I'm a pretty lucky gal. My mom is a professional chef--check out her blog adventures from her culinary school--so when I go the 'rents house for special dinners, they are truly an incredible dining experience and worth the 1 hr. commute on the smelly CalTrain down the peninsula after a long day in the office.
Monday was my sister Sara's b-day, and the menu was:
Ahi Tartare Salad with Fried Won Ton Chips
Grilled Salmon with Brown Rice and Sauteed Veggies
Carrot Cake AND Chocolate Cake (one from each of the grandmas)
It was an amazing feast and wonderful company.
How awesome is the presentation?
Nice work mamacita!
My iphone died before the soup and grilled salmon came out, but here's "The Kid's Table" Dad manning the grill, on right, in funny apron in the back of this shot:
