Fantastic Mother's Day!
Speaking of which, we had one of the best meals of our lives there last night! Their son & daughter-in-law, N&C, made an amazing gourmet dinner. First course was handmade, fresh pasta, with a cream sauce and spicy shrimp/crab. The main course was filet mignon, with a peppercorn sauce, cumin carrots, & broccoli rabe. Just amazing... Of course we had some awesome Laetitia sparkling, & an array of fantastic wines. I made creme brulees for dessert, with a macerated blackberry/strawberry sauce on the side. I need to learn a new dessert, as I'm becoming a 'one-trick pony.' However, the brulees were yummy...
Even though I'm working today, I am having a great day multi-tasking in the real estate office, printing out listing brochures while I update this blog. I'll have garden & dinner photos tomorrow!
