The week kinda got away from me. I had things going on that were beyond my control. Then all of a sudden, here we are…another Friday is upon us.
Fortunately, this is a special weekend for all mothers. And that includes me. Happy early Mother’s Day to all moms! And you know what that means? It means I’m not expected to do anything, but rather things will be done for me.
Which is a refreshing change in this house! And I’m looking forward to it!
I wonder what’s in store for me. The kids and their dad do sometimes concoct pretty nice surprises.
I just hope it’ll include food and massage, my two most favorite things in the world! I’ll let you know how it’ll go.
P.S. No cohosts this week, folks, since I didn’t even have the chance to set that up. Remember…the week got away from me… So I’ll set up the voting thing, and you know what to do, right? And then if you want to cohost for the weeks ahead, just holler, okay? Would really appreciate it!
Swedish Sandwich Cake (Smörgåstårta) from Julianna @ Foodie on Board
“Have you seen anything like it?! Isn’t it the most incredible thing you’ve ever seen EVER?! It is for me!” — Angie
Quinoa Walnut Salad with Wasabi Dressing from Zeba @ Food For The Soul
“There is nothing I don’t like about this salad, it’s a beautiful combination of flavours and textures, and the wasabi and truffle dressing is just perfect – it would make a great addition to a BBQ party menu!” — Monika
Homemade Mayonnaise from Jhuls @ The Not So Creative Cook
“Who would have thought making your own mayonnaise was so easy – it’s healthier and fresher than any store-bought mayonnaise, and I am going to try Jhuls’ brilliant recipe this weekend!”– Monika
Lemon Blueberry Cake from Sarah @ Sarah’s Little Kitchen
“Lemon and blueberries go so well together. I love this cake. It looks beautiful and delicious!” — Sue

I’m so glad you featured Juliannas ‘cake’, it was so pretty and such an inspiration!
Enjoy your Mother’s Day xx
Yup! I think I know what to bring to my next potluck party. I might even make a smaller version for the family. Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day Ladies! I enjoy seeing the creations made by you every week. I guess I will still be cooking this weekend.
Thanks! But you’re a great cook and enjoy doing it, so it’d be a piece of cake. Are you making a cake? ?
Hi Angie! That Swedish sandwich does look amazing. Have a fabulous Mother’s Day Weekend, I hope you get your 2 favourite things:) Mother’s Day was last month in this country so my weekend will be pretty ordinary.
Thanks! I’ll take an ordinary weekend anytime! Ordinary = no drama. No drama = relaxing ? ??
Monika, thanks for choosing my mayonnaise for the feature. ?
You are welcome!
Happy Mother’s Day Angie and all my friends over here..
I hope you are going to have a really good one with your loved ones..Njoy..:)
Thanks, Nimmi! And I hope you’re enjoying your week, too! ??
Hi Angie, know how you feel I feel like every week time is slipping away. Happy Mothers Day hoping you have a great day!!
So many things going on, Suzanne! Can’t wait until I retire, lol. But then I’d probably be bored to death, who knows. Have a wonderful Mother’s Day!! ??
Zeba@Food For The Soul says
I have been traveling for work most of the week and quite exhausted. Hope the mother’s day excuse will help me put my feet up 🙂 have a wonderful day all and thanks for the feature <3
Perfect day tomorrow to relax, Zeba. Be queen for the day, or everyday ?Love your salad! ?
Hi there, I’ve missed a couple weeks as time seems to have flown away from me somehow…I keep getting to part way through the week and realize I haven’t joined. Late today but at least I got here! Hope you have a lovely mother’s day. For once there’s actually talk of doing something in this house – I think my comments of at least making an effort so the kids aren’t as bad as my husband might have sunk in!
That happens, especially when you have little ones. Completely understandable. And good for you for fighting for your rights as a mom, haha ? We should at least get breakfast in bed, and in your case maybe time alone??? Enjoy your special day tomorrow! ?
Julia Baurain says
That Swedish sandwich cake is amazing! I’m following a floral theme this week too! I brought a savory egg tart with bacon and veggie rosettes!
Bacon and veggie rosettes?! Sound incredible!! Will have to check them out!
Don’t you wish it’s Mother’s Day everyday?? ? Happy Mother’s Day, Angie! I wish you enjoy your day with your family.?
About the co-hosting, you can set me up anytime.??
And oh, thanks for featuring my mayonnaise ?
I do! It should be Mothers Day everyday! ? Okay, I’ll let you know when I’ll be needing you to cohost. Thanks, Jhuls! Homemade mayo is something I should be doing on a weekly basis considering how much I use it! ?
Ai @Ai made it for you says
Happy Mother’s Day, Angie! Hope you get pampered and treated like the fiesta queen that you are? I’m up for cohosting once it’s June!! Until then, I’ll be busy writing report cards?haha.
I hope so, too, Ai! I deserve it ? Okay, June sounds good, I’ll mark it on my calendar right now? Just give them all As, lol. You have an excuse, you’re busy planning for a wedding ?
Aaawww thanks so much for featuring my recipe 😀 I can’t wait to find out what they planned for you, Angie! I do hope it involves at least food and masage 😉
My pleasure, it’s a wonderful cake! And yah, me, too, I can’t wait to find out what’s in store for me tomorrow ?
I love the features this week Angie! I hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day!
I did, Antonia, thanks! I hope you enjoyed yours!
Thanks, it was nice!

Hope you had a great Mother’s Day Angie. Love all the features! If you need a co-host and there is no one else, feel free to let me know.:)
Thanks, Su! I had a wonderful day, I hope you did, too. And I will let you know about the cohosting. I need to check with a few friends first.
