If you know me even a little bit, you know how close I am with my Mom. She's one of my best buds and I feel ridiculously lucky to have the relationship with her that I do and that she's only an hour train ride away. A privilege that I abuse. Way too often. But there's also the kitchen. I can't stay away from that kitchen for too long. Or my little nugget, Molly.
But back to my Mom. Her Birthday was this past Sunday and her best friend, Donna, decided to throw a celebratory dinner for her. Donna is not only a famed textile designer but a phenomenal cook and hostess. No one ever turns down a night a meal at her place. No one. Ya hear?
You'll understand. Especially after you check out this spread.

I woke up the next morning at around 6:30am with a serious craving for leftover swordfish dipped in tzatziki and wrapped in warm, slightly charred pita. In fact, three days later and I'm still longing for a bite. Yet another incredible meal had at Donna's celebrating one of the most talented, inspiring, loving, and fabulous people I know. Mom, I love you and really, truly don't know what I'd do without ya. Here's to you.
