Last night while I was standing in the shower I proceeded to tell James what I wanted to do for Mother’s Day. Here it is:
1- I want to go to the Mother’s Day Brunch at either Elements or Hamiltons
2- I want a Cappuccino. Actually a Caramel Machiato is what I think I’d like. I don’t know for sure, but they look good:)
Now don’t start to stress yet. Keep reading. That’s all I requested, and the response I got was quite funny. James just looked at me and started laughing hysterically. Not just a courtesy laugh, but a big belly laugh, and a, “Well OK!”
So in all reality I know I won’t get either of these requests. First off it’s the Sabbath and I won’t be patronizing a restaurant on the Sabbath. (They really should offer a Mother’s Day brunch on Sat. night. What’s wrong with breakfast for dinner? I would totally go if that was the case.) And secondly, I don’t drink coffee. I like coffee candies, and I love coffee ice cream, but I don’t drink the real stuff, but dang a Caramel Machiato just sounds delish!! All that froth, and creaminess, and caramel swirls. I’ll just doctor up my Pero come Sunday morning. Maybe I’ll be a little scandalous and add real sugar for the special day instead of Splenda. Or maybe I’ll go all out and make a huge cup of ultra thick hot chocolate, and empty the can of spray cream on top:) Sounds wonderful!
If you’re in the mood for some Mother’s Day food ideas, I’m posting pictures and links to what I think would be a perfect Mother’s Day menu. These are just my favorites, and if I lived in a perfect world, I’d have one of each of these this coming Sunday. Happy Mother’s Day to all you muthers! I love my mom sooooo much and I think she’s beautiful, kind, smart, a fabulous cooking teacher, the best witch doctor on the planet, and always so encouraging to me and my kids! I love you mom!! And I will miss you for the next 17 days while you’re away. I may not live at home, but I still hate it when she’s gone. I also love James’ mom and am soooo thankful she let me have her son. That’s got to be hard to have 5 sons. She is still so kind, and encouraging to all the “other women” in her son’s lives. Thanks for teaching James to be such a hard worker, and loving us!
Now go out and make something delicious! Something that you love, since it’s your day:)
