    Ascherer, Happy Birthday and Happy Mothers' Day :) There is a special joy in being a Mom to a furkid!

    It is so beautiful out today, we should probably do something on the grill. What exactly, I have no idea yet.

    Happy Mothers' Day everyone. Hope you are all enjoying your Mom or your special memories of her.

    ascherer - thanks for the kind Mother's Day wishes for everyone. It sounds like you had a wonderful dinner with her last night. And HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you today!!

    I am going shopping with my 13-year old today and then we are having a sushi and frozen yogurt picnic at the park. That seems like a perfectly reasonable dinner on a beautiful day! I can't wait. My oldest is working today, but she gave me a gorgeous rose bouquet this morning. So sweet!

    Happy Sunday everyone!

    Tonight we celebrated Mother's Day with my Momma at another locals only know restaurant (Hanser House) in Litchfield. We all had seafood which is their specialty. All of the seafood they cook is locally caught and it does come through in the flavor. We are trying to hit all the good spots before traffic becomes the mess it always is at the beach in the summer.

    Momma got a great surprise while we were out shopping. My Brother is coming home Monday morning and leaving Tuesday afternoon. She loves having her children close enough to home that they just come visit for a evening or two.

    Happy Mother's Day to all of our Mothers. Most are female but some are male. Some have children, some have fur babies, and some (like nurses & teachers) take care of other people's children but all deserve a shout out on this Mother's Day.

    ybaverage2003 - super buy on the pork roast! Enjoy!

    I will admit - I had chicken on salad yet again. I promise to eat something else tomorrow. LOL

    Found a Boston Pork roast at FL, managers special, for $3.63 ( 3 pounds!!!) In the Dutch oven with a puree of chicken broth and guajilo peppers and some brown sugar. Shredded pork sammies with pickled red onion and salad for dinner.. YUM !

    jdouglas13 - that's a great idea to turn the bread into pizza. Sounds delicious.

    I always love for yourself nights! :) They don't come around often enough.

    I got a huge loaf of "artisan" Italian bread at HT yesterday with the plan to turn it into easy sausage pizza with leftover spaghetti sauce.
