Happy Mother’s Day!
Today I treated my mom to a special breakfast. I finally got around to making overnight oats. It reminded me of muesli – very fresh tasting! My mom really enjoyed it and I made some for her to enjoy tomorrow. We both agreed it was a nice way to start the day. I also made a smoothie. Let me think of a name for it. Hmm… how about Vanilla Strawberry Cantaloupe Smoothie. I’d like some flaxseed in mine please!
My mom’s bowl.
My bowl, in which I added dry cereal, caramelized banana, coconut oil, peanut butter, and arequipe.
Arequipe is the Colombian version of Dulce de Leche.
We ended up going to this wonderful Indian restaurant. The decorations were all so vibrantly colorful and happy. They had a huge bowl of rose petals with candles amongst the set up. They had Kashmiri Naan but they added sweetened carrot inside… let me tell you. You’ve never had a naan like this before! I only got a few pictures in. The only ones of the food were of the desserts.
All of it left me saying yummmmm. Well, except for the Chocolate Madras cake. I’m not so crazy about super chocolaty cake.
Isn’t she cute? Afterwards the waitress gave her a beautiful rose.
Mom and la rose!
So far I give this day a thumbs up!
Afterwards my mom was feeling tired so me and my dad let her rest. I made her some mint tea to soothe her tummy after our big dunch (that’s lunch and dinner combined). My dad and I decided to go on a bike ride. It was so nice! I have forgotten how beautiful it is around where I live. I’m use to all the stuff that has been built up, so it’s easy to miss the nature that still remains. Then when we got back from our bike ride, my mom was ready for part 2! We gave ourselves facials complete with scrubbing, steaming, extracting, and masking! While we were masking we looked through our Anthropologie catalogs and watched the Lifetime Network. Right now my mom is currently next to me and passed out though. I guess it was a long day for her, huh?
