Mother’s Day Brunch Menu

I’ve invited my parents over for Mother’s Day brunch tomorrow and here’s the menu I’m planning. Much of it is made ahead of time so I will be cooking today and will get to just enjoy tomorrow!

Quiches – I’m thinking one sausage, one veggie, and one cheese

Fruit salad

Roasted asparagus

Scones that I bought from a local bakery

Strawberry rhubarb jam

Tomato slices, fresh mozzarella and basil

My mom is bringing her yummy hash brown casserole, which is similar to this recipe but with crushed corn flakes on top instead of ritz crackers, and she’s also bringing bagels

April Vacation So Far

This week is school vacation for all of us! We are definitely enjoying it to the fullest. Anna will turn one on Friday and her family party is Saturday so I’m focused on getting the house in shape and getting ready for the party with decor and some treats. I made this pretty letter A as part of the party decorations! We’ll move it to her room afterwards. We also planted blueberries and raspberries, went fishing, took some nice walks, made pretzels for the first time, and made chocolate covered marshmallows and pretzel rods. And the big news- Anna took her first steps!!!

Getting Ready for Anna’s Party

Anna’s first birthday party is coming up so I’ve been working on some crafty decorations for the garden theme. We are doing a very small party with just our immediate families, but I still want pretty decorations! Here are some progress pictures. I’ll be sure to share the finished products!
