And then there was Sunday dinner. Mom made ribs, mashed potatoes and broccoli. She's right, the ribs do taste better on day 2 than they do on day one, but they're pretty nummy on day one, so who's gonna argue?
For dessert, mom made a mixed berry cobbler. We're big on dessert around here, in case you hadn't noticed. My crazy love for baking and baked goods? I blame entirely on mom and her fabulous cakes, pies, cobblers, date squares, etc. Did I mention she even makes wedding cakes and made mine and my sister Cindy's? Yeah, she's got mad skilz!
The thing in the back that looks like a dragon's egg is actually breadfruit. You bake it for half of forever and it turns brown and begins to taste quite bread-like. Fortunately once cooked, it can be frozen and await the remainder of your family's arrival for the next round of ackee and saltfish for breakfast.
The finished cobbler. Mmm! Most excellent with vanilla ice cream. What? Like you think we eat cobblers and pies without ice cream? What are you a barbarian?!
Oh, and she made a pair of apple pies on Friday, too, but since dad isn't here to eat an entire one himself, we still have most of the second one.
You can tell she loves me by the little heart cutouts.
You know, having a fridge filled with leftover dessert is wonderful! Wheee!
