I imagine you all think I totally forgot about you but on the contrare…Life just happened and although I love food I love my family more…first and foremost my kids.  Raime has worked hard for the last two and half years to get her Masters – Acute Care Nurse Practitioner.  We are so proud of her and wanted to have a party but she insisted on just dinner out with the immediate family…well that was until a week and a half before graduation.  So…she decided as it was Mothers Day and Church Day that the restaurants would be packed and that we couldn’t possibly get seats for all of us and therefore we should just have a get together here at our house.  Of course being all OCDish as I am the to do list quickly turned to a OMG list.   It had been pre-decided that our in ground pool needed a new liner and let’s just say that took up the better part of 4 days….I am omitting the horrid details lol.  Of course I had flower beds to prepare, things to paint, things to fix, things to clean…and on and on.  From sun up to sun down The Hubby and I busted our tails and it was well worth it.  For the menu we opted for a Mexican Bar with all the fixings and desserts.    The food went over great and everyone had a lovely time visiting, playing cornhole and the kids got in the pool.  Raime of course looked beautiful and we were all so proud to honor her accomplishment of graduating with honors.  I couldn’t have asked for a better Mothers Day…having the whole family and extended family together was a true blessing!  The other bonus is that a lot of my to do list for our big 4th of July party is already done!!!    Watch for some new recipes and please keep coming back!
