My birthday was last month, and I posted about the terrific dinner my husband and I had at Root & Bone that week to celebrate. As my birthday gift from my two adult sons and my son's girlfriend (in addition to the gorgeous flowers they sent), they are giving me a home cooked meal that we will be having tonight. (The timing is perfect- I have to work at the Book Cellar today, and Saturday night's dinner always vexes me.)
They will also be able to combine it with my Mother's Day dinner, making it a double celebration. When we lived upstate, for Mother's Day my husband and sons would grill my favorite sandwich- a BBQ chicken breast with mushrooms and green onions on an onion roll. We miss grilling on the deck, but I am happy that I will get my chicken sandwich today!
In my birthday card, they enclosed a Happy Birthday Dinner Menu, listing all of the courses. We start with homemade mango salsa (I love mango anything) and homemade guacamole (my favorite). The salad course is a Caesar Salad, and then we have the chicken sandwich entree, along with grilled vegetables with olive oil and Parmesan cheese and loaded baked potatoes. We finish with cupcakes from Two Little Red Hens (Red Velvet, please).
We'll get to see JD, Ryan and Monica and I won't have to do the dishes or empty the garbage- I can't wait!
I want to wish all of the mothers out there a very Happy Mother's Day- I hope your families treat you like a Queen!
