So, have you ever had Hawaiian haystacks before? I had never even heard of them until I came to BYU, and since I came out here, I have had them at ward activities I believe three times. Jeff had never heard of them until he served his mission in California, and he had them at a member's home. So, are they a Mormon thing or a Western thing? Does anyone know? Or did Jeff and I just grow up in ignorance of this delightful dish?

The base is rice. Then you pour some yummy chicken gravy concoction over that. Then you add all your toppings. Christine had pineapple, green onions, green peppers, black olives tomatoes, cheese, and chow mein noodles. It's possible I'm forgetting something . . . And that's it. So good. :)
After dinner, we played some mad rounds of Uno Attack. The Nays had never played it before, and I wanted a game without too much strategy. By the end of the day, my brain (already not functioning at peak performance) is pretty much done.
