Journal entry – 8 Apr 2016, Fri – Rainy cooking day

Forecasting rain so we plan for inside fun. With a borrowed car for the day we head into SLO and grab coffee at a new shop while looking at trail maps for Sequoia and Kings Canyon Nat Parks. Plan out a couple of trails/features we don’t want to miss and decide on a campground to stay at while visiting.

On the way back to the house we pick up some groceries and then it’s time for fun in the kitchen. Karen has a book of soup recipes and we’ve picked out one for supper – it’s a modified chicken noodle soup, with cinnamon and allspice and more. Ends up being delicious!

Once the pots simmering Ashley breaks out the kitchenaid and makes cookies. They’re a nice surprise for everyone after the tasty soup.
