Today, in honour of Mothers Day, my siblings and I (and our various partners) converged on my parents' house to cook brunch for my lovely Mum. Well, I say we cooked, but truly all the cooking was done by my sister R, the culinary genius - seriously, she was up at 6am preparing an absolute feast! At least my brother and I did the washing-up
We came bearing gifts - a huge bunch of pink garden roses
A veritable army of breakfast trifles! These little beauties consisted of layers of fresh mixed berries, greek yoghurt, honey and freshly made toasted granola
Nommy fruit platter - there were also pancakes and various other delicious morsels which I failed to capture *facepalm*
Mothers Day means LOTS of flowers!
Mmmmmm these were beyond amazing!
Soft-boiled egg on rye toast, with avocado and roasted tomato
'Twas cold this morning! I dressed accordingly
In the afternoon, V and I took a drive down the coast - a spot of surfing for him, a spot of reading for me, followed by a wander together...
I spy - a kitteh!
'Twas quite warm by this stage! Accordingly, I lost the stockings and boots
Feeling surprisingly ready for lunch, we ducked into the Minnamurra General Store
Ohhhhhh the homemade goodies!
Freshly squeezed orange, apple and mint juice
Beer-battered flathead, cooked to perfection, crispy chips and green salad - seriously, I have no idea how I was even hungry after the breakfast feast to end all feasts, but I still managed to nom my way all this deliciousness
To all the Mums out there - hope you had a truly special day today!
