Surprise!

10/11/11
On Friday night my sister and I threw a surprise party for my mom’s 50th birthday! It was fun and we had fun doing it. I wish I could blog about all the other fun things I’ve been doing but there really is no time! Maybe someday…but who really wants to see my life anyways??!
Here’s what was on the menu:
Appetizers…3 different kinds of hummus, almond and cranberry chicken salad, both served on melba toast, and mozzarella sticks (what do you expect with men at the party? ha)
Main Dish…Caesar salad, veggie lasagna, sausage and mushroom lasagna, ground beef lasagna, and garlic bread. We made the noodles for the lasagna. This was as homemade as you can get! The veggie lasagna had lots of different vegetables in it also. Fantastic!
Dessert….I made vanilla cupcakes with buttercream frosting and my sister made a butter pecan cake. We had some french vanilla ice cream too. yum!
I took some pics of part of the noodle making process. We made spinach noodles. Man, my sis can cook! Wonder where we got it from????? 😉

The dough started in a ball (kneaded for 10 minutes) and this is when she started rolling it out.

Here is it getting bigger…

Now she is cutting the sheets for the lasagna. This thing was almost as big as my island!


Here’s a pic with my parents…we are being goofy 🙂 It was a success and my mom loved it! Happy 50th Mom!
