Hope everyone is having a nice Mother’s Day. Today is also Eat what you want day. What a coincidence! Now I get to eat what I want. My husband ordered a Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake from Ponzio’s which is one of my favorite desserts. Ponzio’s is a wonderful diner that has a great bakery. It is more like a restaurant but in Jersey, many places are called diners. If you have ever watched Guy Fieri’s, Diners, Drive Ins and Dives, you probably have had a glimpse of some NJ diners. My husband is picking the cake up later. If not, it would have been gone before dinner. Just a note that he likes it too!
My daughter made me this breakfast tray in her fourth grade class. Isn’t it cute? It was so nice of the teachers to have a Mother’s Day project like this. The class even made muffins. Blueberry muffins are my favorite. You can see it wrapped in the picture.
On to another one of my Mother’s Day food gifts. Now that I think about it, there were many food gifts. I guess I will take food and kitchen appliances over jewelry anytime. And maybe a gym membership. I love fruit but it is even better covered with good dark chocolate. My husband came home yesterday with a box from David Bradley’s Chocolates. Inside were strawberries but also another surprise. There were big juicy orange segments covered in dark chocolate. I was a little hesitant at first, but the oranges were delicious. Don’t they look yummy? It was a great combination and I will have to try making them myself. They even topped my love for chocolate strawberries.
Hope you are doing something fun today, whether you are a mom or just eating what you want!
