Dinner No. 54: Sunday, May 8, 2016: Happy Mother’s Day!
May 9th, 2016 by Katekoster

Today we were very busy.  We started out by giving Mom breakfast in bed (first we let her go for a run, but then we made her get back in bed).  We made her a yogurt and berry parfait, a banana berry smoothie and included walnut-raspberry rugelach that we had bought at the Farmer’s Market yesterday.  She loved it.  We also got her lilacs, tulips, herb plants and a blue hydrangea plant so she was pretty happy.

Then we came up with our menu for dinner: kale/brussel sprout salad (Mom’s favorite) with filet mignon and mashed potatoes (our favorite) with berries and  home-made oatmeal chocolate chip cookies for dessert.  We made the cookies in the afternoon so we wouldn’t have to worry about dessert during dinner. And then, after Max’s soccer game and walking our dog, we started on dinner. The salad is pretty easy–just a lot of chopping.  And for the filet mignon, half we just put salt and pepper on and half we put a Texas Spice Rub (salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder and paprika– you can also add ancho chile powder but we didn’t have any.  We grilled the steaks on the stove top and then finished them in the oven.

Here are the cookies:

We’ll add more stuff tomorrow but Mom says it’s time for bed now (and since it’s MOTHER’S DAY we are listening to her for a change:)
