Day 82: Some Home Cooking

Hello Family!

I wanted to share with you the fruits of your wonderful care packages!  The other day I was walking through the PX and saw that they had received a shipment of frozen pork chops.  Needless to say, I got pretty excited.  I purchased a pack for about $6 and brought them home for my next weekend day off.  Using the rice and soup you sent, I was able to make one of my most favorite meals in the whole world.  As you can see from the picture, I did not have any potatoes, but it was fabulous even still.  So, I wanted to thank you for all of the time and effort you put in to sending those packages.  It really felt great to have something that you really like when you don't usually have many options.

Love you all!

Where are the vegetables?! Argh! (Other than that, it looks did a great job!)

When Mama is away... there are NO veggies on the plate. I found that out when I left my sweet man and 7 kids to spend two weeks with my sister in Italy last fall. I got home and the fridge I had so carefully stocked still contained a shocking amount of fruit and veggies.

How wonderful that you blessed your darling with home cooking all the way around the world. Now that is one to share at 365!
