MOTHERS DAY DINNER AT HOME


MOTHERS DAY DINNER
AT HOME 

We rarely venture out for meals on Valentines or Mothers Day.  Just not into the large crowds.  I asked my wife what she wanted for her Mothers Day dinner and she requested the Pappardelle Pasta with Mushrooms that we enjoyed a few weeks ago.  We invited her mother to join us and had a wonderful dinner at home.  I served Boschetto Al Tartufo Cheese appetizer to start.  This is absolutely one of my favorite appetizers.  We discovered the cheese and preparation at Pearl Nightclub in Ala Moana Center.  Simply toast some bread with a garlic/butter spread.  Coat the bread with Raspberry or Strawberry Preserves and top with a slice of cheese.  One bite will put you in cheese heaven. Guaranteed!  My wife really likes the Shrimp Tempura from Costco.  Simply bake the shrimp in the oven for a few minutes and you have a really good appetizer complete with dipping sauce that is included in the box.  Our salad included bacon, avocado and crumbled Blue Cheese.  The Pappardelle Pasta with fresh local mushrooms was again delicious.  You can find the recipe on this blog.  To kick up the dinner we enjoyed some large Alaskan King Crab Legs that we picked up at Costco.  These huge legs are filled with the sweetest crab it town.  No need for butter.  Simply steam and serve.  Finished the evening with a chocolate lava cake that was filled with a chocolate sauce in the middle.  The chocolate oozed out when you cut into it.  Very thankful for my Mom, my wife, my Dad's wife Heidi and my Mother in Law.  Where would anyone of us be without a Mom.  I love them all!
