Manti Temple trip

Tuesday, August 11, 2009 we headed down to Manti for a baptism trip. We only had 4 girls and 80 names so each girl was able to do 20. Kurt Albach once again accompanied us and helped with the temple work. Thank you so much for your support, Brother Albach!!! It was a beautiful day and the temple grounds were stunning! This was also Alicia's first baptism trip. A great experience!!! We're doing great, girls!

We had a cute MASH theme for youth conference this year. The youth woke up to revelry and did calesthenics. We had a FUN obstacle course that turned into a water battle (fight) and of course they had KP duty.
We were nestled in a little valley surrounded by magnificent cliffs and a little river going through camp. We had amazing youth and it was a great experience all around.
The last morning we did a 5:00 hike to the top of a pinnacle. There we had testimony meeting and watched the sun rise. Awesome!

We got together at Sister Johnson's house where she taught us to make Southwestern egg rolls. We had fun snacking on chips and salsa, chatting, and helping out in the kitchen...and the egg rolls were WONDERFUL! (They must be healthy because they had spinach.)

The recipe:
Southwest Egg Rolls
4 chicken breasts or 1 rotisserie chicken
1-2 T. oil
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 bunch green onions, chopped
1 pkg baby spinach
1 c. frozen corn
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1-2 T. diced, canned jalapenos
1-2 T. chopped parsley
2 t. cumin
2 t. chili powder
1 t. salt
Dash cayenne pepper
2-3 c. shredded Mexican cheese
1 pkg uncooked flour tortillas

Cook and shred the chicken. Heat the oil in a pan ad saute the bell pepper, green onions and spinach. Add the corn, beans, jalapeno, parsley and spices. Stir and add the cheese and remove from heat. Use 1/2 cup (or more) filling per tortilla and roll up egg roll (or burrito ) style. Bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes.

Avocado Ranch Sauce

1-2 avocados, smashed
1/2- 1 c. mayo (can use light)
1/2-1 c. sour cream (can use light)

Mix all ingredients and serve with the egg rolls!

A few weeks ago we got together to make a quilt for Haley Molyneux's new baby, Sophia. Rachel and Madison picked the cute giraffe print and McKinlee,
Danielle, and Alicia helped to tie it. Cute!!!

Saturday, July 11, 2009

June 30 to July 3 was spent at Camp MIA Shalom. The theme was Anchored in Christ and we were the ship O.A.S.I.S. It was quick this year, but every minute was busy. We had a chance to do waterfront, crafts, and games one day. We spent some time getting all the girls certified. Yeah!!! They all did! Good job girls.
As usual the stake presidency did a humorous skit (but we learned that NAVY stands for Neatly Anchored Valiant Youth) then President Olsen gave a brief talk.
Our Bishopric all came for dinner and testimony meeting on the last evening. We always love to see them...especially with key lime cheesecake!
