A GRAND DAY FOR THE M

Yesterday the BRD invited SWMBO (also known as The M to her eldest daughter) and me to a Mothers' Day Brunch at her home. 

Following Bloody Mary's and antipasto plates of shrimp and bruschetta with goat cheese and tomatoes, we repaired to her dining table, which was beautifully set with flower arrangements and the Beau Jack's late mother's china.




Shame on me for not photographing the food but I'll give you an idea of how good it tasted. Eggs Benedict, bacon, asparagus, new potatoes, mixed fresh fruit, Mimosas, and for dessert (as if we needed it!) fresh strawberries, ice cream and Angel Food cake.

Holy mackeral!

To top off the day, Beau Jack presented his surrogate Mom with this beautiful live orchid.


The M and I went home sated and mightily pleased. A grand day, indeed.

Fit for a queen, as we used to say.

That sounds almost perfect. Maybe missing English muffins and orange marmalade but otherwise....WOW!

Someone certainly has a flair for entertaining. Lovely table.

Well that all just sounds fabulous!

No, no, Joe. The Eggs Benedict was on an English muffin and we had extras with orange marmalade!

Should read "SWMBO and me." Not "I."

Absolutely correct. I shall emend it.
