Happy Mother's Day!!

My day started with "Berry Good Baked French Toast"

1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups milk
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 eggs
10 slices French bread, 1 inch thick, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 cup fresh or frozen (thawed) blueberries or Saskatoon's if you are so lucky to have them!
1/2 cup chopped nuts
Powdered sugar, if desired
Blueberry or maple syrup, if desired

1. Generously grease 2 1/2-quart casserole or rectangular baking dish, 13x9x2 inches. Beat flour, milk, sugar, vanilla, salt and eggs in large bowl with hand beater until smooth. Stir in bread cubes until coated.
2. Pour bread mixture into casserole. Top evenly with cream cheese, blueberries and nuts. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour but no longer than 24 hours.
3. Heat oven to 400°F. Uncover and bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve with syrup and powdered sugar.

The girls did a clean up and did some dusting
before CD went for a nap. CJ planned a "Home Spa" for us to enjoy. I enjoyed a bath with the bath salt she made at school. As per CJ's request Moto-Moto gave us a foot scrub and paint our toes and fingernails. We were served Green Tea Gingerale in our fancy glasses and enjoyed a little snack.

Then we packed up the van, stopped here to pick up ... not Mama burgers but UNCLE Burgers!

(Two very hungry and excited girls!!)

And drove out to Beaver Creek for the afternoon. We did some hiking and decided that for our next trip we should try to find a baby backpack for CD. It's hard hiking around with a little one who is still working on walking.

Later at home we enjoyed a yummy supper prepared by Moto-Moto of ...

Rosemary Pork Tenderloin
Dill-Honey Glazed Carrots
Spinach Salad with Avacado, Blueberries and Blackberries with Poppy Seed Dressing
French Loaf with Pesto

Yummy!! It was a great day with my family!
Thanks guys!

I think that looks like a fine Mother's Day! Glad it was a happy one... the girls looked especially excited about A&W! Are the Uncle Burgers good? I always go with the Mama, especially when they are on sale.
