I made chewy granola bars while I was waiting on the first rise of the cinnamon rolls:

For lunch I taught Pug how to make my pasta salad, which was utterly consumed. He did an excellent job. :) Thanks, Pug!
We had dinner with the Stormy family. They'd been trying to get us out to their new house for practically a month and we finally managed to get our schedules lined up to make it happen. Purple and Pon ran around like, well, the crazy toddlers they are in the yard until the rain and lightning chased them inside where they continued to run around and have an absolute blast. They literally bounced off the walls for a bit too. Pug and Viking played some game on the XBox and chased the kids while Tink and I talked and worked on dinner. Tink made us two great recipes from the new Weight Watchers cookbook, meaty lasagna and a cilantro/lime oven roasted corn. Both were tasty, and I may start making corn that way too!
We took toffee crunch cookies (sans chocolate chips- I didn't have any, remember) and honey ginger lemonade. I don't have any pictures of those because the lemonade is gone and the pretty cookies were taken to the Stormy's and the ones I kept are a crumbly mess. I both crowded the pan and didn't let them cool enough before trying to move them for the first batch. The second was a similar if less crowded mess. The only change I made to the lemonade was to use a Tbls powdered ginger in place of the freshly grated (again, not a standard grocery item for me). It was delicious, but may be a bit intense, so feel free to knock it down to 1/2 Tbls if you try the recipe and need to substitute like I did.
