This past weekend the three sisters (and a boyfriend) traveled from North Carolina's three largest cities to the country cottage that we like to call home to celebrate our dear Mother's birthday.
We decided to try something new for my Mom's birthday dinner: divvy up the meal. I had appetizer and dessert. Gin & Jeff had the main course. Lu, the salad. My Dad, the naan bread- his specialty. It worked perfectly. I used an appetizer recipe from Al, and it was quite tasty. A fig spread on top of toasted cheese bread with apple and slices of Pecorino Romano cheese. Yum. Holler if you want the recipe.
We had cake, presents and games afterwards.
