Yesterday was my mom's birthday. I could, as many daughters would, go on and on about why I am so grateful that my mom is my mom. Today's not that day, since I'm thumbing away on my phone and hoping to get caught up here!
She's great, though, so stay tuned for more on my million reasons to be thankful for her.
I'm thinking of her today because I was actually able to prepare a decent meal and have it all ready at the same time, something my mom makes seem effortless, as did my grandma before her.
When I got married and started cooking (although my husband did the majority of the cooking in those early years and still does quite a bit), I was certain I would never master the art of having a meal ready at the same time without one thing being burned, another soggy and another raw.
I still don't consider myself an expert meal preparer, but I celebrated it today. We had a tough day at our house and this little victory was exactly what I needed.
