Hi there! I know I’ve been silent for a couple of weeks. In spite of my hope to post weekly, I got thrown off by mother’s day. So I resolved to post the week after. Missing one day wouldn’t be as bad as missing two. But as luck would have it, my computer started acting up. I didn’t know what was happening but my touch screen mouse wouldn’t stay in one spot. In a panic, I brought it to Geek Squad who took ten minutes to fix the problem. All they had to do was deactivate my touch screen. What a relief. I was terrified I would have to replace my computer. An expense I couldn’t afford. Anyhow, I am back. Now I can tell you about my mother’s day and the wonderful things my daughter and husband did.
My eldest surprised me in the best way possible. When I was a kid my family used to have lamb cake for Easter. I grew up in the Chicagoland area. Lamb cake is plentiful there. When I moved to Oklahoma I couldn’t find lamb cake anywhere. I couldn’t understand this because Oklahoma has a huge Catholic population and I thought lamb cake was a Catholic tradition. I found bunny cakes and egg cakes but no lamb cake. As it turns out, lamb cake is a polish catholic tradition. There is a large polish community in Chicago. That explains why I can’t find it in Oklahoma and why most people here don’t know what it is.
So this Easter I decided I would find a lamb cake mold and with the baking talents of my eldest, make a lamb cake. But I couldn’t find a lamb cake mold anywhere and it was too late to order it online. So there was no lamb cake for Easter. But that’s where the mother’s day surprise comes in. My daughter didn’t give up. She ordered the mold and on mother’s day I had my very first lamb cake in years. It tasted just like a remembered. Below is the picture of the cake.
But the festivities didn’t end there. My husband knows that my favorite thing to do is watch a movie in the Warren Theater Balcony. There’s nothing more fun than drinking a Movie Mogul and eating a grilled cheese with fries while cinematic magic happens before my eyes. My husband took us to see Captain America: Civil War in the balcony. Best mother’s day movie ever! I hope everyone’s mother’s day was a pleasant one. Next time my post will be on a more current topic.
That’s all I have for now. Thank you for reading my post.
