Food and Music seem to be how I express love best. So today I made mom some tasty things:
We had a brunch of:
An heirloom caprese tomato salad. The heirloom tomatoes looked gorgeous at the store.
This salad is simple. On a small bed of mixed greens layer slices of heirloom tomato (sprinkled with salt and pepper), fresh mozzarella slices, then drizzle with a little pesto and balsamic glaze.
I also got a wheel of prepared shrimp cocktail (because I know mom loves shrimp)
and made deviled eggs (I mix my filling with mayonnaise, a little stone ground mustard, garlic powder, salt, smoked paprika... then I sprinkle them with some tajin seasoning).
I also had pomegranate mimosas (juice + moscotto)
Then we took naps lol.
For dinner I made:
Manacotti stuffed with a spinach and artichoke ricotta mixture and a marinara with mushrooms, onions, garlic and italian sausage topped with Italian cheeses. Served with one of my favorite zinfandels.
It wasn't very pretty but it sure was tasty!
