Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to everyone. I have had a really nice day so far, reading through blog friends' comments, opening e-cards from family, talking on the phone to family, and enjoying watching Lou sit on the love seat and play with his computer. He is home from the little adventure of pneumonia in both lungs which morphed into congestive heart failure and continued to morph into pancreatitis. I love my husband, but he is really trying to win the My Disease Contest, and I really wish he would drop out of this particular contest. However, he is in great spirits and had done a lot of cooking, probably out of self-defense. I did make burgers last night, the mixed meat kind that he likes, and I even shaped them like ovals so they would fit on the mini sub sandwich buns that were in the house. If we have spaghetti and meatballs, baked chicken, manicotti or stuffed cabbage, I will exhaust my meal expertise. He did brighter up when I offered to bake mandel bread or poppyseed cake, so I am redeemed.....

  1. Sounds like you had a nice day. How did the cake turn out? What kind did you make? I love poppy seed cake, the one with the thick, thick layer of poppy seed filling on top and the streusel over it....yummmm!
