After an almost knockdown-dragout a few years back my
mom and I made peace.  She gets Thanksgiving (ALL of
Thanksgiving, I dont get to help or bring a thing
(trust me, I TRIED) and I get the Goose on Xmas day.
This year though I get a treat, I get to cook my
Mothers BIG ZERO BIRTHDAY dinner. (she wanted to go
out, the restaurant is closed on the big day, and she
wont have it any other day... SO I GET TO COOK!)  Last
week we were talking and in passing she mentioned a 9
course meal she had read or heard about SO Im running
with the idea.  
Its modern, but I would love suggestions or input, the
only thing non- negotiable is the main course.

Shrimp cocktail and Lox and bagel bites
Champagne (sparkling Syrah)

Mushroom consome

Field greens with vinaigrette

Lemon sorbet 

Grilled or pan sautéed filet mignon w Mushroom
King Crab legs with drawn butter
Baked potato with sour cream and chives
Steamed asparagus
Fresh baked rolls and butter
Syrah (not sure the kind yet, possibly kingfisher)

cheese course (no more than 3, mom hates cheese, so 
jam and fresh breads

Cherries jubilee over vanilla ice cream

Chocolate truffles and meringues kisses
After-dinner liquors

Birthday cake 

Im not sure I like the order of the post dinner
courses yet (but cherries jubilee followed by cheese
seemed wrong too) 

and Im still dithering what kind of cake I want to
make her.  a Hazelnut torte, or a chocolate truffle
torte, or small versions of my zero cake (nuts and
chocolate covered with marzipan and then glazed with
dark chocolate - too much work for anything but a
birthday ending in zero) done in mouse, hedgehog or
lady bug shapes (her faves) or?????

Would love to hear what the list would change or add.

In Service and Thanks
