What A Meal!

Our dear darling daughter (that's what we call her) made our favorite meal for our last evening in New York.  It was soooo delicious!!  She is an amazing cook and baker and we are so thankful to be the beneficators of her culinary skills.
Our meal: 
 Roast Beef with Mashed Potatoes and Gravy
Fresh Green & Yellow Beans
Black Forest Pie

She knows that Black Forest is my favorite pie. I just love how rich and fudgy this is and the cherry mixture added to the chocolate makes is so smooth and silky.  She made it with fresh black cherries and made her own thickened filling.  It was the BEST!   I just might have to make another one of these when I get back to AZ this week.  Thanks LQ for this great send-off meal!
