Warm Spinach Balls with dipping sauce

Garlic spinach balls with Cucumber Mint Yogurt Dip

Bean and Barley Salad with lemon caper dressing

so very 
Forbidden City Chicken

Spanish rice, made with brown rice and roasted peppers

Not an attractive picture, this is the Halibut, before baking. Apparently I did not get a shot after baking. Such is a busy kitchen.

I did not make the Lime and Dijon Chicken thighs. 

Nutella Bread Pudding

Gingerbread Pudding Cake, with pears.
This is not pretty, but this bakes up to become the pudding on the bottom. You are looking at butter, brown sugar and hot water. 

Yum, served with vanilla ice cream

And now for a little fun.
Dancing raisins, an experiment.
 I part Granddaughter, I part Grandpa, and some kitchen supplies: water, baking soda, vinegar, and 5 raisins. 

So when is it going to work, PaPa?

One of the raisins did "dance" to the top of the water. But it was a bit anti-climatic considering she had to wait until after dinner to try the experiment.

Another great family dinner, good by January 2010. As always thanks for taking a moment to stop and say hello, drop me a line, I love having visitors.
