Mothers Day

j made mother’s day quite delightful as he literally slaved away in the kitchen for most of it. He made a spectacular dinner of london broil, smoothered in rosemary and some of the best mashed potatoes ever. I seriously could have eaten a plate of the potatoes and been 100% satisfied! He is big on the avocado right now, and so we had some in a nice salad with homemade dressing. To top it off, he made an amazing cake, yes, from scratch! This little number was on the cover of the December issue of Southern Living and he has drooled over it since. I looked at how long it would take to make and saw the 6-7 hour time-frame and decided that I’d let better women than I tackle that one. I must say, he was busy for most of the night and day today making it. I think he deserves a huge blue ribbon for what he pulled off! Thanks Babe!

It’s been pure joy having these three children all together this past year. The ups and downs have come and continue yet…and I pray my Maker is making me into a better Mom for it. It was a sweet day indeed.

    Ok, trying not to be jealous. I love my husband for all his many qualities. But cooking is not one of them. Heating up a frozen pizza is as FAR as it goes. So, good job J! You are a brave man. (and could you maybe give my man some pointers?)
