My Children Love Me

I hope everyone had a lovely Mother's Day. My children and my husband spoiled me as usual.

Bob was tired of hearing me talk about wanting to refresh my French so he gave me the basic and intermediate Berlitz conversational course. I love it. So beware, I'll probably be posting a few "Frenchy" type desserts before long. Crepes, hm?

My daughter Lily made this delicious Hershey's Dark Chocolate cake for me. It's the first time she bakes a cake from scratch and let me tell you it was delicious. A lovely chocolate buttercream frosting topped it off along with some large, sweet and scrumptious strawberries.
Lily also got me this Mother - Daughter coffee cup. She says it will remind me of her when she takes off to live and go to school in Dallas in a couple of months. As if I really needed something to remind me of her!
My son Mikey and daughter-in-law Jenn, sent me a wonderul Mother's Day care package. CHOCOLATE!!! In the box I found this Creme Brulee Chocotini Mix and these beautiful chocolate dish towls. You don't need to tell me twice to pull out the vodka from the freezer. It was divine. But that just was enough for them. I also got these wonderful show gels.
There's milk, white and dark chocolate. I'm alternating each day. I guess my kids know me pretty well. So, right now I'm a happy mom. I hope you all had an equally wonderful day.
