another special Mothers day
As the children are growing up, they are become more aware of these special occasions that mark the calender year, and how I, their Mum, treasures each event as a celebration of being here with each other, actually, I like to celebrate everything, it doesnt matter where I am, and I love to spend time with family and friends. Life is too precious not to celebrate everything.
On this years Mothers day, we were invited to join our Norfolk family for lunch by Bernie and Mary who had booked the homestead restaurant near 100 acres, this happens to be one on our favourite restaurants on Norfolk too.
If you come here, Homestead is a must! The food and service is 5 star, classy and friendly at the same time, while the children are served first thing and eat all the delicious salad and fruit on their plates, they use their linen and lace napkins, then can roam the safe gardens or play with lego on the floor!
It was a very special Mothers day for Kim, as it was her first, so it was fitting that I took some monochrome photos of her and baby Liam, now 8 weeks, as Kim loves Black and white and browns, compared to me, I Love COLOUR, usually the brighter the better.
But, back to the food! I love these garlic prawns served with little handmade potato scallops, they are fantastic, but Brandt and I always have to save room for a CHOCOLATE BOMBE.
They are sooooo good, I dont know if it is the combination of cold icecream, cake and chocolate merangue flamed at the table, but I do know that I always asked for its similar sister dessert, the baked alaska for all my childhood birthdays growing up.
This time though, I chose something different, a handmade tartufo, handmade icecream with a honey and macadamia gooey centre and coated in dark chocolate,YUM.
also pictured is Kims berry crumble, it also looks delicious.
It was a lovely day, finished off by watching Brandt play Rugby in the Golden oldies for the Norfolk team, the creaky convicts, vs a New Zealand team, the Dannvirke derelicts on one of the most picturesque playing fiels in the world, right by the old convict ruins, among the restored Historic georgian buildings, and looking over the coral reef towards the magnificent Philip Is.
I will have to include the photos next time.
In the meantime, enjoy your families, stay safe and happy and we hope you can join us at the Homestead for lunch sometime, or we will just have to enjoy it for you.
