We learned how to make pupusas this last weekend! (It was National Pupusa Day yesterday), and they are not all that hard to make. Of course maybe its because I have inherited some of moms AMAZING cooking skills, Just kidding, but I have gotten good at just throwing things on the frying pan and hoping that it turns out good. I have a few recipes that I like using for breakfast! :) Going back to the pupusas, I am slowing getting addicted to them, and with me losing weight, eating a whole bunch of them is my only way to counter that! (These things make one fat). I have eaten over 300 pupusas (Yes, I have been keeping count) this last year, so I made the goal to eat 1000 by the time I come home! Thankfully, we have a 60 pound bar in the back yard to be able to lift some weights, so I dont think I will come home too fat! ;) (Although lets be honest, I don't think I could get fat even if I wanted to...)
You know, you would think that just bringing 8 ties to the mission field will get you by the 2 years...ha nope! You end up with 75 after 1 year. I promise that I wont come home with more than 150 ties. :) Plus the mini earthquakes that we have started to get often have been pretty cool, but any stronger and longer, and then that is when things start getting sketchy. Speaking of sketchy, there is a neighborhood in our area where the gangsters GUARD the entrance. Not anyone can just walk right in, but thankfully the gangs know and respect the missionaries so we can walk right past the guards , and they don't do anything. Of course, we take our pre cautions to leave any valueables at home if we have planned to go there so we are a little more safe from being robbed. They can steal the $2 watch that I bought a while back that doesn't even tell you the time, but I would hate to have my white tan line exposed. El Salvador is pretty sweet, I love it here, but it is crazy to think that in almost exactly 1 year I come home. I try not to think about it, but still one cant help but notice! Anyway, I love you guys, thanks for your constant support and prayers. You are in mine as well! I love hearing from what the other RMs have to say! Hey, tell Hermana Foster Hi for me, and that it was awesome to be in the same district in Ilobasco! And tell Elder Going hi for me as well! Fun stuff, well I see see you guys next week!
