I love May – the longer warmer days, the celebration of Mothers, the flowering gardens, the pool opening and the birthday of my firstborn. This year we had a few added events to celebrate and make the month extra-special!
We kicked off the month with prom –
Then moved into Mothers’ Day and the firstborn’s 22nd birthday (no pics, but it did happen). We took a trip to Boston for a college graduation –
And returned home just in time for the Blue Angels and a high school graduation –
We cooked for 15 in a rental kitchen and roasted a pig for 50 –
So, what did we eat? And what are we eating next? To be honest, it’s all a bit of a blur. I do know what’s on the menu tonight, because it was created by my youngest to celebrate her 13th birthday today (the emphases are all hers):
- Steak “RARE” seasoned with Borsari
- Pasta with ham and bacon and peas “YES HAM AND BACON”
- Green beans “LIKE MOM MAKES THEM”
- Chocolate cake with strawberry-raspberry filling and chocolate frosting “THREE LAYERS OF CAKE”
Hope your month was extra-special too! xo M.
