|October Batch at the Cebu Temple...|
|and at the airport (most, anyway).|
Most everyone, at one time or another, has seen what they thought was a large hamburger. For their departing dinner this time the missionaries chose to go to a restaurant other than Army Navy which has been the traditional go-to restaurant for the final meal together, at least while we've been here. Apparently there is another place named Casa Verde that has also been used in the past. We heard that this was also a nice place and that they had a large specialty burger. We thought it would be fun to go somewhere new.
We ordered a sandwich to share and didn't really look at the burger options so when a large hamburger appeared with a super size milk shake we thought, "This is it. This must be the big one that the missionaries had talked about."
It was indeed a big burger, but then...
|Elder Baladad VS The Mighty Ton|
From the menu:
The Mighty Ton - We take a kilo of our USDA tenderloin patty and stuff it in our homemade 12-inch bun with all the trimmings of 125 grams of bacon, an overload of american cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, sauteed onions and mushrooms and paired with your choice of barbecue, cheese or sour cream fries.
That's over 2 pounds of hamburger with about 1/4 lb of bacon.
Although he made a good showing, even Elder Baladad was no match for The Mighty Ton. A take out box was needed.
We have another office couple! Elder and Sister Weatherston are now here. They arrived on Thursday and are from Logan, Utah. We are looking forward to working with them and getting to know them better. They will be a welcome addition to the mission.

Thought for the week.
