Mother of a day ...

Mother's Day today . . might be a Hallmark event but for us it meant, drinks under my sister's Pecan tree ....


Morrocan Lamb on the barbie . . .



Green salad with Roasted Pumpkin and avocado . . .

My awesome sour cream potato bake . . .


Why my family can't take a serious photo really pisses me off . . .

Resty poos between courses . . .erm too many legs?


Borrowed hat but it did the job . . .


Dogs apparently like raspberry pavlova . . .

That BBQ sure does look good and I do not even eat lamb, so I will pretend it was beef or chicken. Yup, it sure does look yummy. But I do need to ask, what is a raspberry pavlova? It sounds yummy too, and if the dogs like it, then I know it must be good. All berries taste good. Is it similiar to a blueberry cobbler. Now I am hungry and will have to think of something to buy at Costco tomorrow for dinner. Maybe I better just keep pretending I am on a diet.

Happy Mother's Day.

God bless.

Haha Gleds, we'd be lost without the barbie

Ribbon it was a lovely understated but wonderful day. Shows you don't have to spend a fortune to have a good time.

Sherry a Pavlova is a combination of egg white and sugar whipped and cooked slow until it's crunchy on the outside and marshmallowey on the inside. Cool, top with cream and fruit of your choice.
