Mother’s Day

I’m usually not one of those people who gets too excited about Mother’s Day or Father’s Day, but on Sunday we met up with Mandy and her boyfriend M. and his parents. We went to a fabulous restaurant in Manchester, New Hampshire called Fratellos.

The food was delicious and while we ate, we talked and talked. It was warm and friendly and I felt like I had known M’s parents for a very long time.

And here are the gentleman.

What you see in the picture above were the appetizers. They were awesome! An Antipasto, and Bruschetta with a side order of Calamari, that was cooked just right!

Soon our meals arrived. M. and his Dad had the Prime Rib, while Hubby had the Seafood Fra Diavolo. M.’s Mom had salmon, Mandy had Stuffed Haddock and I had Lobster Ravioli!

Doesn’t this look wonderful!

We talked and talked and soon the hostess came over and gently reminded us that they needed to prepare our table for the next seating. So reluctantly we said good-bye.

I hugged my daughter, this beautiful woman who made me a mother, and thanked my lucky stars. She is someone I would want to know, even if she wasn’t my daughter.

My Mother’s Day was complete, and I thank Mandy and M. once again for such a wonderful afternoon!

  2. How wonderful, you certainly had a great day ! We went to the restaurant too and I got a beautiful ceramic cat and two red roses in a special little basket. Was also very happy ! Marieken’s mother tours through France by bike (!!!) and does camping, with this weather ! Crazy ! It’s not because of money, but she likes to be sportive !

  3. What a lovely Mother’s Day! 🙂 I am glad you had such a great time with great company and delicious food!

  4. Those are some darling pictures of you and Mandy! The others are fun too! M sure looks like his dad! The food looks absolutely fabulous – sinfully delicious, I suspect! 🙂 All the makings of a fabulous Mother’s Day!

  5. Sounds like the perfect day to me.
    I had my mother over for lunch at our place and we had a great day too.
    The food turned out great and the weather was beautiful so we could sit outside.
