Mother’s Day Recap

05/09/2011 at 2:51 pm 75 comments

Hello loves!! Hope you all had a fantastic weekend and a great Mother’s Day yesterday. I spent part of the day at my boyfriend’s sisters house and the other half at my sister in law’s sister’s house (sorry for the verbal confusion)

A lot of good eats were consumed and I wish I could have taken a picture of everything https://i0.wp.com/us.social.s-msn.com/s/images/emoticons/sad_smile.gif

Frankie and I

My parents Smile

And now the eats!

Made by Frankie's sister

Every good cookie needs a close up shot right? Winking smile  These cookies were the star of the meal

For our actual meal there was lasagna and cauliflower pizza inspired by Julie

Dessert was also equally amazing



Perfect Mother’s Day feast? I think so Winking smile

  • Best thing you ate on Mother’s Day? Mine were these fabulous cookies!!

    Mmmm that cake looks incredible. I’m a cake lover 🙂 umm we didn’t do anything on mothers day, my mom was busy so she didn’t have time for any sort of get together. I did however make my hubs some yummy peanut butter cookies!! (I may have had 3 or 4) 😉
