Mimmy's Birthday Dinner

Yesterday was the first weekend after my mom's birthday, so I had my parents and Kyle's parents up for dinner to celebrate. We made brandy chicken in a paprika cream sauce, bacon-wrapped scallops, wild mushroom and asparagus risotto, sour dough garlic bread, and salad with lemon vinaigrette. I also attempted a spiced souffle, but it ended up a spiced cake, boo. Oh well, it tasted good. While I was cooking, Kyle and the grand parents entertained Audrey.

Kyle prepares the Christmas lights for the front of the house, and Audrey helps

Audrey handles quality control

Repositioning for better leverage

After Grammy, Gramps, Mimmy-the-birthday-girl, and Pappy arrived, dinner was served! For once, dinner was actually served when I said it would be (I'm always late)! Audrey really enjoyed her risotto...

Kyle lit the candles... and part of a gift...

Dishing up!

Audrey's dessert: the spoon used to serve fresh whipped cream

Post-dinner entertainment: Gramps shoulder ride!
