Happy Mothers Day

Happy Mothers Day to all of the Mothers out there. Especially the one we call Mamoo!

I had a pretty good day. I slept in. Had breakfast made for me. Was able to thread most of my next warp. Has a bath that was relatively uninterrupted (a miracle in itself!). And had a lovely supper.

Scandinavian Chicken Salad. I posted the recipe here.  It was one of the first things that Bill made for me and it had been a family favorite ever since.

Mira also made me a cake. It was a Lightening Cake. So called because of the speed with which it can be whipped up. She had her friend over and the two of them were reading the recipe together. As in one would read one bunch of instructions and the other would read the next. Surprisingly enough, this resulted in a few mix ups and the cake wasn't constructed as quickly as advertised.

She then had fun with icing.
This was her first venture into cake decorating and the plan was to try and experiment with as many tips as there were. Colour mixing was also explored.
I likened it to a coral reef gone amuck. The cake was tasty, but I have to admit that the icing was a little over the top.
