This week is a little more busy then most of my weeks in Israel have been so far.
We have friends from our church back in Minnesota who are here visiting on a tour. We got to join up with this tour group yesterday and see some sites with them that we hadn't visited yet.
But more than the sites we visited are the friends that we have been able to visit with. It is so sweet and special to have friends from the u.s.a visit us in our home in Israel. It is going to be sad to see them leave again at the end of this week. It reminds me just how much I miss my family and friends back home.
Tyler and I caved in to our Settlers of Catan addiction and bought the game at a shop near by. It will give us something to do with each other on our quiet evenings by ourselves or open the door to making new friends.
My computer charger broke last week, so I haven't been able to do as much writing lately. But thankfully I can use Tyler's computer when he is not needing it for school.
I made some Vegetarian Chili this week which turned out quite delicious if I do say so myself. I am definitely not a vegetarian myself, but because meat is rather expensive here, Tyler and I have been eating a lot less meat then usual. It has been fun to learn new things in cooking and learn to cook without some things.
I also made Shakshuka, a popular Israeli dish, last week which turned out really delicious, as well, and definitely something we will be making again.
