today is my Mama's birthday
she is one of my very favorite people
we have a good time together
while she visited us last week in Dallas we took every opportunity to celebrate
beginning at Harvest High Tea at the Dallas Arboretum
our favorite tea was peach cinnamon hibiscus
followed by butternut squash soup with bruschetta
our next courses included tea sandwiches & desserts
we did not know we could be so full with such dainty portions!
a tour of the gardens was next on the agenda
back at the ranch
our birthday dinner for Mom included
gnocchi with creamy tomato sauce, asian pears & manchego & J's secret bread recipe
watch out, Dallas Arboretum!
p.s. we are still enjoying your birthday flowers!
we love you,
m & j
