I learned one very important thing this week, apart from everything that was said at conference. That one very important thing is that it is not good to use random salty-looking substances for cooking, even if you were told at one point that it was sea salt.
You see, my companion decided to make a recipe that we had for Sea Salt Potatoes, and I was pretty sure that this stuff that we had in a bag was sea salt. So, he used it to cook up his potatoes. The thing is, it turned out to be salt. Just the wrong type of salt. It was Epsom salt. Anyway, just so that all of you know, Potatoes cooked with Epsom salt are not the best things. But hey, it all worked out in the end.
Anyway, apart from that, the week was really good. Of course, there was General Conference. That was pretty much amazing. From all that I’ve read so far, everybody else loved it, too. I loved all of the talks, and it would be impossible to pick any favorite one. But I will say this, everything about it was amazing.
We ended up watching all of the sessions in English, because my companion wanted to see it all in English. He didn’t want to take a chance of not understanding something. Anyway, it turned out just great. We switched between the two Stake Centers that we cover, and on Sunday between the sessions we had an activity in one of the branches, with food and everything. We even made a cake.
Apart from all of that, it was a pretty normal week. We had our interviews with Pres. Bassett, which were plenty good. They’re always enjoyable.
But yeah, that was about it for the week. Oh, yeah. We also went to the temple this morning, which was good stuff. We went early this morning and met up with Elder King, my last companion. He came down from Payson, and then we went to Pete’s “famous” Fish & Chips. It was pretty good, though I think that I may have burned my tongue. Mostly, it was good, but I’m not sure that it was quite worth it for all the deep-fat-friedness.
But yeah, I think that just about does it for the week’s news. Enjoy!
