Mom's Birthday Party

We celebrated my Mom's birthday.  I made her a tea brunch and the girls and I celebrated with Mom and her twin sister via skype while she (my aunt) was also hosting a tea party in Georgia.  Then a couple of days later (due to crazy schedules) we had an amazing and healthy birthday dinner.  Here were the results:

For the tea we had crepes with cream and strawberries and lemon scones with an assortment of teas.

We're about to sit and enjoy the tea.  The girls don't look too happy because they have to wait until we're all ready - it took a while.


For Mom's Dinner we had several appetizers.  The first was Broiled Scallops with Sweet Lime Sauce 


Then we had prosciutto wrapped pears that Aubrey loved!  Who knew a 4 yr. old would like that?


Along with artichokes with happy hollandaise sauce  


Then the entree was Chicken Pomodoro which was absolutely amazing!!!

And for dessert, we had chocolate souffle' with raspberries 


A wonderful, fanciful, healthy feast!!!


  1. YUM! I can't wait to try that! It all looks amazing! I wish you could come cook for me. Tell you what, when I'm rich, you can come be my personal chef. What do you think?

  2. Sure, but you can't tell me what to do. You can only tell me how wonderful everything is and pay me. If I don't want to cook on any given night you will have to be happy about it. How do those terms sound?
