Dinner with the Parents


When we were little, my sisters and I would each get a “date” with one of our parents – we would spend the day painting pottery, go bowling, or grab a bite to eat.  It was nice to have one-on-one time and in a family of 5, the undivided attention didn’t hurt either.

As I’ve gotten older, I really have grown to appreciate the time with my parents, so when Jeremy had a business dinner, I thought it the perfect night to have my parents over for dinner.

My mom is gluten-intolerant, so I put together a gluten-free meal that (hopefully) even my dad would like.

Lemongrass Beef

Lemongrass Beef Skewer 035

*I didn’t have skewers on hand, so I just made thinly sliced pieces 1-2 inches long and cooked them in a pan for 2 minutes on each side. 


Rice Noodles with Scallions and Herbs

Rice Noodles 010


Asian Cucumber Salad 



Cucumber Mint Cocktail – Our Fun Drink Friday cocktail from last week!
