Family Dinner

We here in the Candy Cane Forest try to have dinner together as a family as often as possible.  During the week it's tough, but we can usually manage on the weekends.  Princess Lolly has been asking for steak for a while.  We don't eat a ton of red meat and the whole beef recall has me a little spooked.   But we decided to throw caution to the wind and grill a marinated tri tip.   Yum.  I think Lolly ate most of it.   She kept asking for more and finally we cut her off.  Then she ate an entire basket of strawberries.  She clearly shares her mother's appreciation of good food.  

She and Princess Frostine helped me make the side dishes which rounded out a very nice meal.

The potatoes were so tasty and the brussels sprouts were simple and delicious.  It was a nice little family dinner despite Gloppy's mini tantrum because we wouldn't give him Diet Pepsi with his dinner and we made the mistake of putting a brussels sprout on his plate.  He was fine after we got him a new plate that had never touched any green food.
