Dinner With The Parents

A few weeks ago we invited my parents over for dinner.
It was a chance to bust out our new china,
and show off our new apartment.

We tried to fancy things up a little and set the table pretty.

We watched some pre-season football on our Ginormous television.

And we ate some really good food.

Cross Rib Roast.  So SO good!
Chive Biscuits
Roasted Potatoes
Brussel Sprouts - served with Parmesan and Pine nuts
Ready to eat!
Lemon Cake with Raspberries
Afterwards, we convinced my parents to watch a 3D movie on our new TV.
And not just any 3D movie,
but a Kelly Slater surfing movie.
I can honestly say I never thought I'd see the day when my parents watched a surf movie.
But it happened.  Wanna see the proof?

It was so great to spend a nice night with my parents
and to say thanks for all they've done for us
(ahem, like throw a wedding).

We're totally even now, right?


  1. Oh my gosh - what a delicious looking meal! Who cooked that roast? It came out perfectly. Mmmm drool worthy dinner. The dessert sounds simple and tasty, as well!

  2. Now I am super hungry! I want those biscuits and potatoes!

  3. Fun! And that dinner is phenomenal. I bet they felt so welcomed in your new home!! :)

  4. So cute! I love the photo of your folks with 3d glasses on. That meal looks phenomenal too. Yum.

  5. Looks like a fun night! Great food and great company! Is it bad that I just ate dinner and I am hungry again from looking at your pics?!

  6. I love brussle sprouts. The food looks really amazing. I wish my family lived close enough to come over for dinner.
