Red and Blue Berry Sauce

Our first night home with Wesley we were welcomed by our parents and Stuart’s sister with a beautiful home cooked dinner of mashed potatoes, asparagus, and pork chops. My mom made her mashed potatoes, Stuart’s mom made the vegetables, the dads grilled the pork chops, and Audrey made a beautiful berry sauce to put atop the pork. It was a wonderful dinner to celebrate the birth of our first son and the first grandchild on both sides of the family.
