HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all the moms out there (myself included)!
I took my mom out for dimsum in Chinatown on Saturday. We went to a new place that's across the street from Harmony Palace on Mott Street (i totally forgot to note the name of the restaurant). The dim sum was pretty good and very hot & fresh. I guess that's what you get for a place that just opened (as in Grand Opening).... so get there before things change. For my day, the hubs took me out for Japanese on Saturday evening.
In between brunch & dinner on Saturday, I took the time to make my Mother's Day Treat -- this week's SMS recipe -- Lemon Icebox Cake --- picked by Jennifer of Keep Passing the Open Windows. THANK YOU, Jennifer, cause this is another winner! Head over to her blog for the recipe. As always, be sure to check out the creations by my fellow-SMS Bakers.
I didnt have any strawberries on hand and it didnt dawn on me a few weeks ago to reserve some for the sauce, so I did without the strawberry sauce. I also made a 7" cake (half the recipe) because I think I'm the only one that's going to eat this one. Hubs isnt a lemon fan... and that's just too bad... cause this was delicious!
This was my first time making a meringue.
I used a 60mm macro lens for this shot --- dont you love the peaks?
