Today is Mother’s Day, and what a wonderful day it has been. Not only did I get to spend the day with my beautiful children and doting husband, I also got to spend it with my own mother, from whom I have garnered so much valuable insight into motherhood and life in general.
Having a day with family is certainly gift enough, but I was also surprised with a brand new copy of Mastering the Art of French Cooking by the quirky and fabulous Julia Child, along with Louisette Bertholle and Simone Beck.
How I’ve managed to survive all these years without this quintessential tome is beyond me; but suffice it to say, I’ll be featuring several recipes from this classic in the very near future.
So, happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there. I hope yours was as peaceful and satisfying as mine has been. We were blessed with fabulous weather, fabulous food (both at my breakfast out with the boys and our lunch at Mom’s house) and a fabulous virtual visit (via Skype) with my husband’s family, including his mother and grandmother (who got to see the newest addition to our family live for the first time today – isn’t technology amazing!).
