Betty in a Box

After a week of working solo at the clinic, and Lincoln staying with a new sitter, and Jeen cooking an awesome dinner for our "adopted" Chinese students on Friday night, and moving more than a ton (literally) of snow over the past week, Jenn and I feel like this was a complete week. The capper is a big, fantastic dinner

Saturday's Dinner:
Salmon in Lemon Brodetto with Pea Puree
tonight with our small group from church.

On Friday night it was a Beef Short-Rib dish with a Malbec sauce and a Bananas Foster Upside Down cake (Jenn would be able to describe all of these much better, but you get the idea). Tonight we'll be having a Pork Roast with a homemade bread that Jenn was working on yesterday (it smelled wonderful!), and our friends are bringing salads and sides and things like that. This evening we'll be using for the first time our dining room furniture and the accessories that go with our Winter Frost dishes that Grandma Gates and Mom gave to Jenn this past Christmas. We're excited to host our first dinner party in our new house!

The fun continues at the Gates Home. Lincoln hasn't tired of playing with his boxes. This time Betty got in on the action.
