  3. Okay super dumb questions, what is Neufchatel cheese and what does it taste like? Your salad sound great, but like I said I don't think I've ever had that kind of cheese.

  5. Okay, I managed to make and take pictures of tonight's dinner so we're up and ready to add! I see you've got Mr. Linky up now, which I figured seeing how I couldn't load your blog:( Had to use Brad's Modzilla. Oh well, maybe they'll fix it eventually other people have to be noticing a problem too! Now at least I think it's definitely Mr. Linky giving me headaches over at ABC.

    PS: Did you see we have a new addition to the Picnic, can we add more?
