Memorial Day

For those of you who don't know, Jaron was recently called to be 2nd Counselor in the Elder's Quorum. Each year they put on a huge breakfast for everyone in our 900 court (about 300 people), this year the new President was in Hawaii over Memorial Day with his family and left Jaron in charge. Little did I know that meant I was in charge.

A few days before we got a TON of food from Costco, the most bacon I've ever seen (we practically cleaned them out), 5 containers of 5 dozen eggs, turkey sausage, just add water pancake mix and tang. In order to get everything ready for the breakfast we had to prepare the night before, I whipped a good amount of the eggs and put them in Tupperware for easy storage and pouring, we mixed all the pancake batter and Tang in drink coolers and defrosted the bacon in our tub.

Despite all our preparation we were not prepared for the rainy Memorial morning, 300 people didn't show up and we had about half of everything leftover. We had a really good time despite the rain and we didn't run out of bacon, which was the goal.
