FABBY: Happy Mother's Day

 The center piece I did in a ceramic basket, in the handle there are hand made flowers.  The two figurines are French, they're my new vintage finds.  I loved their blue hats, I bought them to make a table with my Onion blue and white china.
 Here's one figurine of the girl holding a sheep.  The soup it's Cream of Celery.  The charger and bread plate are pewter.
 A better close up of the Celery Cream, I garnished it with home made potato sticks.
 The rice is made of fresh basil and pine nuts, (rice looks greener in real life).  The meat's Beeh Stroganoff, I make it in round cuts as my hubby doesn't like it in the small piece as the recipe is originally. 

 The Beef Stroganoff onion pattern platter and the girl's  vintage figurine.
 The Apple Streudal came out really good.
 My version of the Greek Salad.
 The Granola Cookies they had with coffee at the end of the meal.
 Cayetana who's 4.  Bellow, Victoria, who's 6, 10 years old.
Hello dear blog Mothers!   My daughters who live far from me, some hours away, came to visit us to spend Mother's Day with me, along with my granddaughters, Vicgtoria 6,10 yrs. old and Cayetana 4.  They're going back home Sunday, the "real" Mom's Day, therefore, I decided to make Saturday our MD, so this is my post...I couldn't catch everybody for the pic, but I did my own Mother, 81.  I didn't come out because I looked awful with a big red, puffy eye with a stai!...oh well,  next time.
Happy Mother's Day to you all.
I'm linking at Chari's.  Happy to Design
