Lindsey

She's here! She's fabulous! The kids love her! And, so far, she's putting up with us - particularly my terrible attempts to speak in an English accent. She's a trooper. I'll have pictures and details later.

The most difficult part has been food since we don't cook. So far she does not like cheese, fish, olives, and pizza with cheese. She has eaten (without complaint, well she doesn't actually complain so that's not really a good qualification) hot dogs, pizza without cheese, fajitas, guacamole (for the first time), Chickfila, and spaghetti and meatballs. Dinners shall be a challenge until we get into a routine.

Tell me what are no-go items and I'll see about getting some quick fix ideas for you.

Fantastic! I think I've named the biggies: fish and cheese.

Mom said...

American hamburgers are much better than in England. Is there a particular type of cheese she dislikes; there are so many different types of cheese.

Theresa said...

She doesn't like any kind of cheese, including cream cheese. Oh, and I think she mentioned that she doesn't like sour cream.

Mom said...

Can you let Ashley Martin that I am keeping them in my prayers? I know this is going to be some difficult months ahead.

Theresa said...

I will do that, but I think you want to be praying for Amy (Thomas's wife) whose father has decided against cancer treatment.

Theresa said...

There is always chicken fried steak, totilla soup, meatloaf, chicken gumbo, red beans & rice, kolaches and chili. Can you guess what food I miss?

Mom said...

I meant Amy, Thomas' wife.
