Celebrating Mothers

DSC_2538Near Fells Point in Baltimore, MD on Saturday.  Love these sets of parents with their little ones.

DSC_2555For Mother's day, I went to my Mom's house, and my sister and her husband put on a performance.  It was such a good show.  Lots of laughs, and an all around good time.  I even got in on the act and sang a duet with Karen, Loretta Lynn's Coal Miner's Daughter.  It was hysterical.  Neither one of us could remember all of the words.  We sang it three times, and the first time was the best, but no one had their video cameras on.  Mom has the last version on her iPad.

I made food (which I forgot to take pictures of).  I made as much as I could ahead of time, and did the rest when I got to Mom's and then put everything out, and I was done.  

The menu consisted of:

  • Pecan Crusted Chicken Tenders (based on this Rachael Ray recipe).
  • Spring mix salad with Compari tomatoes and spring onions, served with Honey and Poppyseed dressing
  • Brie en Croute with Raspberry and Pecans (Paula Deen)
  • Pan Fried Onion Dip (Ina Garten)  This dip was SO GOOD, and is going to become a staple for future gatherings.  The dip was served with Utz Potato Chips and fresh vegetables
  • Pineapple Casserole (Paula Deen)
  • Peach and Raspberry Crisp (Ina Garten)

It was a nice and relaxing day.

No stress.

The way all celebrations should be.
