Week 2: Food, food, and more food.

Our daughter mentioned than it seemed all we talk about has to do with food. Hmmmm, come to think of it, that may be right. If anyone has any ideas for future posts that would be interesting, we are more than willing to share whatever interests you. So, until then, I think I’ll just post more about food. And whatever else comes to mind.

This photo does not do justice to the fatigue I was feeling after traipsing to the store and back, seriously against the wind BOTH WAYS. I was hoping the snow that was covering my coat would show, but it either had melted already or was less than I thought.

The next few photos were taken last Friday on a tour of the factory in our neighborhood for a group of students from Augustana College in Sioux Falls, SD. The factory was originally built in the late 1880s as a sawmill. Over the years, it has changed to iron works, ship building, and a papermill. It finally closed for good in 2006. The apartments in which we and a number of students from ACN live once housed the factory workers and their families.

Inside one of the large, empty buildings. The company which bought all of the buildings and surrounding land has big plans for future development. This will be an indoor shopping mall.

Constitution Hall, built in 1778, behind which is the ACN, is where we and the students ate a lovely traditional dinner of stew. I didn't take a picture of the stew. Just imagine stew.

The factory tour included the back of our apartments--ours is right over my right shoulder. Top two floors.

Our friends, Britt and Astrid, during a little lunch following church yesterday. We had an Indian soup with chicken, apples, and curry.

For dessert, Astrid prepared risgrøt with currants.

So, enough about food, eh? I do take more photos than I post on here–perhaps to post them one day or perhaps just for my memory’s sake. Thanks for reading, and please, share this blog with anyone else you think may be interested…in food. 😉
