FABBY: My Dear Mama

We celebrated Mother's Day last Saturday at my house, as my girls  and grandgirls were coming for a long weekend, but they were heading back home on Sunday, the real MD's!
Here are some pictures of that day, what I cooked and my dearest mother, my best friend and best fan!
 My mama Yolanda, she's 81 and in very good health, she goes for walks by the river side for 45 minutes everyday; for which I thank my dear Lord!
 I used my pewter chargers and bread plates, along with my Chzech, Thums Onion pattern china. Celery cream soup, with garnish of potato chips.
 The Beef Stroganoff, my hubby's and everyone's old favorite!
 I like to serve rice with Basil and Pine-nuts with meats that have some kind of gravy, or it's own juices, like in this case, this rice looks very green in real life; it's great for Christmas because of the color!
 You can see much of the salad in the photo, but it has cheese cubes, ham cubes, zucchini slices, two types of letters,Greek black olives, all one needs is to toss it.  The salad dressing is with yougurt, honey and spices, is truly delish and I serve it separatelly, so anyone can put as much, or as little as they want.
 The Apple streudel came out really good.

 My grandgirl Cayetana 4.
 My grandgirl, Victoria, 6 yrs., 10 mths. old.
 This cotton linen tablecloth is Indian, it has a beautiful finials pattern to it, I just forgot to take a pic, I was so busy!  I close up of mother, she's really so much prettier in person, she's picture shy!
 We're usually together on Wednesday, she has lunch with me and hubby and in the afternoon we go have tea, or coffee at a coffee house, or we go shopping mostly for the home because I like her opinion and she mine.  Hope you all wonderful mothers from Blog Land had a terrific Mother's Day too.

  20. I love these blue and white dishes. I also love the look of that celery soup. Recipe! Recipe!

  21. OH FABBY your mama is BEAUTIFUL and what a wonderful relationship you both have with each other. Just marvellous. My mom is 92 and can't shop with me as much as we used to, but we still have fun.
    Now your hubby does have good taste. I didn't know he owned a pottery shop for 30 yrs? WOW.
    Now one more thing. Why didn't I know you were from Ecuador? I really didn't know that Fabby. You know I'm in Canada right? We are so so far away from each other.
    Your table is stunning as usual. You sure know how to entertain, but then that's what you love.
    Hope your having a great weekend Fabby.
    Oh and no there is no "clitoris" HA HA
    P.S. No need for word verification anymore Fabby. Blogger has taken care of that ; )

  22. You have a beautiful collection.

    Have a fabulous week!

  23. Your mom is putting me to shame! I need to get moving!

  24. Your mother looks amazing for her age! I agree she doesn't look 81 or even 71. Those walks must be great for the skin *winks*
    I'm so glad you got your post back. Mine finally came back also without the comments, but not until after I'd already re-done my whole post! Oh well c'est la vie! Vanna


I love to receive your sweet and generous messages. You always make my day !
