Mother's Day Dinner

I had my mother, her husband and my favorite aunt over for dinner tonight. They loved dinner and it was a pretty easy fix.
Chicken and leek casserole over red rice, asparagus tossed in lemon butter, cornmuffins with orange butter and for dessert blueberry and mango shortcakes with lemon and thyme biscuits. Couldn't have done it WO DH's help cleaning the house.

I cooked my mother and myself, Shrimp with Cocktail sauce (for my mother), Porter House Steak, Saluted Mushrooms, Baked Potato and a Mexican Veggie side dish. Ice cream was for dessert, but we were too full to eat any.

I made Chinese. Eggrolls and cream cheese puffs, wanton soup, sweet and sour chicken ( La choy recipe, supper easy) and fried rice. Though everybody loved it it really was a diner for my son more than anybody else. In a few weeks he leaves for camp and that in the atumn he is going away for school. I miss him already.

My beloved made country-fried steak, personally pounded out of round steak and breaded by him, homemade gravy, mashed potatoes and peas. (I gotta have peas with my mashed taties!)
My daughter brought me a double-chocolate pie for dessert. Yum Yum!
