Mothers Day Celebration

We had an exceptional Mothers Day today. First we drove with Grandma to Saguaro National Park. The cacti were all in bloom to celebrate. Some of the arms of the saguaro had a burst of blossoms at the end, and looked as if they were holding out a bouquet.

After our drive we returned home to champagne and a deli feast for lunch. I don't buy prepared foods very often, but there is a gourmet grocery store near us with a stellar deli counter, and I was busy all day yesterday adjudicating at a piano festival.

Our menu: pickled herring in sour cream; black peppercorn pate; cold teriyaki salmon; broccoli salad; rice and artichoke salad; thinly sliced baguette and Ry Krisp. This was followed by homemade Baked Alaska. We all had a nap after.

Happy Mothers Day to all.
