Mother's Day dinner with lots of love

This post is not about recipe sharing on the food I've cooked or attempted.

Last year, for the first time my teens offered to cook sumptuous dinner on Mother's Day. Sure, why not as I could get a rest .. so 'Mom's not cooking'. Recalled that when they were preparing and cooking the food, I was walking in and out of the kitchen. Of course I was afraid that they might cut their fingers while cutting the meat, they would burn down the kitchen etc. etc ... ha haa ! Until I got chased out ... so I "waited patiently" at the dining area for dinner to be served. Yes, yummy dinner in remembrance.

Since then I looked forward to a hearty sumptuous Mother's Day dinner celebration at home ... specially cooked by my lovely teens.

Same for this year ... we shopped and bought the ingredients in the supermarket after lunch. He spent the evening in the kitchen... busy with the preparation.
My big boy was the chef ... Here's a picture of him "chef in action"
Here's the dinner menu:
Shepherd's Pie
Pan fried pork chops & sausages
Salad with toasted walnuts
Dessert - canned longan with strawberries

My girl had an event to attend, so she helped to prepare dessert when she reached home. Canned longan in heavy syrup added some fresh strawberries.

I was surprised to see a small cake box in the fridge.  On her way home, my girl bought this cake from The Icing Room. Customers could make their cake designs and decor.

Yes a homely yummy dinner with lots of love.

Wishing all mothers who dropped by this blog a Blessed and Happy Mother's Day ! Best wishes from Karen.
