This weekend was an insanely busy one, between work events, volunteer events and family events.
But it was also a good one.
I made a dessert.
I had dinner with my friend, Chrissy, last week and she made these “cheesecake” stuffed strawberries for dessert. It seemed easy enough for me to replicate (since it was no-bake…we all know I’m not a baker), so I copied her and made a batch for Mother’s Day yesterday.
I should really make desserts more often. Especially when they’re pretty easy and healthy like this one.
We told my nephews they were stuffed with whipped cream and they went nuts over them. Apparently they don’t think they’re fans of cheesecake but whipped cream they can get on board with. I love kids. They’re so easy to mess with.
We had a fun, drama-free Mother’s Day. My whole family got in on a rousing game of wiffle ball in my parents’ backyard and we all agreed that it was the most fun we’ve all had together in a long time.
We’re practically the Waltons.
And then we feasted.
Lobster is such a special meal for my family, so any time we all eat it together, I’m happy. And happy that I could celebrate Mother’s Day with my wonderful mom and sister.
And lastly, see that there “Recipe” tab? It finally happened. I now have a recipe page. I actually organized and posted a page with (most of) the recipes that I’ve written up on Braise The Roof over the nearly two years that I’ve been blogging.
So that means that I’m finally quasi-legit as a food blogger, right?
See? All good things.
