Happy Mother’s Day to all you mothers, grandmothers, and aunties out there! Hope your day is full of relaxation and happiness.
This weekend, my boyfriend, sis, her boyfriend, and I cooked dinner for my family, as we celebrated Mother’s Day last night. We made ground turkey pot pies, cornbreads, and strawberry butter. Yum!
I’ve made chicken pot pies from this recipe in the past, but we’ve altered the recipe last night. We used ground turkey, sweet potatoes, Okinawan sweet potatoes, and frozen mixed vegetables for the pie filling. It was very good. We used a lot of potatoes, which helped sweeten the flavor. It didn’t need much seasoning, like salt. The potatoes’ sweetness was a perfect substitute.
Next, we made strawberry butter and two different types of cornbread to pair with the pot pies.
We whipped a block of unsalted butter and strawberries to make the butter.
My cousin, who couldn’t make it last night, made my late auntie’s famous pound cake. O.M.Gosh! It was awesome! Tasted exactly like hers. He’s got her baking touch/gift! Yea!
Today, we had our Mother’s Day luncheon with my boyfriend and his family at his mom’s favorite restaurant, Palazzo!
