Later, for lunch, I tried out a new recipe and baked some rolls/muffins. Sybil had posted a link to some dinner rolls she had made and they sounded very yummy and easy (flour, baking powder, salt, milk, and mayonnaise). I read the reviews which said the rolls were very salty as given in the recipe (1 tsp.), and Sybil said she used no salt, at all, so, I reduced the salt to 1/2 tsp., and used Miracle Whip instead of mayonnaise, since that's what I have. But the recipe was very easy and quick to mix up. According to the recipe, it makes 5 rolls, but I was able to make 6:
They reminded me of baking powder biscuits, similar to the ones I like to get from my favorite fried chicken place!

After lunch, I washed all the dishes that had piled up on the sink. I think Dancer puts them in there when I am not at home!
In the evening, I went to the temple as they were having a special ceremony during which 1,000 tealight candles were lit as an offering of light:

After the candles were lit, blessings were chanted and refreshments served.
Then, I came home, changed out of the all white clothes I wore to the temple, and got dressed to go to the monthly prayer gathering at my aunt T's house. My cousin and her daughter gave me a ride there and back. It was aunt's 90th birthday, earlier this week, so, after the prayers and dinner, we presented her with a birthday cake and sang Happy Birthday to her. Aunt had ordered Thai food for dinner and later, she had us all take plates of it home!
After I came home, I chatted a bit with my daughter.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Being able to attend the special ceremony at the temple.
- Being able to attend the monthly prayer gathering at my aunt's home.
- Being able to celebrate aunt's 90th birthday.
- My cousin giving me a ride to the prayer gathering.
- Getting together with family and friends.
How was your Saturday?
