Marissa and Hank brought the boys for New Years Day dinner. It seems I need to feel family around me while I grieve the loss of Uncle Johnny. We had a very scrumptious dinner. Marissa had recently told me every New Year's Day was spoiled by my mom's dinner which was a pork roast cooked in saurkraut. Again, poor Marissa.
So altho I had to serve saurkraut because it's tradition even tho I don't care for it much either but Robert and Hank love it. I used Rita Kistner's German recipe which included smoked sausage and cooked in a slow cooker for hours. I also made a pork roast that was encrusted with seasoned panko bread crumbs. Good potatoes and applesauce and rolls and everything else.
The fun moment? getting to put Simon in a high chair for the first time. I do think he enjoys being up high and having a tray to pound on. Putting the little spoon in his mouth didn't seem to be pleasurable but here is that cute little boy. I could eat him up. He always smiles....ALWAYS.
