Finishing this dish with lime zest and juice brightens its rich flavors.

Little Hares
Friday we went down to my grandparents for lunch and to give them their gifts.  My grandfather has not being doing well but he was in a wonderful mood and was able to come down to the apartment to see the kids.  Afterwards we took them sledding.  Jeff took them down the hill and I took video.  I could probably go sledding if I was careful but that hill was packed and I almost got run over just standing there.  The kids loved it and took the last run by themselves with Jeff running behind.  We were going to take the tree down on Saturday but we got a call for a showing Sat afternoon.  And since it is shedding like mad we didn't want to cope with the mess under a deadline.  We cleaned up all the wrapping paper and new toys and vacuumed before taking the kids to the movies to get out of the way.  We haven't heard anything more since the showing beyond the usual response of they liked it.  The kids got the new moon sand out when we got back.  I swear I keep finding it all over.  It appears magically.  Good thing it is easy to cleanup.  Isabelle also got out her new loom and she and Jeff made a pot holder.  That will take you back.  We have Keegan's fish tank all setup and we are hoping to go get fish this afternoon.  Right now the kids and Jeff are out snowshoeing.  The kids didn't know what they were when they unwrapped them and we tried to explain how you can walk on top of the snow.  Blue ones for Isabelle and orange ones for Keegan.  They get it now and are halfway across the field.  I love to snowshoe but I couldn't resist the chance to catchup on blogging and just enjoy the quiet. :)
