Peach Pie for Sweetie Mr. Phil!
Sweetest Ladies in the Whole Wide World!
First off thank you so much for all the sweet comments. I couldn't write to you yesterday because our internet went off because of a storm that came through on Sunday afternoon. The rain was wonderful. We have been praying for rain and the Lord gave it! 1 1/2" of much needed rain. Thank you very much for all the kind comments. Some made me cry. Remember I am the bawl baby! That is okay though!
Okay, now some of you wanted to hear about the day. You can't believe our hats we have to wear!!!!!! I look so funny, honest. I would see myself in the reflection of the glass and just have to giggle. My honey looked cute and so did Tay.
How many of you have seen I Love Lucy when she was in the kitchen on some of her programs. Well, that was me today. I had this huge mixer. Huge mixer!!!!! I had all my stuff in it like butter, sugar, flour; all the ingredients needed for Lemon Poppy Seed Bread. Now I am having to learn alllllll kinds of new things and it is very hard right now to keep it all in my brain. Anyway I turned on the switch and it had been left on very fast. I had food going all around the area. I turned it off very fast. I looked around hoping no one would have seen. I just cleaned up my mess and kept going. I can tell you it was very stressful. I think we did real good though. Taylor and I are together and she is so helpful. We learned a lot about making sure we have our water to drink next to us before we start working. We went 5 hours without a break and water. That will not happen tomorrow! We didn't have any food until 1:30, and hadn't had any breakfast. Tooooo nervous.
Oh and remember the lady that I thought might be a little grouchy the first day we all met? She came up to me today and said, I just want you to know that I have worked in this kitchen for many years. I have worked for some really not kind bosses, that just would cuss at the workers. She said she asked the Lord to bring some Christians to work in the kitchen with her. The Lord answered her some years back by giving our main boss. Then last year the Lord gave her our Head Chef who is kind and loves Jesus. Then she got real close and she said, "they told me that your whole family loved the Lord." It was so precious! I knew the day we all were there for orientation that something was up. Wow, She said she had been praying for some more. I guess the Lord picked us!
We baked two huge pans of Focaccia Bread, 1 Coffee Cake, 2 Lemon Poppy Seed Bundt Cakes, 16 dozen chocolate chip cookies ,the oven was not like mine at home and we burned 8 dozen, (on the job training!), 3 large pans of Chocolate Cake and 2 large pans of Blackberry Cobbler, and a Chocolate Truffle Desserts. All from scratch. If any have any good recipes, please email them to me. I need ideas.
I thought I would put a picture of the peach pie I made Mr. Phil. It turned out so good!
I am so tired........ so off to bed. Thank you for praying. I wanted to just cry a few times today, when I thought about my home. I will get over it.........maybe!
Love you all,
