Mom's Birthday Dinner

Just sitting around...snapping beans :)
and reading the Savannah coffee table books :) Aahh....

Sunday night we decided to do a special birthday dinner for Mom.  Kristen and Kelli picked a menu from Southern Living to make and I was responsible for dessert.
We had a bread & cheese (and olives and almonds) plate as a starter
Watching these two collaborate was half of our evening entertainment.  Kristen was trying desperately to keep Kelli straight :) And Kelli is just always sure it will work out!  :)
Dinner was delicious!  Marinated pork medallions, sweet potato and carrot puree, and green beans with caramelized onions!

The downside of not being in your own kitchen is that you have to make due with what they have stocked in their kitchen.  Like our serving spoon?  :)
That evening we gathered in Mom's room to watch the premier of "Worst Cooks in America!"

I made a turtle cheesecake for dessert :)
Yes.  It was as delicious as it looks.  Better really!

The perfect ending to an absolutely super fun day!
