My 15 yo son bought a ham, frozen corn, fresh broccoli (with cheese) bakery rolls and a cheesecake and made a scrumptious dinner for me last night for Mother's Day! We had the dinner last night because today,.. we are on a road trip to see my other son in college. Since my older son is taking us all out to eat for Mother's day, my youngest wanted to suprise me with a "homemade dinner"!! How sweet is that!
