I'm having a lousy country club buffet at 4 pm... but it's all for mom.

I recommend my zucchini casserole for Mother's Day because it makes me think of eating this growing up...

Zucchini casserole - Mother's Day Special

It's a great starchy side.

I prepped everything yesterday so I would have a nice, lazy day today.

We're having rosemary-garlic rotisserie chicken, roasted Vidalia onions, green beans (canned from last summer's garden), orange-cranberry relish, homemade potato rolls with butter, iced tea and...ta da........strawberry shortcake.

All that has to be done is to put the chicken on the forks for the rotisserie. Aside from that, I plan on being a slug today!

We're having leftovers when ever anyone's hungry. I did breakfast (Goodweed's recipe for pancakes and sausage links) and will spend the day looking for my high school diploma that the new job wants a copy of before hiring me.
