what's for dinner?

Dinner is for 10 these days in our house -- which is a big number for us! It's funny in that we make up 1/2 that number, but absorbing 5 additional adults into the mix has proved a little challenging.

We've found that our outside table is the biggest, so we eat outside and the boys eat at a small picnic table. I don't think we've quite got the amounts of food down, however, as we haven't had any leftovers, and I usually end up with one thing on my plate to make sure there's enough of everything else to go around. Nobody really notices, since I'm so busy making sure the kids get fed, etc . . . and I don't mind eating a pb&j sandwich after the kitchen is cleaned up!

Tonight my DH is cooking steaks over a wood fire and potatoes baked on the grill. I'll throw together peas with a mint dressing and I'm hoping to make this yummy cranberry pie if I can get the walnuts in the next little while. My mom has rolls to add to the meal, and I think salad as well. It's been fun having all of the family in town at once, and we'll be sad to see them go next weekend.
