Mother's Day? What are you cooking?

Anyone planning on whipping up something special for dinner on Mother's Day?
Well my daughter's requested tempeh fajitas for Sunday so that's what's cooking for mother's day here. (She's off to Greece in two weeks to help close up an archaeological dig she's been involved with for the last five years.)
I'm throwing a turkey on the Weber Tomorrow, then reheating it for lunch on Sunday. I was going to do it Sunday morning, but weather looks better Saturday and I figure it should make Sunday morning much easier.
Decided to saute lightly floured pork tenderloin medallions (and finish with a pan sauce of white wine, cream, mustard, butter) & a spinach salad + rolls.
Cooking up reservations here

Happy Mother's day
And i wish peace to my brethren out there under stress trying to make it a good day.


My wife asked me to make my homemade pizza. A bit non-traditional but she correctly surmised that it was something all of the mothers in attendance would like. I was trying a variation on my usual cast-iron pan technique. I wasn't completely happy with the change but everybody enjoyed the meal.

Today we made/ordered a meal for two things; to help the local restaurant and honor my mothers potato salad.

It was delicious.

I want to admit that I am a bad cook, so I cook very rarely. My husband does it better than I do, moreover, he is fond of cooking and watches all sorts of cooking shows. Therefore, he is happy to receive a gift of some device for the kitchen. He said that the best gift he got from me was a good Japanese knife. I also recently bought this oil sprayer, which is very convenient to use in cooking. We often grill meat or fish with vegetables, which are even tastier thanks to this sprayer. Because thanks to this, the meat is fried evenly. I never thought that oil sprayer could affect the taste of food so much.
