Your menu sounds to die for.... one question though..... If this is  
your mom's BIG BIRTHDAY dinner and she hates cheese, why have a  
cheese course? Shouldn't the whole dinner be built around HER likes.  
(and if the other diners like cheese, it won't kill them to go  
without this one time.)
Just a thought.
