Mother’s Day – In action!


So, the menu was changed a little bit due to unavailability of some things at my local grocery.
Set up
Ready to serve



Italian bread with dill-garlic dipping oil
 

Cucumber Cups with Vegetable Dip
 

Creamy Italian White Bean Soup with Beef and Spinach
 

Beets, Oranges and Mozzarella over Field Greens with Balsamic Vinegar



Beef Sliders with Cheddar and Garlic-Avocado Mayonaise served with Fried Potato “Chips”
 

Cake Pops – Cream Cheese Pound Cake in a Candy Coating




Some chose seconds on soup, but most of the reviews were “I’m too full” and “that was an adventure!” Overall, a great success!  A lot of work, but very yummy!
