Well, Wade has decided he wants to live "spartan" while on this mission! He wants to relive his days in Central America 45 years ago and keeps telling that he will eat rice and beans for every meal. Now I can handle rice and beans on occasion with a few spices (which I don't have yet) added to give more flavor and with so m any other interesting things to try, I get a little, no a lot, frustrated with him over his need to relive his days as a 19 year old missionary! So last night I gave in and made rice and beans . . . Doesn't this look delicious?? Wade seems to be enjoying them - he said they tasted good. I said a little bland! Not sure what his face says though!
Now for Wade's two cents . . . . . . . or should I say his 20 dollars . . . . . . . . :)
"I really don't think "spartan" has anything to do with my first mission. I think it has to do with living the word of wisdom. But our biggest problem is that I think it is an asset and she thinks it is a liability. I really wanted a different experience here. I didn't want it to be all the luxury of home. And Connie only mentioned a few things she bought. She didn't mention the butter, and the container she bought and that was just today. Every time we go to the store it costs me $20. Her kitchen is soon going to look just like it is at home. Elder Jewkes"
For now, I am willing to not eat like a queen, but I'm not so sure about this 'spartan' stuff!!
