a post about eating

sawyer and i

got rob a grill
for father's day.
so he has been
grilling us a lot
of dinners lately.
it's pretty great,
especially for me.
he made us
beer-can chicken
with corn on the cob
and asparagus.
and it
you should come over
and let him make
it for you, too.

sawyer has started
eating rice cereal.
i can't believe
he's big enough
for that,
but the first time
we tried it,
he pretty much
grabbed the spoon
out of my hand,
and started feeding
and he had a fit
when it was over.
he loves it.

i made lettuce wraps
and they were so so good
and so easy,
i wanted to share them with you.

8 ounces of minced chicken mix
( which is a mix of mushrooms, water chestnuts, & minced chicken )
1 tablespoon of wok oil
1/2 teaspoon of minced garlic
2 tablespoons of diced green scallions
2 ounces of our minced chicken sauce (see below)
1 teaspoon of sesame

Minced Chicken Sauce:
1/4 cup of mushroom soy sauce

It's a good thing I just finished supper before I read this post or I'd be pigging out. What yummy sounding fod Rob is making on the grill. thanks for the recipe -- I will give it a try.

Love the photo's of Sawyer with rice cereal on his mouth -- so cute. Glad he's apparently not going to be a picky eater. YAY!!!

Oo... that food looks good.

And that Sawyer, I think he could win a 'cutest baby contest' hands down.
