It was a beautiful weekend and I enjoyed a peaceful Mother’s Day. I took a salad and a dessert to my in-laws house for brunch. I wanted the dessert to be special because it was my mother-in-law’s first Mother’s Day without her youngest son. It’s the holidays that are often the worst when you lose someone, isn’t it?
I decided to make a trifle and made the entire dish from scratch using a recipe that I found on Pinterest. My mother-in-law asked me what alcohol I used for it and I said, “What? There’s supposed to be alcohol?!!” I had no idea. But I think everyone enjoyed the first-ever non-alcoholic trifle.
I took a picture of it before we left for NJ.
It was a bit time-consuming, but entirely worth it for a special occasion. The custard was surprisingly easy to make.
After brunch, we came home to Maryland and I tried to get some pictures of the bluebirds who have nests in nearly every box we have along the fence line.
It was a good day.
Until tomorrow, my friends ~
