Mother´s Day Celebration 2012

It is my third Mother´s Day celebration here in Germany.  We usually spent them at home instead of heading to a restaurant so that we could attend to other things inbetween the coffee time and dinner time.

I baked a New York Rasberry Cheesecake from Ina Garten.  It was delicious and was dutily polished off in minutes.  Moist, tasty and served chill ... hubby requested for a rebake when we get back from Belgium next week. 

Mama had the kitchen´s dining table all decked out with fine tableware.  She also surprised us with a bottle of Strawberry Secco / bubbly before we start our coffee session.  As you can see, it is a joyous occassion hence both mum and son wearing RED ... the colour of passion :-)

This is the reason for this entry.  Hubby painted this pot!  It was after one of mama´s cup with beautiful Holland landscape.  Needless to say, Mama was impressed with hubby´s work! I was too! Imagine coming up with something close to what the original artist could in less than an hour?!
