Kloots, Wings, and Crads

Those were our team names last night. We played couples Scrabble with the Klootwyks and Ewings, fierce competitors indeed. As you can see, Andy and Jessica made good use of the "z," adding a "g" to "laze" to make "glaze" and then the word "hid" to make "glazed." I wish I would have added up the scoring mileage they got from that one letter!

Winn made white chocolate mochas all around, and we gorged ourselves on fresh-out-of-the-oven pumpkin pie with extra whipped cream on top. But even better than the hot eats, cool treats, and literary feats (clever, ey?) was the company of these four individuals, each an encouragement and delight to us. Let's do it again soon!

Before the Scrabble match, we had cheesy wild rice soup, spinach feta bread, and oriental salad for dinner. The soup is a delicious recipe from my friend Kelly. Just click on the picture of the bowl of soup to view the recipe.

Yummy! I made that soup for our church "souper game night supper" and everyone asked me for the recipe. And the pie looks delicious!
