Janet's brother came to town a week ago to meet Cecelia. It was nice to have him here for a few days.

Tummy time for Celia!

This was the best meal of the dinnerplate.com samples. It's pork tenderloin with butttered noodles. The pork was flavored with garlic, onion, applesauce and wine, and tasted great! The buttered noodles were fine, and we added the grean beans.

The only drawback of the meal was Merrill choked on a piece of meat, and I had to perform the Heimleich on him (which worked). Good thing I was in the room.

Dad has his hands full.

There was one dessert to try on in the sample meals we got from dinnerplate.com. It was this rasberry yogurt/jello blend in a grahm cracker crust. Accented here with cherry jello jigglers in a jelly bean shape.

This was similar to a rasberry cake Janet usually makes in the summer (with real rasberrys). This was good, but not as good as Janet's cake.

Salisbury steak was Dinnerplate.com's suggestion for a meal tonight. Janet said it was pretty easy to make. We thought it was good, and worth keeping.

Zach's reception after the baptism was in the church, so we let Maeve crawl after her cousins (and 2nd cousins). It is so fun to watch her interact with them!

Our first online meal


Our first online meal
Originally uploaded by Linkert.
Janet and I are trying to bring some variety to our meals. Through a Star Tribune article from a couple months ago, we checked out a website called, dinnerplate.com. It's a service that will email you a weeks worth of recipes to try out. It includes a shopping list. So we are going to try it for the next week or so.

The first meal is Chicken Picante with Creamed Spinach. We really enjoyed the chicken, which was flavored with picante sause, with mustard and brown sugar. The creamed spinach wasn't so bad, but we will probaby avoid it in the future
