First off, happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there! I wasn't sure how today was going to be. It's been less than two months since my mom died, and I knew that I was going to have a hard time today. It wasn't great, but it wasn't as bad as I feared. Jamie and Brianna made muffins for breakfast and spaghetti & meatballs for dinner, with minimal assistance from me. =)
And I got some cool presents! It looks like I'm going to have to rearrange my bookshelf in the kitchen again. I love my copy of Alice Medrich's Bittersweet, and I've been wanting a copy of her new Pure Dessert since it came out. And I've mentioned before how my husband likes to find interesting chocolates for me to try, so I wasn't surprised to receive some new ones. One of them is from Askinosie, which Laurie has been talking about.
