Annual Mother’s Day Post

I hope you have an enjoyable Mother’s Day whether you are being celebrated or celebrating.  Whether it’s Brunch, dinner, family picnic or just a few “treats”, it’s important to celebrate.  Holidays and celebrations will continue to happen, but the more of them we get through, the more prepared we are for the next one.

It’s probably way more socially acceptable (or should I say “kosher”) to serve brisket and kugel for Easter than it would be to serve Ham for Passover, so that’s the plan.
