Fabulous Mother's Day Meal

Some days are just more fabulous than others....and this Mother's Day....really the entire weekend....was one of the best.  The weather did fun things to do and some down time.  But, I really think it ranked right up there with the best days.

The day was perfect weather-wise....and I was able to get a grocery store run in early.  Then, we split up and did a family tri with Paul cycling (he went 82 miles!!!), Eleanor at swim practice, and me running.  We saw my parents, we saw some friends, planted a garden, and finished the day with this awesome meal.

Paul wasn't looking too happy about the thought of a chicken burger, bur preventionrd had a great one.  In fact, if a speech bubble came out of his head it would have said,  "I want a real(beef) burger".  But, hey, it was Mother's Day, and I did the grocery shopping, so I guess it's my way:)  Glad that we had these because they were really good and will appear on our menu again.

Buffalo chicken burgers, roasted green beans, grilled sweet potatoes, and lemon squares for dessert.
