Project 365: Day 37

Mother's Day Dinner

It is hard to believe that in the 7 years that Paul and I have been together, our moms have only met each other once. We sought to celebrate the day and to give them a chance to spend some time together by having them over for a mother's day dinner. I think we all enjoyed the evening and, hopefully, the food. We made Middle Eastern Chickpeas and Spinach over Orzo and Mustard Carrots (both recipes from Moosewood Restaurant Low-Fat Favorites) and for dessert a Strawberry Mascarpone Tart with Port Glaze. Despite a little issue with our oven (it is evil and seeks to burn everything) that resulted in some burnt edges on the tart crust that I needed to cut away, the meal went well. I think it will likely be the last dinner party we host in this apartment. I am already looking forward to all of the goodies I will be able to make with a fully functioning kitchen that has counter tops and an oven that cooks at the temperature it is set on. And, hopefully, these two special ladies will come over to our new place for dinner.

BONUS! Mother's Day Bouquets, because Moms like flowers.
