Happy Mother’s Day to my “Mum”, big sister, sister in law and all the rest of you too! I send each of you flowers…
…and more flowers… from Momma Cat.
And, oh, I don’t know if you’ve heard but apparently I’ve made the news (and someone’s back)…
Okay, enough nonsense.
So what did you do today?
We ate fondue or fundue in my honor. No nonsense here!
There was lots of chocolate though.
There were homemade cards and flowers from the chilies.
This is Chicken with pancetta and sage, garlicky mashed potatoes, sautéed mushrooms and green beans a la orange. You have to try this chicken. It’s very easy. The recipe came from Chef Marco Canora’s cookbook “Salt to Taste”. The recipe linked above is the closest I could find on the internet to it.
It was a great day and now I’m here finding some cheesy-ness to end this with. Mom’s love “cheesy” on M-Day!
The Little Things
- It is the little things that count
And give a mother pleasure -
The things her children bring to her
Which they so richly treasure...
The picture that is smudged a bit
With tiny fingerprints,
The colored rock, the lightning bugs,
The sticky peppermints;
The ragged, bright bouquet of flowers
A child brings, roots and all -
These things delight a mother's heart
Although they seem quite small.
A mother can see beauty
In the very smallest thing
For there's a little bit of heaven
In a small child's offering.
