I hope everyone had a great Mother’s Day. We certainly did. My girls made me some lovely Mother’s Day cards that I’m sure took them a great deal of time and effort. They also made some original cards for both of their grandmothers.
My sister came to visit from South Carolina so it was a very special Mother’s Day for our mom since she had both of us to share it with. We celebrated with a Mother’s Day brunch complete with Virgin Bloody Marys that I think tasted better than the traditional version. You’ll never guess the secret ingredient! But I’ll get to that a little bit later. We sat on Mom’s back patio and drank our beautiful Bloody Marys while watching the Little Red River flow by. What a peaceful way to spend the holiday. My sister made a delicious quiche with spinach, ham, and mushrooms and a fruit salad. We figured out how to make crispy hash browns on a sheet tray in the oven. They came out wonderfully crisp and no one had to stand over the pan watching them. BONUS! (Check back throughout the week, as I will be sharing some of these recipes.)

After brunch we took some family photos. My sister and I are so grateful that Mom is doing so well after her ordeal in the hospital in Tucson just over a month ago. We hope we have many more Mother’s Day’s to share together.
