Mother's Day Meal

For Mother's Day, we had my mom, dad and grandma over for dinner. We decided to make one of our favorites: grilled pizza.

But first we had a delicious Caprese salad with fresh mozzarella, basil leaves and tomatoes, all drizzled with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
For the pizza, we made two kinds. The first had BBQ sauce spread over the dough, then cooked chicken with spices and a bit of sauce, sauteed red onion, chopped cilantro and shredded sharp cheddar.
The other had a creamy garlic sauce, sauteed yellow and green peppers, mushrooms, artichokes and a bit of Parmesan cheese.
With the pizza, we toasted some roasted garlic bread we got at Outpost.

For dessert, I cheated a bit, and bought--rather than baked--an angel food cake with strawberries and organic vanilla ice cream. Angel food cake is one of my favorites!

Everyone really seemed to like everything. We were pretty pleased!
