Last week in this post I mentioned in the last paragraph that I have a couple of events that I am cooking for and one of them was Mother's Day at my mom's house. I am planning to serve the same food at both events using my Mom's dinner as a trial run on a couple of new recipes. I brought a salad and an assortment of homemade candy bars for dessert. I really liked the salad. It is a Thai coleslaw, colorful and flavorful. I would definitely make it again. The candy bar assortment included homemade Trix, homemade Payday and homemade Butterfinger candy bars. None were especially difficult and I thought they tasted good and similar to the originals. All in all it was a fun culinary day.
