Today we went out to a restaurant to eat lunch. Some of the people in our groups ordered mince pies. Don looked at that but didn't think mince pie sounded too good. But he soon found out that mincemeat is actually hamburger. Some of the other things that are different are: checkmark = tic mark clapping=speeding give way=yield please indicate=turn on blinker lift=elevator flat=apartment brilliant=great bacon=ham
Today at work we saw a fire in the direction of our flat. Then when we came home the road was closed by fire trucks and the fire was only about 2 blocks from us. The firemen had a hard time getting to the fire because it was in the rear of the house with houses below it on a steep hill.
I tried baking brownies tonight but the oven is gas which has to be lit every time it is used and there isn't any degrees only numbers 1 through 9. Someone said to use 5 because it is in the middle. However, the brownies looked done on the outside but they were raw on the inside.
Friday we feed the missionaries so I hope my casserole will cook.
