Happy Mother's Day Pink Saturday

When I walked past these windows on Friday I knew this would be our destination for Mother's Day and Pink Saturday. I loved the pretty in pink cake and I knew Citarella was a perfect place for a wonderful prepared meal. Eating out on Mother's Day is tough. It's so crowded and not the more lesisurely meal that we would like. But we can choose our treats at Citarella and head home to honor the mothers, grandmothers, aunts and godmothers in our lives.

The prettiest pretty in pink cake! I think the "Mom" cookies are pretty cute, too. 

We'll take a box of "Mom" cookies and the basket of chocolates, please. 

I think soft shell crabs would make a nice Mother's Day lunch. 

I hope you have a wonderful day. I'm thinking of my mother today -- too long gone, but always in my heart and thoughts -- and a shoutout to my beautiful goddaughter Jess and her mother K. Thanks for so many happy times!

I hope you will visit my 4 Ingredient giveaway for the opportunity to meet Kim McCosker and win her new book, "4 Ingredients Chocolates Cakes & Cute Things". Sweet, sweet treats!

As always, thanks for visiting. Take good care and have a sweet Mother's Day.

Thanks for sharing your observations and feelings-It doesn't seem that long ago that you and I were little girls in Hartford wanting to be "everything" for our Moms?

What a great store and I love the pink cake. You are so right about eating out on Mother's Day. We seldom do because of the crowds, but we did early this morning and every place was packed, so we came home and I cooked for all of us. Have a good day!

Oh Wow! that is quite a cake. I'm sure you have many good memories of your mom as I do too. We'll always have the close by, right in our hearts to stay.

Dear Carol, I had a lovely Mother's Day yesterday, thinking of my mom and the wonder of her and the way she continues--45 years after her death--to touch my life with goodness. Peace.

Pretty cake and soft shell crabs were one of my mom's favorites.
Blessings, Catherine

All those desserts look so yummy. We did our Mother's Day dinner today to avoid the crowds.
