I wondered about T-ball too for Steven's age. Impressive!

Sounds like a great game!

I didn't feel like actually cooking, so I whipped up a salad with greens, tomato, cucumber, capers, olives, since I barely had any capers left, a can of albacore tuna, a squeeze of lemon and the last of my homemade balsamic vinaigrette.
It's a good thing the Sproutlets will eat almost anything or I'd be in trouble on lazy days! The 2-year-old was disappointed that there weren't many capers though. That little girl has a song about how much she loves them!

One of the coaches stands about half way between home plate and the pitcher's mound and pitches. There are about 10 kids on each team and they bat around in turn according to their uniform number then the other side comes up.

I made linguini Alfredo and a salad. The salad and vinaigrette were based on/inspired by this recipe Pomegranate Vinegar. I used a pomegranate balsamic vinegar in the vinaigrette. The salad was pretty much the same as Janet's second salad, but I used pecans instead of sesame seeds. It was wonderful. Next time I will add the crumbled blue cheese. It would go wonderfully well with this salad. The linguini Alfredo was pretty good too. We had it with a Spanish red wine, Toro Loco.

Lots of good looking dinner here - sure am glad my tummy's full.

Andy: Steven's helmet is bigger than he is! Glad you had fun AND nice weather.

Cheryl: My dinner was even easier than yours - our favorite Irish pub did the cooking tonight. Our BIL went with us since his wife (Himself's sister) is in FL doggy sitting. The guys each had Fish & Chips. I had bangers and mash. I ate all the veggies (peas) but brought home half the sausages and potatoes. We each started off with a mug of clam chowder, which this place makes only on Fridays, and we each enjoyed a beer with our dinners. I had a Guinness, my goodness!
