Sunday din dins

For my parent's Christmas present, we gave them 5 dinners made by us, hot and ready. They get to come eat yummy food and enjoy our amazing company. Win win. 

My cute dad, mom, and little sis, Liz.

Tonight was dinner #3. Chas and I made apple stuffed pork loin roast with potato gorgonzola gratin on the side. If it sounds totally legit, that's because it was. We don't mess around. 

Side note: We live in a basement but check out that window in the background. Makes it look like we live under the sea. Cool.


In exchange for the beautiful spinach salad with avocado my mom brought, we introduced my dad to the wonderful world of Angry Birds after a dessert of vanilla and/or mint chocolate chip ice cream. 

Another side note: See my 1950's magnolia flower dinner plates? Totally spotted those exact same plates used in An Education. The movie was dumb but seeing your vintage dinnerware used in a period film was...not dumb. It almost made watching the movie worth it. (Chas would probably disagree.)
