“Mum’s” the word

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.
