Well my mother believes my last post was incredibly boring. Which it was. But I had nothing else exciting to write about. And I do use all of those kitchen items a lot. Plus nobody tied her to her computer and made her read my blog. So there. But I will try to be less boring, if that's even possible.

Bech and I have been having trouble figuring out the new schedule of this semester. I now have class most mornings (and staff meeting the one morning I don't have class), lunches with students most days, then I work every afternoon. Then several nights a week I have MCF related stuff. Last weekend was really tough. I babysat for a family all weekend, while Bech stayed at the mens home at the Mustard Seed. So we didn't see each other from Friday morning until Sunday night.

Of course, that will not be the norm but we were in need of a date night. Bech hadn't had sushi in a while, so we went to Sakura Bana (or you can call it Little Tokyo #1, whichever), which has the best sushi in Jackson, no question (but they just lost the JFP best of Jackson to Nagoya! Nagoya...really? That shouldn't even be a competition...Little Tokyo is SO much better!). Anyway, back to the topic, we went to Little Tokyo and Bech got his beloved Chirashi. I tried a new roll, the scorpion, which was amazing. Plus, we tried Saki, which was amazing!

After dinner, we watched our latest Netflix movie (we are HUGE netflix fans), "Paper Heart." It's a pseudo-documentary by Michael Cera and Charlyne Yi. It was sorta weird but really cute! I would suggest it, especially if you like Michael Cera. I think he is so charming, in a completely awkward way.

So that's what we've been up to lately. Tonight, we are making hamburgers. We have not eating regular beef, so we haven't had a hamburger since last summer. But we ordered a portion of a grass fed cow (we actually got it in about 2 months ago), so we are going to use that meat. Bech is going to attempt to make homemade ketchup, but I'm not sure how that will turn out.

Okay, Mom, is that better?

Yes, much better...I guess it isn't fair to compare your posts now with those from Malawi! Your house smelled delicious last night when I dropped off the mail! I wish Dad wasn't on call and we could have come for dinner. Dad grilled a steak for me (corn-fed...he must have forgotten what we saw on Food, Inc) and we watched 500 days of summer. It was really good.
