two mom's in the house.

Danny and I hosted Mother's Day dinner for his mom and sister. It was a big one for the family - Tricia's first as a mom and the first with three generations of Bockting girls. It was a special day.

Everyone came over late Saturday afternoon and little Makaela was the star of the show. She's really filling out!

D and I got ambitious and decided to put out a full spread. Appetizers, homemade sangria (recipe here) and this new recipe for the main course - homemade lemon ricotta ravioli with proscuitto and asparagus. We had a blast preparing everything. The ravioli was super zesty but everyone seemed to like it. Dessert was a must, so we served homemade Ghiradelli browines with fresh strawberries and french vanilla ice cream. Yum.

Being away from home can be hard on these holidays. I'm so grateful to have a such a wonderful family here.
