A day after we posted about Momo wine, our mom received an email
from M, a good friend of hers.
M said while she was travelling in New Zealand, she saw Momo wine by surprise
and mailed it to us! Then she read our Momo wine post.
M, it doesn't matter what we already tried.... we really appreciate your thought.
Ten days had passed, the package arrived safe!
"I am gonna open it!"
"I have pawfect K9. Let me tear up the package!!"
Eventually we helped each other to open the package.
MOMO... you, you are special.
You travelled miles miles away from the other of the globe by yourself!
(Momo) "Mom, I know what you're thinking but we have to keep this bottle unopened for a little while."
"It's so kind of you, M. Thank you very much!"
Momo wine was sold for limited time only so we can't get them anymore.
We wonder if this bottle is the only one in Ontario.
****** To all moms!!!******
"Happy Moms' Day!"
Obviously this is our late post. These pics were all taken on May 9th. :D :D
Our brudder's showed us his Moms' Day craft that he made at daycare.
This was very special to our mom so here's the picture.
(Momo) "Mmm....It's a raspberry chocolate cake. That means we won't get much."
Dad helped us to pick up pressies for mom.
First of all... mom, you love Cup Noodles so we got you a
Noodle Cup! It's reusable! Very green!
Secondly, we have to give you TWO Woof Woof, two big barks.
One of them is Expresso Crunch Bark which keeps you going through the day!!
And here's our favorite one- Dog Bag!
It has citrus scent and it's your favourite colour, PINK but
they are degradable so it's very green!
Picking up our poop is fabulous job from now on!
Let's have some cake!
"Why did I have to wait for 21 months to have my first chocolate cake?"
Mom carefully cut a cake. There was no chocolate cream but we definitely smelled raspberries.
In the evening, dad fired up the BBQ.
Another pressi that we picked up for mom is Jamie's Food Revolution.
(To our new friends, our pawrents used to watch Food Network all the time and
Jamie Oliver is one of their favourite chefs. They even went to see him at his autograph session.
Link is here.)
This book inspired mom instantly and she wanted to try one of his recipes, dressed asparagus.
It looks like this book inspired our brudder, too.
We look forward to your future, brudder!
Dad has made many yummy dishes but this Scallops dish was another huge hit.
He often mentions 'Simplest The best (in cooking) and feel the flavour!
But he challenged something different.
He ordered grilled scallops with cheese at the greek restaurant a few days earlier and it was
good so he wanted to make his version.
He decided to make baby Parmesan and Bocconcini crostini first then placed huge scallops and
Gorgonzola on top. These were cooked in the regular oven in the kitchen.
(Top: L to R) Sauteed King Mushroom with hint of sea salt (ahhh YUM!),
Scallops on crostini, grilled prawns, mom's Asparagus & carrots dish
(Bottom: L to R) Grilled yellow and red peppers, little red potato, onion and garlic
that cooked in the Big Green Egg for TWO!
"Mom, don't you forget something?"
Thank you dad to help us to make our mom smile!!
