Sunday Dinner (At Home)

*This post was written and saved as a draft two weeks ago…*
Yesterday was Sunday, and since we can’t go to meeting right now, we had a simple Sunday School at our house, singing some songs and saying our verses. It was nice, because it set the day apart as the Lord’s Day, instead of just another weekday. We’ve been doing this ever since we couldn’t go to the meeting room, and us kids all look forward to it.
 Later in the day, we listened to the live broadcast Common Thoughts of Christ, and we really enjoyed it. Check it out if you have time to listen to it. The broadcasts start at 2:30, i think, and usually go on for an hour and a half.
For lunch, my dad wanted to try out his new wok. A wok is like a pan for cooking, only it’s shaped like a bowl and can withstand much higher temperatures.
So, he decided to cook a stirfry lunch for us. He’d been wating to try it out for a long time, and finally got all the necissary pieces to do it. The last few days, he’s been buying ingredients and planning the meal, and was prepared to cook yesterday.
Us kids were divided into groups of two, and then each group chose a combination of vegetables to add to their shared stirfry. Here’s the stir-fry orders for each group:
I love all the bright colors of veggies. So pretty!
Slicing, dicing, chopping, mincing, and more.
Rainbow Pepper. 🙂
My dad marinated the meat for a while before frying it, and I think that’s what made the meat so good in the finished dish.
Each pair of kids shared a big plate of stirfry, and these were the vegetables to add to each one.
Butler and Lulu were the first pair to get their lunch . Because a wok uses such high temperatures, the food does not take long to finish, so they didn’t have to wait long to eat.
First, my dad cooked the meat,
Then he fried the veggies, put the meat back in, added noodles, cooked that together for a bit… 
…and the dish was done!
It was so good.
My mom sliced the green onions long-wise, and they looked fancy and pretty when she was finished
Ginger. I love the smell of fresh ginger! It was delicious in the finished dish, giving just a hint of flavour. 
Of course, I also had to take a picture of the cherry blossoms. How could I not?! Look how pretty it is!
So cute! Pixie was in a good mood, and I managed to get lots of pictures with her smiling. 
Nature is so beautiful. We are fortunate enough to live on property with lots of land, so we get to see this every day. 
Everyone loves Pixie!
That’s all for this post, but I’m working on a few others at the moment, so check back because I have a tendency to post at random moments sporadically.

  1. My dad loves his wok! He's constantly planning new meals. My favorite dish he has made so far is sweet and sour pork. It tasted better than the restaurant version.
