I was a little quick to take the picture but there is my Mom coming down the escalator at the Halifax Airport. I am so excited that she is visiting, I really can’t believe she is here.
Having my Mom here means I can finally make seafood for someone other than myself, which I do rarely since I am a social eater and if left on my own I tend to live on sandwiches. I got a large bag of mussels for $4 which fed us both and I made the broth with dark beer!
Here is Mom getting ready to dig in and finish up with my bread. Already we have discussed food for hours and hours and hours. Too much fun! She is helping me expand my food repertoire by asking me to make, get this, steak and kidney pie! OMG, can I do it? So far I have had no luck finding the kidneys and I think I will make this next week after our weekend adventures.
The weather here is crazy cool out with lots of darkness and rain. My Mom is getting to see the crummy weather first-hand unfortunately. I really hope it brightens and gets warmer soon now that everything is so green. Regardless, we are having a blast in the kitchen (she is the supervisor) making classics like homemade pizza and mac & cheese. It is so wonderful to have family here with me to cook and bake for. She even liked my kiwi and green grape granita!
