Menu Monday 1/23

January 23, 2012

Happy Monday!

I wanted to let you know that you can now "like" Fat Little Leg on facebook!  All of my blog posts should then show up in your feed... or at least that's the idea.  Stick with me while I figure all of this out over the next few weeks.

Anyways... on to the task at hand.  What's for dinner this week!

We've passed the middle point of January, and in my mind that means hopefully only a couple more months left of winter.  Yes... sometimes I wonder why I live in Minnesota.  I am not a lover of winter that's for sure.  Looks like we'll have a little freezing rain covered with an inch or so of snow this morning.  FUN!  Has me thinking comfort food, and the Skinny Salisbury Steak with mashed potatoes below is perfect comfort food!  2 thumbs up on that one from my family!

Oh, and I almost forgot... look who's sitting in her new high chair, joining us at the table now

Peanut in her new high chair!
Nope... she's not "eating" anything yet, for now she's just practicing sitting, and we are practicing getting 2 hands back to eat with!
