I am not sure why but the food always tastes better at my sister's house. Possible a blend of her cooking and the influences of my mom and her husband's mom, who is my 2nd favorite cook ever. Everything tastes so fresh.
Okay we started with homemade hummus and chips, Caprese Salad and Stuffed Figs. The figs were from her yard, the plant came from my dad's yard. They were stuffed with goat cheese and wrapped in prosciutto. Need I say anymore?
Next we had homemade pasta with homemade pesto. Amazing because it was not overly garlicky!
Then we had pork loin and green bean salad from my dad's garden and I think she called them black eyed peas but oh wow they were good. Honestly the peas would have been enough for me.
For dessert she made Cherry Confetti Cake. It was my mom's recipe which I will be getting from her very soon.
We tasted a lot of different wines. And I can't decide which I liked best. It was a delicious meal with good friends and family.
