Hi everyone! I must apologize for the lack of posts. We have been really busy! With that said, my Mom is in town for the holidays! So I haven’t done much cooking! LOL
My Mom is visiting from San Diego, CA where she is the Food Service Director for the YMCA. She cooks for hundreds of people on a daily basis and is an excellent chef. Since she’s been here she has been whipping up tasty meals for the family! The kids really enjoy her cooking. She and the kids have been doing Christmas cookies. She even made some for Nya’s class to decorate. I’ll have to feature those on another post. There is so much food in this house, I haven’t had time to snap shots of everything.
Tonight we had a nice big dinner! My Mom started preparing food yesterday! She cooked everything by herself. All that hard work paid off, because the meal was soooo good! I’ll give a quick break down of each dish so you can see what was on the menu.
Then the labor of love! She had to prepare these the night before. She did Pork, Cheese, and Fruit Tamales. These were soooooo good! Just thinking about them, makes me want some more! lol Topped with Mrs. Renfros green salsa, these were excellent.
We also had Hawaiian Sweet bread, Asparagus, and a Green Salad. This was a great meal! We ate it up. Hopefully I can feature one more dish before she leaves. I’ll have to get the recipes too. It’s always nice to get a break from cooking once in a while. Especially to enjoy some good eats!
