Mother's Day Delayed

I know, I've been a bit MIA, have ya missed me? You see, there's been this bright yellow orb in the sky raining down warmth and well, we haven't seen it in sooo long that I've been soaking up as much of it as I can. 

Last weekend was officially Mother's Day but as you read here, my mom was at the beach. So we postponed Mother's Day and had it this weekend. My parents came over and we had lunch and made cupcakes. My man actually grilled for the first time. I'm the one who usually does the grilling. He did a great job though. Chicken was perfect. 
   
We had baked beans too but I don't like those. Yes I know this isn't a pro food picture but that's not what this blog is about. It's about inspiring YOU to have more get together's. So fire up that grill and invite some people over. 
Lunch with my parents was yummy. Oh yes, those are strawberry daiquiris, mmmm mmm 
My mom likes to cook and bake.  I didn't inherit her love of cooking but I do like to bake.  So we baked cupcakes together. Mom brought over a recipe for angel food cupcakes filled with strawberry filling and topped with cooked frosting. Sounds delish right, well...
They look soo pretty but they were... meh. But hey, that's how it goes sometimes. You never know if a recipe is going to be a keeper until you try. 

It doesn't matter that there were no party decorations or that the cupcakes didn't taste as fabulous as they looked. What mattered was time with family. 

Now that the sun has decided to finally show itself, I think I see more BBQ's and cupcake making coming :)

  2. Yeah Toni, glad to hear you've been out enjoying the sun too. That's what my mom said when she saw the picture of my daiquiri on my personal FB page. Of course we made them for her :)
