Happy Mother's Day!

I hope everyone is had a great Mother's Day weekend. Mine has been pretty jam packed.

On Saturday, we had our family Mother's Day lunch. We took the "old ladies" to Benny's Seafood Restaruant. It's a Puerto Rican restaurant that was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.

It was a HUGE group of us at the restaurant, and thankfully our waitress was patient in dealing with all these crazy ladies.

We all dug into the typical Puerto Rican dishes, like the alcapurrias and mofongo. It was so delicious. Nothing better than fried pork and plantains!

Then on Sunday, I made dinner for Mom and Abuela (and Pop and Rich and Ang too). I used a few of the printables from Amanda's Parties To Go at the table.

Here's Mom waiting to dig in!

I made salad, turkey meatloaf, roasted asparagus, baked smashed potatoes and bread. It was super yummy. Grandma and Mom loved it and Rich really loved the potatoes.

And Mom brought a flan for dessert. I'm not really a fan of flan, but grandma is and everyone else has a little piece too.

It was a great weekend with Mom and Grandma. I hope all of you had a great weekend with your moms and showed them all the love.
