Nothing like showing up to write about Mother’s Day three days after the fact, eh? I spent the morning on Sunday cleaning my apartment. Well, a mixture of actually cleaning, and just plain hiding the mess. Anyways, I was getting it in shape for company because on a whim on Friday, I invited my mom, her husband and my brother over for lunch. It should be noted that when I decided to do that, there were at least 8 boxes on my living room floor, and the contents of several shelves strewn about. Not the best planning, but oh well! I got it all put away before my guests arrived.
My brother ended up not coming because he woke up feeling sick and thought that the smell/sight of food might make him ill again. It was too bad because he’d never been to my apartment before, but hey, we ended up with leftovers. I made White Chicken Parmesan, which my friend Colleen was kind of enough to get me the recipe for. I was really nervous about making it because I’d never cooked raw chicken before. Actually, I should admit that I’d never even cooked spaghetti noodles before!! Hey, that’s why I have a Learning To Cook category because I’m, well, learning!
I should say that the dinner turned out wonderful! It was very good, and everyone liked it. My mom even asked for the recipe because she said it was definitely something to be made again. Yay! Pat on the back for me! I was just glad it turned out! I still haven’t given my mom her mother’s day gift though. I had part of it on Sunday, but I wanted to get the rest of it before I gave it to her. I was going to get that handled today, but certain things are not behaving well. I’ll have to worry about that when I get home I guess… after all of the anticipation, I sure hope she likes it!!
