[IP] Kids are amazing!!!
Mimi and I take a 'kid' out to dinner once a month at a nice place.
With 5 kids, there are 10 'special' nights a year just for them alone
with mom and dad. Last night was Lily's birthday month dinner.
We went to the San Benito house in Half Moon Bay and had a great
dinner. The entrees were:
Duck in pear and ginger sauce, with wild rice and a mixed vegetable
Seafood sausage (crab, scallops, etc...) on a bed of grilled polenta
with caramelized onions and.....
Gourmet pizza of grilled eggplant, fresh cherry tomatoes and goat
------------yum!, we shared all of that.
For dessert, we had expresso coffee creme, a very rich pudding topped
with blueberries, wild strawberries and whip cream

and she was 130 and at 2:30 am she was 150. Hmmm..... guess I better
leave the poor kid alone and let her sleep. This morning (morning is
about 10:00 for Lily in the summer) she was fine, of course, and I
can't believe she actually got away with that!!
Aren't kids great!?
