Mom's Visit

Most of you know that my mom had a tumor removed earlier this summer and had several surgeries. She has been recovering well, and this weekend she decided to brave a trip to Nashville (David and I have crazy schedules this fall, so she decided to come to us). Since she hasn't eaten since before her first surgery on June 17, she has had plenty of time to think about food and so she decided to prepare us gourmet meals ALL WEEKEND! It was great. Here was our menu. And since I never remember to take pictures, you will have to settle for the yummy BH&G's pics.

Saturday Night:
Roasted Beet and Clementine Salad with homemade Spicy Orange Vinaigrette

Sweet Potato and Hominy Stew made with barbecued chicken

Creamy Pumpkin and Rice Pudding topped with Apples, Cranberries, and Walnuts

And for Sunday she made us fresh, healthy Sirloin Burgers with a kick

We had a great time. Thanks Mom!

Be looking for upcoming posts of my favorite Nashville deals and places and my fav Fall cooking ingredients... Also, if you are lucky, I will actually post pictures of me and David :)
