It is a great day to celebrate Mother's.
Mine is one special lady!! For those of you who haven't had the privilege to meet her she is the most amazing Christian woman I know, her faith astounds me on a daily basis. She definitely knows no stranger, and brings joy and a smile everywhere she goes. I can only hope to someday be the mother that she has been to me.
I am often told that I "look just like your mother" and I always smile and say thank you. There is no greater compliment on earth!!
In honor of my mother I made her favorite side dish for supper tonight, garden fresh green beans! I picked a good mess this afternoon and even snapped the ends (something she does not do).
I owe all of my love and passion for cooking to her, she inspires me to make great food even if I sometimes have to tweak her Paula Deen habits and make my recipes "Not my Mommas Meal."
I still love butter though :)
Even though I didn't get to see her today she knows I love her dearly!!
I even baked Sam some cookies in my ode to Annie :)
