This morning I was awoken by my 15 year old son with breakfast in bed, made by him. He also surprised me with a really cute Mother's Day card, beautiful flowers, a ceramic cupcake trinket box and a heart printed 'Tea For One' Teapot & Mug. Hubby reminded me that today was Mother's Day and I was to do nothing but sit back, relax and enjoy. I have to say this task sounds easier said than done, (especially when your a full-time domestic goddess, mother and wife) I kept going to do things and being told off as I am "not supposed to do anything today!" My son and hubby are cooking a Sunday roast for dinner, and as much as I wanted to stick with the rules of not lifting a finger, my love of baking took over and I had to at least make dessert. I decided to make something quick and easy and made one of Delia's cheat recipes from her new book. I opted for a Chocolate Tart, on which I was a little heavy-handed with the cocoa dusting :o) oh well! I am sure it's going to taste delish with it's all-butter pastry and chocolate truffle filling, served along-side crème fraîche and blackberries.
Happy Mother's Day to all you "yummy mummies"
