Clearly I need to stop cooking for a crowd. My crowd isn't having it. But looking on the bright side, I enjoyed a hot meal without (too many) interruptions. And Joe is going to love all the leftovers. Seriously, he will! Tator tot casserole is one of his favorites. He's a Minnesota boy through and through.
Tonight we are going to meet Joe at the hospital cafeteria. Before dinner I promised treats (at the hospital) to anyone who finished their meal. I have just a little more milk to go and then the cafeteria ice cream and cookies are mine! ALL MINE!

Now I know why my dinner was so peaceful. Beauty shop was in full swing in the kids' room.
