I don't know what it is about the film, Ratatouille, but my twin daughters are mesmerized by it. Under normal circumstances, they won't sit still for two minutes. If Elmo happens to flash across the TV, they might pause for a second to point at the screen and shout, "Melmo!" before running off to break something, but put on Ratatouille and they'll sit down for a good 20 minutes to watch.

Dinner last night: lasagna, cheesy breadsticks, steamed carrots
