I’m going to try to keep this short, but sheesh I didn’t realize how many pictures I took on Saturday (over 70)!!
I started my morning out working at our graduation ceremony at work. I was bummed I couldn’t sleep in, but once I got going I was a-ok!
Tea rooms hold a special place in my heart. A farmer/neighbor growing up owned one and I started working there when I was 12. Yes, 12! I drove the 4 wheeler to work on all gravel roads! I started a dish washer and after that (and I got a little older!) I waitressed, hosted, and worked in the gift shop! It was so fun. But unfortunately it closed. So whenever I get the chance to go to one I’m all for it!
The menu changes each day while keep a few of their “staples” like soup in a bread bowl or their famous chicken salad! I ordered the Almond Chicken. Here is the description from the menu:
A boneless breast of chicken is lightly breaded with crushed almonds, and seasoned bread crumbs. Baked and served with real mashed potatoes, and smothered in a creamy baby Swiss cheese sauce, and served with candied carrots, a homemade Italian Style cole slaw, and our home baked sweet bread.
Next up was celebrating Mother’s Day with my Mom! And can you believe in the 6 hours we were at her house I forgot to get a picture with her. Here is one from my little sister’s college graduation this past December.
My Mom & Step Dad were watching my niece, Maya, while my Step-Dad’s daughter & her husband were on a mission trip. It was fun to have a little 4 year old add some extra entertainment to our evening!
- 3 c sliced fresh strawberries
- 1 c grapes (i sliced mine in half)
- 1 container of ff cool whip
- 1 sf instant vanilla pudding
- 1 can crushed pineapple
- 1 c marshmallows
Mix pudding and crushed pineapple together, then fold in cool whip. Then add fruit. 1 c = 1 point!! You can also substitute 3 apples for the strawberries. This recipe is from my friend, Jenna!
After our park time we finished up our walk and headed back to my Mom’s. (You can tell from the pictures that it was getting dark!) We had desert and called it a night!
Sunday we celebrated Mother’s Day with Kyle’s Mom with going out to a brunch buffet after church. It was a great weekend celebrating the wonderful Mom’s in our life. I hope you were able to spend some time you Mom!
