Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day

As a young girl I recall Mother's Day preparations in our home were as exciting as Christmas.

 Our Dad taught us it was important to value our Mother especially on Mother's Day.

On Mother's Day we gave her hand-made cards, bouquets of flowers from our yard or the nearby field and creek.  And the only time (then) I recall our Dad cooking was to help us four daughters make Eggs A La Goldenrod for our mother and serve it to her in bed on a tray with our gathered flowers.  

We never had 'fancy' food and back then I thought Eggs A La Goldenrod was the fanciest food I had ever seen.  I'll post the recipe below - you will see it is an easy peasy recipe, but as a young girl from a very simple home, this dish represented something very special, a place of honor and love.

We celebrated our mother's homecoming to our Lord in 2006.  I miss her dearly, but know she is healed and at home with God.  That brings me great joy!

Egg A La Goldenrod Recipe:

1 stick butter
2 tbsp. flour
2 c. milk
6 eggs
6 slices toast
Melt butter and make paste with flour; add milk little at a time. Cook over medium heat until thick. Boil, peel, and separate eggs. Chop whites and add to sauce. Pour sauce mixture over toast. Press yolks through sieve and sprinkle over sauce. Garnish with parsley or orange slices. Serve hot. Pretty as well as good. May use 1 cup beef browned and drained instead of egg whites.
don't forget to add salt, pepper & paprika to taste 

Whether you are a mother or with respect to your own mother...
Happiest of Mother's Day to you!
