"So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen.
For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal."
II Corinthians 4:18

Mac and Cheese

Only had 5 girls show up last night, and 3 of them were mine. But that's OK, my older girls know how to make a rue and cheese sauce so the younger girls were able to do it all. It tasted yummy. In real life, I don't follow a recipe very closely, might not be the best method to teach girls how to cook, if they don't know how to follow a recipe. I'll have to work on that.

Making a Rue.
If you can make a rue you can make lots of things, white sauce, "Cream of" sauces, (no more canned soups) Cheese sauce, gravy-both white/milk and brown,
and cheese soup just to name a few.

Macaroni boiling

Getting the lumps out. A whisk, in this case a balloon whisk, is the best
tool for the job.

We did a short detour in February learning about Organization/Orderliness.

We organized a storage room, where the AWANA game supplies, Shoebox ministry and the Master's Business supplies are stored. The girls also went through the food pantry, organizing, rotating the stock & pulling out of date goods.
