Mother's Day Weekend- It Isn't Just One Day Long, You Know..








Saturday started with breakfast out at a local restaurant. We then did grocery shopping for the Mother's Day feast. I then took my wife's van for a wash and wax, picked up some candy for her(locally made!), rented a movie she wanted to see (The Golden Compass), and made last trip to store for the forgotten baking potatoes... I then came home, made the apple crisp for Sunday dinner, and caught my breath! Made a loaded up bean dip for supper/snack, using tortilla chips as the dippers... Watched the movie, (which I actually enjoyed!) and hit the hay.
It's Sunday now, time to start preparing the feast! The rib-eyes are marinating and the rest of this post, with more photos will be up this afternoon...
It was raining, which usually means lots of smoky charcoal flavor! I hope you all know you don't have to wrap baked potatoes in aluminum foil when cooking in oven... Blueberry muffins, and asparagus- now let's eat! Apple Crisp later- too full to even try for dessert... Hope you are all enjoying your Mothers Day- I'm pretty sure my wife did...

Oh my LORD! WHY can't you have married me? A man that does all that cooking AND makes Apple Crisp????? You had me at "washed and waxed".

So, since you didn't marry me, how 'bout that recipe for Apple Crisp, huh???? PLEASE!!!!!!

snowelf said...

Mmm! Delish! I'm glad you guys had a great weekend! :)
I really enjoyed The Golden Compass. It's not for everyone, but the creativity behind it was really interesting.

snow- I heard later there was a backlash from the Christian community, accusing the book/film of spreading atheism...
