1.) At Relief Society tonight we learned about freezing food. We got a handout that told us all about it and in it there was a section about safe defrosting. Basically it said to do it in the fridge, and to not do it in several placed, including 1.) the car and 2.) the dishwasher. This makes me believe that there have been people who, on Thanksgiving morning, started panicking that their turkey wasn't thawed so they just strapped it into their car and ran some errands. Or threw it in the dishwasher with a few dirty forks and ran a load. I really hope so.
2.) Oh, the grand time Flat Rachel is going to have during her Summer of Fun. New Zealand! Tunisia! New York! Arizona! Utah! Nebraska! The exotic southern California Wine Country with a possible field trip to THE Ohio! Cerritos with a possible field trip to Bakersfield! Plus Chris has promised dance class and bedazzled pants. I'm pretty sure I'm already jealous of my flat self. Here's the plan: If you want to participate email me your address and I'll work up an itinerary. I was thinking that instead of you sending her back to me you could send her on to her next location and we'll see how far she can go. I'll work out the details and get her a passport and pack some sunscreen and we'll get this rolling. I'm very excited. I plan to throw her a big welcome home party when she gets back. There will be a slide show. And popsicles.
