Happy Mother's Day to all y'all who celebrate such things.
We don't, usually, but Dr. Skull hasn't cooked a splendid meal (one of his favorite things to do) in a long time, so we're celebrating this year.
- Champagne Salmon
- Potatoes Dauphinoise
- Broccoli some fancy way
- Sourdough bread (from his own sour, of course)
- Lime ice cream
The lime ice cream has been a sore trial. Dr. Skull made it for my very first mother's day, when the Kid was like six days old, and never again since. (It requires juicing tons of limes, which without a juicer is a struggle.) Also, this is Oh My God There Are Ants Everywhere! season in Arkansas, so when he poured the sugar into the measuring cup it was mostly ants. Also he had to make an emergency four a.m. run for cream, since the sort we had on hand was deeply inferior.
Dinner is at five, however, and everything is currently under control.
