Mongolia day today. We had a bunch of errands to do so didn't spend a lot of time learning about Mongolia. We did attempt to pronounce the capital city of Ulaanbaatar. We listened to the national anthem, which is quite pretty. You can read the lyrics here. Bug liked the flag with the extra decorations on the side! We also counted from 1 to 10. Here's a picture of the Cyrillic symbols and pronunciations.

We spent quite a bit of time catching up on watching the Olympics. We've been Tivo-ing parts the kids might like since it comes on so late.
For dinner we had Mongolian Beef. I followed the recipe on A Year of Crockpotting. Easy!

I thought the meat was pretty good but there was a lot of sauce and it had a little too much kick to it. The kids didn't really care for it either, although they liked the sauce more than the meat.
