Love it

I blew it.  Last week my columns should have been about celebrating Mother's Day-but since I changed the days I'm posting-I completely forgot!  I'm sorry!

Nevertheless, I hope everyone had a wonderful day with their kids and/or their own moms.

Our family was just happy that my mom was here and able to celebrate.  She's still weak from her hospitalization, but our mother has the strength of 10 women, so the celebration of the day and all the May birthdays went on as planned.

We decided on Breakfast for Dinner.  It's easy, delicious and it's truly everyone's favorite meal.  My sister and I bought fresh bagels of about 4 different kinds, lite and regular creamed cheese, lox, strawberries, eggs for "eggels" and freshly ground chocolate raspberry coffee, creamer.  Mom insisted on ordering a rum cake from our "family" bakery (the one that has made every birthday cake needed for our clan since my 6th birthday).
Our daughter lives closest-so she went over with her crew and set the table so my parents didn't have too.

This year there were 4 moms:  our mom, me, my sister and my daughter.  Unfortunately I just listed these by age.  Darn-I'm now in the upper bracket.  

We celebrated the following birthdays (these are done by dates):  Adam who turned 25, Sarah-27, Dave (our brother-in-law, whom I'm not going to say how old he is), our nephew Jonathon-17, our son-in-law Alex-28 and my dad, bless him, is turning 80.

Quite a celebration!

Now about those "eggels"!  This is the term we use here in SoCal-but I'm pretty sure many other areas use it as well.  It's a breakfast sandwich!  

Friday-some variations to try on the eggel-after all, the weekend will be upon us and we should try something different!

Love it
