mother’s day: english breakfast in bed and more goodies for mom!


This was taken at Coachalla just a few weeks ago.



Most of these photos were taken when Bear was about six months old and he was chewing on everything as you can see in the top left photo with the tooth brush in his mouth and the bottom with the tv remote. The most recent picture is the top middle where Bear is chewing on an icicle, taken about two months ago when he was ten months old.

Of course, I have my mom to thank for imparting her kind values to me at an early age, with her love of animals and her eco-conscious habits (see my post about how she squeezes the last drop out of every beauty product…go Mom!). My mom is also the inspiration for the English brunch recipe on page 198 in The Kind Diet.

Get the recipe here and make your mom breakfast in bed this year!
