I made a challah strata, melon wrapped with prosciutto, and crab stuffed mushrooms. My grandmother always made stuffed mushrooms on holidays. I kinda just made the recipe up for mine, and I think she used sausage for hers. I want to make them with sausage next time for a change.
My sister and I made a book for our mom's birthday gift. All her friends submitted stories and memories. Some made poems and gave us old photos. My sister designed the whole thing on shutterfly. My mom was really touched, and I'm so glad.
My sister leaves to head back to China this afternoon. I cried the whole way home from her goodbye dinner last night. I miss her terribly, but I know she is so happy and having the adventure of a lifetime there! I can't expect her to stay here when the world is calling her name! It was great having three weeks together. Now I'll have to start saving so I can visit her in Shanghai!
