Hi, there! I just got back from enjoying a wonderful dinner with my mom and sister atย my mom’s new home!! ๐Ÿ˜€

I snapped a couple of photos of her new place, but I’ll give you the full tour once my mom is completely settled. Here’s the dining room and part of the living room, which I am standing in as I take the photo.

The reason for our get-together tonight was, of course, to see my mom’s new home, but also to celebrate my sister’s birthday. She’s 29 now! What an old lady! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Dinner

The star of our dinner this evening was cheese! But, not just any cheese: stinky Raclette cheese!! When it comes to cheese, my thinking is the stinker, the better! :mrgreen:

With our cheese, we had sliced French bread.

As well as steamed broccoli and red potatoes.

We had fun catching up and cooking dinner together in my mom’s new kitchen. It has so much more counter space than her old one! She’s happy!

Once the potatoes and broccoli finished cooking, it was time for the cheese!

And, if cheesy goodness wasn’t enough, we also enjoyed Caramel Turtle Cake for dessert.

  1. Good work on your speed workout!! You are super fast!

    I love cheese, but I am not so much of a fan of smelly cheeses. Though I do love flavorful cheeses like feta and parmesan. Cheese is one of the main reasons why I could never be vegan ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I LOVE cheese! The other day for lunch, I treated myself to Old World Portuguese Cheese and french bread. I can’t do that very often but it sure was nice to enjoy such a treat:) You and your sis look alike. And your mom’s new place looks very cozy:)

  3. Oh My, I love Raclette. I’m French so I know what I’m talking about. When I go back home, you can be sure we eat one (apart when I go back at summer time). Ive brought my machine to England but never amde one here as I cant find the proper raclette cheese ๐Ÿ™

  4. Happy b-day to your sister!!!

    When I was in Switzerland this past summer I SMELLED like cheese no matter how much I showered! Good thing I love it!

  5. Okay, I love cheese but regret to admit that I haven’t heard of this one before. OR seen the cheese melting machine thingy that you were using. That looks amazingly fun and I am going to have to find out where I can get one…as soon as you tell me what it is. ๐Ÿ™‚
