Dan and I love to cook, almost as much as we love to eat! Since Dan's been back on day shift, we have been able to do more cooking together, like we once did early in our relationship. It has been so much fun! On Sunday, Dan and I roasted a turkey we had purchased during last Thanksgiving. It sounded delicious and we figured we could use the leftovers for meals during the week, taking some pressure off of me to cook. We prepared mashed potatoes, carrots, stuffing, gravy and a sixteen pound turkey. It was delicious. Even Aveline loved the fixings.
Now that a few days have passed, I can tell you that I may not be ready to have turkey again in any form until Aveline is thirty. We have eaten turkey fajitas, turkey salad, turkey sandwiches, turkey and noodles and my favorite, General Tso's Turkey. While it has been tasty, I am ready for some beef.

On a side note, Dan and I noticed yesterday that we have both been so tired and sluggish. Looking back at what we have eaten lately, we are probably overdosing on tryptophan.

Spoons also work well as teethers!
