Thankful Tuesdays: Mother's Day

The hubby isn't the type that celebrates occasions.  For Mother's day, he even asked me what I wanted to do!  But we did have a nice Sunday lunch after church at this little place called "Royals and Rice" which served Vietnamese food.  Their Vietnamese turned out to be more Asian than anything, but I was glad to have clear beef soup and fried wantons for a change.  Anything is probably better than German food, which we've concluded isn't anything to shout about!   

The eatery had comfy sofas, and a rather nice view of the church next to it:

And the mango pannacotta was decent.

And at night, the hubby declared he would do the cooking and washing up for a change.  (These days I have been cooking everyday since eating out isn't cheap.  W usually only eat out for Sunday lunches and sometimes Saturday lunches, so not having to stand at a stove/sink was quite a nice change.)  So I hung around with the kids and read to them, while he pottered in the kitchen and came up with this:

It turned out pretty good, and he cooked everything without referring to any recipes... save for the rhubarb sauce which I had stewed up the day before:

I really love the seasonal veggies here!

All in all, quite a pleasant way to spend the day with family.  But of course, what I'm most thankful for would be having the opportunity to just spend time with those 3 boys of mine!

I hope all you mothers out there had a blessed Mother's Day.  What are you thankful for this week?

  2. My hubby also isn't the romantic kind that will put too much thoughts into celebrating special occasions.. so I was very touched this year. But your hubby seems like a good cook :) I love all the pics in this post too!
