I’ve heard that this movie is AMAZING! and it’s just been added to Netflix – so I’m hoping to watch it this weekend.
The babies have left the nest! If you've been following along - these are the baby birds from a nest built in the wreath on my front door about 3 weeks ago. All four made it, which is really unusual.

My Mother’s Kitchen: Food, Family, and the Meaning of Life by Peter Gathers ~GoodreadsA funny, moving memoir about a son's discovery that his mother has a genius for understanding the intimate connections between cooking, people and love
Peter Gethers wants to give his aging mother a very personal and perhaps final gift: a spectacular feast featuring all her favorite dishes. The problem is, although he was raised to love food and wine he doesn't really know how to cook. So he embarks upon an often hilarious and always touching culinary journey that will ultimately allow him to bring his mother's friends and loved ones to the table one last time.
This book sounds so poignant and lovely that I couldn’t resist. This copy was also signed so that was nice as well.
