Mothers' Weekend

On Friday after work we headed to Saskatoon for the weekend.  We always plan to try new restaurants when we are in town visiting my mom, but we ended up eating at one of our favourites, Seoul, twice.

It is simply addictive.  They liked seeing us back there two days in a row.

We had a nice time visiting with my mom and bringing her new clothes, and all sorts of goodies, including homemade peanut butter cookies.

Lunch on Saturday was at Aroma in our hotel.  We shared the shrimp po boy, and the Montreal smoked meat sandwich.

We didn't order dessert, but our favourite day time server, Kelly brought us some anyway.  She's so sweet!

Breakfast on Sunday was at The Great Canadian Bagel Shop before visiting my mom again, and then hitting the road on our way home.

We stopped at Christopher's parent's house on the way back into town to give his mom some mothers' day gifts.  They had invited us for dinner, which is so nice, seeing as it was mothers' day and they shouldn't have worried about making food for us ... we're going to make it up to Christopher's lovely mother in a couple weeks with a belated mothers' day dinner at our place.

We had a great visit with them, while we enjoyed some snacks ...

Then we continued to catch up over dinner, which included lamb, meatballs, saffron rice, and veggies.

What a gorgeous looking plate of food!  It was delicious!  The lamb was so tender - I love the lamb chops; it's my favourite part of the lamb.

And if that wasn't enough yummy food, there was also a selection of desserts including cookies, a lime dessert cheese-ball, fruit, and strudel with custard - wow!

We're pretty lucky that we got to spend a lot of quality time with our moms on the weekend; it was wonderful.

How was your weekend?  What did you do?  Did you do anything special for mothers' day?

Wow, that was quite the Mother's Day meal! I can see why Christopher is such a foodie as it looks like his parents are as well!!

Since I am busy moving I wasn't able to go home to see my mom and grandma. :( But I did talk to both of them on the phone. That's great that you and Chris got to spend time with both of your moms!
