Mother's Day

Mother's Day was a wonderful day. I had a wonderful note from Chelsea on facebook and notes from Brooke, Bret and her girls with a very cute vest. A big hug from Tess and she made dinner. And lots of love and gifts from Glen and the kids. I also made sure I didn't work too hard.
This was the first Mother's Day without my mom. And so to remember her I made some of her recipes that we all love, throughout the week. Like the chicken and dumplings pictured above. It is so good and the aroma and flavors bring me back to when I was a child. It was a signature dish of hers.

I also made sour cream sugar cookies. I used to love sticking the glass in the sugar and then pressing down on the cookie dough to make the cookie shapes. They aren't the prettiest cookie, but they are yummy.

Finally, I made a rhubarb pie. Every spring my mom would make this pie. A lot of people don't like rhubarb, but they need to give it a try. Even Bret, Noah and Tess liked it.
