Today is beautiful! The sun is shining, the wind is low, the sky is clear, and the birds are singing! It is forecast to be in the low 70s through the weekend. I realize we need rain, but this is certainly nicer!

When I bought Ahi fillets at Sav-Mor Foods earlier in the week, I used one fillet for the salad I described in an earlier post. The other fillet remains vacuum-sealed and waiting use. I believe I shall make sushi tomorrow evening!

For dinner last evening, we enjoyed egg and bacon burritos. I cracked and beat six Eggland's Best eggs and cut 15 slices of cooked bacon into one-inch pieces and added to the eggs. I seasoned this with Tony Chachere's More Spice and cooked until fluffy and done. Laura warmed four large Mission flour tortillas. At the table, we assembled burritos—adding grated extra-sharp cheddar cheese, fresh Chiles d'Arbo, crushed red peppers, and Louisiana hot sauce. Following dinner, we attended Bible class at Harvest Christian Center.
