Happy Birthday

Birthday celebration for my oldest son was pretty wonderful.  He loves fall and loves all the wonderful food that comes with it.  He is a lover of anything pumpkin so I decided to make a dinner that revolved around all of those flavors.

I discovered a recipe for pumpkin quiche with gorgonzola & caramelized onion---perfect!

Then as the day went on and I was anticipating serving this hopefully wonderful meal...I walked around the house and pulled together a tablescape that even I fell in love with!!!

Roasted pumpkin gorgonzola caramalized onion quiche

I served this with boneless pork ribs that cooked in the crock pot for 9 hours (I embelished store bought bbq sauce with no sugar added apple sauce, lots of cinnamon, dash of allspice, a hefty splash of no sugar added cranberry juice, sliced apples and vidalia onions).  I also made a salad with mixed greens, sliced pears, almonds, goat cheese and a raspberry vinaigrette.

Our dinner was lovely & shared with family and a special girlfriend of the guest or honor.
Happy Birthday Austin.
