Mother's Dinner Party

It is often a challenge to find creative gifts for our parents so Sister Ex and I offered our entertaining services. We helped our Mother put together a dinner party and what fun it was to plan and execute.

A rough outline of our menu:

The beginnings of our place cards with the supplies and classes found here.

Cute bowls for the Cheddar Granny Smith Apple Soup

 Prosciutto-Wrapped Grilled Shrimp with a Kalamata Aioli
 Herbed Goat Cheese Endive Boats with Slivered Beets and Snipped Chives
 Pear and Gorgonzola Bruschetta
 The kitchen staff enjoyed wine from our favorite Washington Spa- Cave B.

 Mother took some time away from the guests to teach Sister Ex and I how to prepare the Risotto.
The ingredients were premeasured just like a cooking show.
