What I Made for Dinner: January 16, 2010

Roasted shrimp and pasta with roasted tomato sauce.

My in-laws joined us for a little impromptu party.  It was very pleasant, ending with a little vignette that perfectly illustrates Eli's place in the family:

After dinner, the boys and their grandfather sat around the table eating ice cream and Girl Scout cookies.  Grandpa sat down next to Eli, who had a cookie in one hand and a bowl of ice cream with sprinkles in front of him.  Eli looked over at Grandpa, who had a different kind of cookie, and said very sweetly, "I would like that kind!"  Then he took it--Yoink!  And everyone laughed merrily, to a person:  his single-cookied brothers, his dispossessed grandpa, everyone.  Look at the cute cute toddler!  He stole from his grandfather!  He is double-fisting cookies!

That kid has us completely wrapped around his finger.  He could get away with a lot more, and I think it's only a matter of time until he figures it out.
