Mother's Day Re-Cap

Yes, I know Mother's Day was 7 days ago and I am extremely slow in getting these photos up, but here we go.  Unfortunately I only have pictures of the food and absolutely zero pictures of people!  Maybe Mom or my sister will send me a few and I can add them.

My sister came in to town from Austin to celebrate Mother's Day weekend.  We had a simple Sunday enjoying each other's company and cooking a delicious meal.  

We started things off with some delicious and sparkly Sangria...

It was a huge hit with everyone
The perfect springtime drink!

The main course consisted of Roast Beef Tenderloin, Oven Roasted Rosemary & Parmesan Potatoes, and Almond Garlic Green Beans.

The beef tenderloin was seasoned with salt, pepper, sugar and bacon grease... how delicious! 
Thank you, PW.

We ate and laughed and ate and laughed and ate some more.

We can put away some serious food.

Finally it was time for dessert.  Creme Brulee - one of my all-time favoites. 

We obviously had not perfected our "torching technique". 

We prepared and ate some wonderful food, but the best part was all of the laughs we shared.   

Great day and I look forward to celebrating many more!

Your blogs amaze me...mostly because I couldn't do these things in a million years! Question though: Did you make your own sangria?? If so, I need the recipe!!

Your torching technique is just fine :) so far as I can see, you make have just had a heavy hand when sprinkling the sugar. The brulee looks very even except where the sugar pooled, which usually means you've got the motions right, but a little too much sweet stuff.
