Out of order – May 13, 2012 – Mother’s Day

I was looking over my recent blog entries and it occurred to me that I had never posted about Mother’s Day or Memorial Day.

I have a really nice Mother’s Day. Sarah sleeps over and bakes two of my favorite things. For breakfast, Sarah makes pretzel rolls. Whenever I am in Germany, they are my most favorite bread to eat. She has posted the recipe here. Even though this is the first time she had made them, they come out really delicious and very authentic.

Here is a perfect Mother’s Day morning for me – a cup of tea, yellow roses from John, a pretzel roll and a puzzle.


Sarah also makes her fabulous snickerdoodle cookies. The secret to the recipe? Be sure to include plenty of salt!

Ryan, Jonathan, Nathan and Sam come over as well. Nathan made me a beautiful Mother’s Day crown and there are cards and hugs and all the things I like best. Thank you to the family for a super day.
