Mother’s Day and Birthday

May 22, 2010

For mother’s day, I invited my grandmother over for dinner. Her birthday was also on Tuesday so it was a joint celebration. I took some pictures on my dad’s cellphone, and I’ll update this when I get them back!

Anyways, I made a Sweet Lemon-Mint Pear Salad and the dressing was divine. It was so simple to make, and the pears added such a lovely texture to the salad. I forgot to put the mint into the salad, but it was still really good. The main course was an Apricot-Lemon Chicken (which pairs off with the sweet lemon-mint pear salad) and we ended up cooking it  for a bit more than the recipe called for because our chicken was so thick. The sauce was really good and just added a different element to the chicken. For dessert, I made a Blackberry Cobbler which was SO good. I’ve never had a cobbler before (let alone made one) and so it was just really fresh and delicious. The five of us ended up eating the entire dish for dessert. The one thing I found about the dessert was that the top didn’t brown so we broiled it for a few minutes and the top got nice and brown.

The next day was my dad’s birthday so I ended up making him some brownies (just a box mix, but the best box mix EVER [Ghiradelli box mix]). I also ended up making him Turkish mushroom cookies which were really fun to make, and incredibly simple!

I don’t have pictures of any of this stuff right now, so hopefully the links will suffice for everyone!
