Throw Mamma from the Tower!
It’s the one day out of the year for the family matriarch with kids — from babies to grownups — to be treated like royalty by her offspring.
Breakfast in bed, soggy cornflakes or soufflé; its the thought that counts.
The house spic-‘n’-span, by someone else, and ready for your white-glove inspection.
Maybe dinner and a movie ’cause you’ve been fab 24/7/365.
Regardless of how it turns out on your day-of-days, Happy Mother’s Day to you.
Together with my nephew and grandniece, F and A, we treated a few mammas just right today, too: a delicious lunch at Ristorante alla Torre, in the shadows of the ruins of an old castle in the hills overlooking San Zenone degli Ezzelini in the province of Treviso in the Veneto region of the Bel Paese’s northeast.
The lunch was quite nice. The wait staff was superb. The ambience could not have been any better. And my tablemates, the mammas we treated, O and P, got five-star ratings.
Enjoy the virtual sampling of some of the dishes plated before us, and a quick tour of the wine cellar.
BUONA FESTA della MAMMA!
