Because of conflicting work schedules, my family decided to celebrate Mother's Day today so we could all be together. My sister Danette made a lovely diet-friendly English-style tea, complete with low cal versions of classic recipes like berry scones and quiche. She also served salmon and cucumber sandwiches, fresh fruit, juice and any kind of tea our hearts desired. For dessert, we enjoyed scoops of butter pecan ice cream and pirouette cookies. As you will see, her decorating style is more mid-century than mine, with bright happy colours perfect for a warm spring afternoon. What is everyone else doing to celebrate Mother's Day?
