5/11/2019 - Mother's Day Eve Dinner

We were planning to go to daughter and SIL's tomorrow, and planning to take dinner. As today turned out to be a wonderful late spring day, and tomorrow's forecast doesn't look too good, she called us early afternoon and suggested we come over today. I took over burger fixings, Bush's Grillin Beans, and cole slaw - everything you need for a weekend grill dinner. Great way to kick off the summer.

Today was a busy day inside and outside the house. I spent most of the day prepping for tomorrow's visit from SO's daughter and granddaughter. So we defrosted some spanakopita for tonight's dinner.

We went to our favourite Chinese resto. It's a hole in the wall, very authentic place. We went with friends and shared a bunch of great dishes.

I picked up a rotisserie pigeon today when I made a produce-and-ice cream run. Looks like we have more soup weather ahead (rain and temps in the 40s) and I want to make one last (I hope) pot of cream of chicken/wild rice soup. It was a bigger pigeon, so we picked some of the meat off the bones for supper tonight. Sides were baby peas and nuked potatoes - mine with just butter, Himself's with butter and sour cream.

Dessert was more strawberry shortcake. I love strawberries, and these have been pretty good so far this year. I can eat them until I break out in hives - been there, done that, but not for decades.

Last night we had burgers made with bagels. While they were really good and held together well, that's just too much bread for me. For dessert we had strawberry shortcake. I didn't have any Bisquick so I found a recipe of shortcake for two and whipped cream from TJ's shelf stable heavy cream. We were overloaded with carbs and suffered like groaning dogs most of the night. Today we are fasting.

Hope you feel better today.

I have some of that cream. Can you post the recipe for the shortcakes please. TIA Kay.

MsM, I was pleasantly surprised how nicely that TJ shelf stable cream whipped up. I chilled it well, along with the bowl and whisk. Here's the recipe for the shortcake and I used my little one cup food processor that came with my stick blender. I also used the whisk attachment for the cream.
