Mother’s Day Dinner

My poor mom was feeling a bit under the weather this Mother’s Day (All thanks to her sick daughter aka me…worst daughter ever!). So, we had a low-key day and I tried my best to make it up to her. Because she totally deserves it! I don’t know where or who I would be without my mom. She means the world to me.

We are kind of obsessed with Gwyneth Paltrow in this family (major girl crush) and my mom didn’t have her new cookbook yet, so I knew that would be a perfect gift for her. That was part of my present to her as well as letting her pick whatever she wanted out of the cookbook for me to make her for dinner.

She picked out a cold cucumber avocado soup that was so refreshing and the most delicious chicken lettuce wraps I have tasted. Gwyneth’s recipes are very delicious (we also tried out more recipes of hers here)! I totally recommend picking up this cookbook. And I can’t wait to try many more of her recipes!

Here are a few pictures from our Mother’s Day (Sorry for no people pictures…she wouldn’t let me take any of her! Since she wasn’t feeling well and she stayed in her pajamas all day, I let it slide.)
