Various Meals.....

At the end of my last post I mentioned John and I were having dinner "date night" while Justin had a sleep over at his friend Tyson's. They enjoyed part of the "Snow Fest" that is a week long event here, while we enjoyed John's wonderful bacon-wrapped filet, covered in bleu cheese, a baked potato with all the trimmings (chives, n/f sour cream and cheese), Caesar salad and a wonderful Cabernet. It was deliciuos; John is really a pro at the grill!!!

I have been braver (LOL) and have been letting Jacob "go to town" with bowls and spoons and what not, to see how he does. Amazingly enough...while he made a HUGE mess with this Gerber rice cereal (complete with yogurt and fruit) it was basically on the tray and the bib. Just a few drops on the floor cover and a bit on him. He did NOT throw the bowl or spoon on the ground (which I had anticipated and read much about), he only tossed his cup, which he does normally. He sure had a great time! I can't believe he's almost 1....Panic Attack!!!! LOL

Last night I made Rachel Ray's "Spaghetti Alla Carbonara; Coal Miner's Pasta"; it's a favorite in our household! Mmmm! I took some spaghetti out first (before all the garlic and goodies) and John chopped it up for Jake. He LOVED it! And I must say, it was a great meal for him; and super EASY cleanup for me!!!!!
