My perfectly cliched Mother’s Day

I didn’t ask for much. A little time off and not to cook dinner. My family came through in spades. Mark took the kids to and from religious school and fed them breakfast. I spent the gorgeous sunny day gardening.

Dori made me a fabulous lunch. Complete with a menu of choices and her finale – a Greek yogurt parfait (with mint from the new garden).

Mark shopped and cooked a gourmet dinner all afternoon. He made a menu, inspired by Dori’s.

A lovely dinner. Asparagus soup, salad and halibut with tomato compote.

With ice cream sundaes for desert.

Best Mother’s Day ever. Thank you, awesome family!


  1. Sounds like a great day with all your little bunnies!
