This year was pretty low key since hubby is in the Southwest and son is in the Pacific Ocean..err..wait, he's on a ship in the Pacific Ocean..sounds better doesn't it ;)
We had dinner with the in-laws and came home to enjoy this...
Homemade Strawberry Pie with Cool Whip! Just 24 hrs ago, those strawberries were minding their own business hanging from the vine....until I got ahold of them!
My first plant of the season courtesy of my son before he left.
He did quite well I think.
No Mother's Day is complete without my Mother's fruit salad recipe.
Nothing fancy just a mixture of canned and fresh fruit hidden in that pile of fluffy white whipped topping, you know the kind in a carton that you have to whip up. Sometimes I add walnuts, sometimes not. I make it every year, a sort of comfort food, mainly helps me feel closer to her.
Almost 20 years she's been gone and I still miss her everyday. I guess I always will!
