Fried Oreo Cookies

Hello everyone,

We love fried oreo cookies.  It's super easy and a delicious desert. Here is the recipe for you. It's pancake mix. I have one of those huge bags it's blue... I think it's Krusteaz? I'm not exactly sure, it's the one we always buy, oreos or twist and shouts from walmart, basically the same exact thing and oil about 300 or 350 degrees, we just turn the stove top to high let it get hot put 1 SMALL drop of water in wait till it starts popping and then turn it down to med high. Then you dip an oreo into the batter, use a fork to get the whole thing covered real well, then fork it out and drop it in the hot oil. you want to put the oil in a pot make sure the oil is like 2 and a half inches or 3 inches deep. after you drop the batter covered oreo into the hot oil you'll want to use tongs or something to flip it a few times so it cooks evenly and then pull them out and stick them on a plate with paper towels to soak up the grease. I'm sure you could look it up on line like on youtube and watch a video of how to do it. It's pretty simple.

I'm trying to keep it off the weight but it is , but it's tough.

So this past week not to many thing happened. probably the most exciting thing was going down to Odessa to baptize Becca! :D I was about ready to cry when we were in the font. It was so great to see her make the decision to get baptized. Oh there is a book her husband needs to look up. "The Little Book of Book Of Mormon Evidences" - John Hilton. If you post it on the blog she'll make sure he knows about it. 

Besides the baptism not to much has happened. We've found someone new to teach. He's brilliant about the bible, and super hard to teach. He has read the New testament over a thousand times. Literally. He quotes scriptures like a BOSS. The hardest thing is he's developed his own views about certain things, and we can't convince him of anything so we're really pushing him to pray about Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon. He said he should have it read all the way through in a week or so! that's ridiculously fast. haha 

We got a package yesterday!  It was great.  We loved opening it :) Elder Simpson was in heaven especially with the zingers and ding dongs.  He loved the apron.  

Next Monday is transfers so if you send anything before then send it to the mission office and it'll get to me.

I love you and I hope everything is going well. I appreciated this spiritual thought. It was really good.

D&C 64:33-34 "33 Wherefore, be not weary in well-doing, for ye are laying the foundation of a great work. And out of small things proceedeth that which is great.

34 Behold, the Lord requireth the heart and a willing mind; and the willing and obedient shall eat the good of the lad of Zion in these last day."
