Tonight we had Missla's cousin over for dinner. They are a really cool couple and have a new baby girl and a six year old son. After dinner's revelry and merriment, we played "Qwirkle" a game much like Scrabble, but instead of making words, the tiles all have 6 shapes in 6 colors, and you line up the tiles in rows and columns. (Like colors in columns, like shapes in rows.) When you complete all 6 tiles in a row or column, it is a Quirkle, and is worth 12 points. I don't like to brag too much, but I got 5 Qwirkles and won the game.
Earlier in the day I had spent 7 hours building a sled with the scouts for our Klondike Derby race. I was pretty worn out, so I'm glad I picked something easy. This is a variation on the Shrimp Paad Thai that was featured earlier. I tweaked it just a little and I think it turned out better.
