritas while we played a Trivial Pursuit tournament on Saturday. I was victorious. Following the tournament, we watched "Billy Graham: God's Ambassador." It was a beautiful tribute to an awesome man of God. For dinner, we had pan-seared ahi steaks and oven fries.

Yesterday, following service at Harvest Christian Center, we did our weekly grocery shopping at Sav-Mor Foods. We relaxed and watched the first half of a documentary on Henry VIII. Laura had to leave to attend a meeting at Harvest Christian Center. I recorded the balance of the documentary. We shall watch it tonight.

While Laura grilled chicken breasts, I made a green bean dish: I poached fresh green beans for three minutes, plunged them into cold water, drained them, and set them aside. I sautéed large green onion, garlic, white mushroom, Jalapeño, and tomato in La Conda Ranch extra-virgin olive oil. When this mixture was cooked, I tossed in the green beans and removed the pan from the stove. The dinner was wonderful, and Laura will enjoy leftovers for her lunch today.
