Soren's First Saturday Night Dinner

After a couple of weeks off, Saturday Night Dinners resumed at Max's place last night. Demetri, ML and I sat in the living room staring at the sleeping baby in his stroller, while Tom & Max made:


Salt-baked fish (a European sea bass called Branzino)


(ML was very excited)


Israeli couscous with raisins and onions

and


Sauteed squash with onions, pepper & lemon


Dessert was a Meringue Fruit Torte cake from Porto's Bakery.

The little lad's timing was surprisingly good; he slept in his stroller from the time we got there, waking up to be fed and changed only moments after I had eaten my last bite of cake. He successfully charmed all in attendance, with the possible exception of Max's cat, Spork, who was certainly intrigued but not necessarily charmed.

As always, a fine time was had by all. :)

He's adorable. I assume that the baby's name is Soren?

Carrie - The elder Johnson has much more practice in these matters ;)

Amy - Yeah, that ML is a cutie.

MA - Indeed it is. Soren Luther.

Um... Just so you know... In case you're holding back... no need. We are starving for Soren information at all times. We'd really love a little Soren webcam, but that's probably too much to ask for. Okay, I'll go back to hitting refresh now.
