After breakfast I headed to my mom’s house to hang out with her. We spent some QT picking avocados.

Pick a big one, win a prize.

I was in charge of all the food because I didn’t want my mom or SIL to worry about it. But, I kept it easy peasy with chicken burgers on pretzel buns, kale salad (from a Costco mix), fruit salad and lemon bars. Okay. Basically everything was from Costco. It works. Actually my mom and SIL LOVED it. Boom.

All right, now I have to clean up the kitchen for my mom.

Love you!


Question: What did you do today?

    My family has a tradition of going on hikes for Mother’s and Father’s Day every year. :) This year we hit Twin Falls in Washington State, then undid all of that hard cardiovascular work by going nuts at brunch. Worth it.

    How nice of you to make lunch for everyone! I LOVE Costco’s pretzel rolls.

    We had a lovely weekend starting with grandma’s birthday dinner on Saturday; Sunday was pretty low key – we’re waiting for my bro and SIL and nieces to be back at the end of the month before celebrating. Glad everyone had a great weekend.

    Brunch at my brothers house and then we just sat around talking. Nothing special. It was such beautiful weather here…a gift for all the moms indeed. (Just had to fix my autocorrect because instead of mom it kept typing m&ms. Lol. My priorities are whack!!

    We had a late lunch at my parents. I have been talking about the Creamy Chicken Lasagna from the Runner’s World Cookbook for months, so that is what we ate!! Delish!!

    That kale salad from Costco is the best thing on earth :) I warm up some rotisserie chicken (from Costco of course), mix it with a little Sweet Baby Ray’s, and toss it tin the salad. Amazing :) Try it 😉

    My Mom lives 2 states away but I sent a gift and we talked on the phone. My son and I are celebrating tonite although he already bought me shoes and clothes because he’s a great kid.

    Your Mom is very pretty by the way and you can tell her I said so :)

    I called my mom to wish her a happy mother’s day and had a cookout with my future MIL and family. The chicken burgers on pretzel bun sound delicious. I think pretzel buns are by far my fave way to eat a burger! Your meal makes me want to get a Costco membership! :)

  8. says

    I wish we had a Costco here, oh well! Looks like you did it right for your mom yesterday! My husband made sure my day was super special with a brunch he cooked himself and some lovely gifts. Today is a dreary one so we are mostly just hanging out inside watching movies and such.
