Cabbage Patch Rolls

February 28, 2010

My mother’s birthday was last Friday.  She and Daddy were at the lake for the weekend, so they came for dinner last night.  We toasted the evening with a signature drink of a Champagne Pomegranate Cocktail, followed by Roasted Red Pepper Soup and an entree of Cabbage Rolls with Champagne Risotto.  For dessert, I picked up some Black & White Cookies — my mom’s favorite, from when she was little in New York.

I’ve been playing with the settings on my camera.  What do you think?
