Happy Mother's Day

This was an event that obviously took place a little while back, but since Emi has put the weight of the blog on my shoulders, I'll just have to write it. Emi and I have been traveling a little lately, so that is an excuse too.

We did enjoy a great meal that needed to be shared, so again apologize for how untimely this post is.

We stocked up at the Resident Cheesemonger on an assortment of cheeses to share with everyone and Salumi salami! If you ever need some good salami, we highly recommend checking our the Resident Cheesemonger and if you need to impress out of town guests pick up some Salumi salami because a) it's difficult to find with their strange store hours down in Pioneer Square b)It's Mario Batali's family c)it tastes great!

Emi added some sea salt to the butter which we enjoyed with a fresh loaf of bread. So simple, butter and sea salt, yet amazing.

My aunt made a delicious Greek salad for all of us. Emi wanted a Mediterranean theme for our dinner since all of us are going on our cruise soon.

Emi's dad made spanikopita. I love anything with phylo dough.

Here are the Greek lamb kebabs I made, Emi posted the recipe for our recipe of the week a little while back if you're interested in making them.

We also celebrated the start of my new job, so toasted with a bottle of Moet and Chandon that Emi's parents bought for us when we got engaged. I know you aren't supposed to store champagne for a long time, but we were waiting for an event to celebrate, so out it came for everyone to enjoy.

My aunt and uncle brought over some delicious soft and fun flavored macaroons. With all of our talk about Paris, they wanted to share some macaroons with us and told us where to go in Paris to get the real deal. After having them for the first time in Singapore, we've been obsessed.

Emi's Okinawan Sweet Potato Cupcakes with her cream cheese frosting, that was requested by her mom.

The next time all of us will get together for a group photo it will be around our table on our Mediterranean Cruise!!

Happy belated Mother's Day to all of the mothers out there and we hope you enjoyed a great meal to celebrate your day.
