Every weekend, we are extremely blessed to have a cook come to the house to cook for the students and us. Having household "staff" is still a very weird feeling for both of us, but we aren't complaining (at all)!!
I do find myself a bit startled on occassion by the smells and sounds that are emitted from the dorm kitchen when the cook is here. I am especially astonished by what I will see sitting around in giant bowls and pans waiting to be cooked up. This is what was on the menu last Saturday...
Anyone interested in joining us next weekend???
In all fairness, these foods that look so strange to me are usually cooked up into a dish that is surprisingly tasty.

How we got here ... with a couple babies!
We first met on July 7, 2006. We'd both quit our jobs and gotten rid of nearly all our possessions. We had joined the Peace Corps and were heading to the Kingdom of Tonga in the South Pacific. We thought we were prepared for whatever lay ahead ... neither of us had a clue.
Just over 10 months after we first met, we were MARRIED! Since then our adventures have included:
- a year in New York City, living in a Harlem brownstone apartment - going off-the-grid & into a tent-cabin on tiny Angaur island in Palau - living with a bunch of teenagers in Shanghai, China while working as dormitory parents
- off-the-grid again & into a barn on 400 forested acres in Vermont
- at the base of volcanos in beautiful Panajachel, Guatemala
And now ... on the hunt for a new career, we find ourselves in IDAHO!
We love to experience this great big world and hope you will join us for the journey!
