Mother’s Day started out early with the usual 5am Rose feeding then downstairs to start doing a whole bunch of baking. Maple Chocolate Chip Pancake Muffins, Sugar Doughnut Muffins and Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies. The pancake muffins were pretty good. I think they would have been better fresh from the oven with syrup but not bad a few hours old. The doughnut muffins were fabulous. Soft, tender, moist and flavorful. A bit like a cake donut shaped like a muffin and rolled in sugar. Mmmmmmmmm. The cookies tasted like Nutter Butters. Oh yah.
We took the muffins down to Stockton for brunch at Steve’s sister Karen’s beautiful new house. I have quite a few pictures, almost all with Rose in them. She’s just too photogenic. I can’t help it. *grin*
In the evening we headed to me parents house for a reeeealy yummy dinner of my dad’s split pea soup and Hawaiian rolls. It was a nice end to a nice day. Rose went all out with the gifts too. A dozen red roses and a box of Redvines (Steve), a really great cookbook that I wanted (my dad) and a hand and foot print in plaster (my mom via her friend Amanda). I felt loved.
