Happy Mother’s Day! I’m excited to have my mom visit for a Mother’s Day brunch – made by me and my kids. They are excited to make it as they are in cooking in school – so some of the recipes are what they’ve learned. We will have a berry lemonade; brioche french toast (made with heavy cream instead of regular milk); sausage and poached egg. I am certain that the Fitbit I recently got will get a workout later that day. I’ve been obsessed since getting it – to make sure that I’m getting in my steps – but I also try to log my food (feel free to request a Fitbit friendship – but warning: I’m a bit competitive). I may also make them play tennis with me – it’s a good chance for them to gang up on me. Two against one.
