Mother’s Day Success

038

So, I cooked for my mother on mother’s day as I had mentioned. Let me just say, I was rather pleased with the results. See all of my pictures within. Although, I will not lie and say that it was smooth sailing. I encountered a few glitches along the way–with the first one being changing panna cotta recipes and my panna cotta not setting properly. I had to change plans the morning of mother’s day and make a deliciously creamy baked custard instead. My second glitch was when the shrimp, in my shrimp appetizer supreme took a little longer than it should to cook. I had planned for dinner to start at 6. Well, it started at 6:10. Not bad, right? The dinner did manage to go over smoothly after that. I will say my mother is pleased. And people who say the images think that I should open up my own catering business. I just might do that.

My mother likes her lamb medium-well. I like it well done and done in sea salt and black pepper.

Cooking lamb is a tricky process–especially the rack of lamb part.

This was delicious. You can never have to much shrimp (2 pounds baby–right here!!)

Do you have dreams of creamy bliss the way I do? Then baked custard is certainly for you.
