We are trying a new recipe tonight! I'll let you know how it goes. Around my house I constantly hear, "I WANT TO HELP," "I WANT TO HELP!" Read that back in the most whiney voice possible. Repeat 40 times. That would be Noa and Ruthie (sometimes Lyd), letting me know that dinner prep will take 30 minutes longer than normal. Some days I'm up for the challenge. Today was one of those days. I'll let you know how the recipe turns out. We're having Honey Garlic Meatballs, with rice and zucchini! Noa and Ruthie were incredible helpers today!
|This was the 5th attempt to get them both smiling and looking at me. Not working. Separate bowls because everything, of course, has to be fair and equal.|
|Ruthie was grossed out by the meat at first, but after a while she went for it.|
|Look at how pathetic he looks! Poor buddy.|
|And another. So sad. But anyway... back to the meatballs.|
|Here we are! I'm trying this recipe tonight. I asked the girls to roll them in 1" balls and, for the most part, they did pretty good. Towards the end, they just started smashing them into the dish, so I had to take over. But it was a good 10 minutes before that started happening!|
|Thankfully, the night before the Man Retreat, Russ and I went out to a new restaurant downtown that we loved! It is called The Rarebit. Fabulous ambiance, great prices, and even better food. Russ had chicken and waffles, I had fish 'n' chips, and we shared a Lentil Salad, which sounds gross but it was great. I wanted to order it because it was different than something I would usually pick, even though I was really wanting the onion rings. I've never met an onion ring I didn't immediately eat. But, now we have to go back so I can try the onion rings. It was all part of a greater plan.|
