It's my Mom's birthday today. It might seem strange to people that a 46 year old woman would call her mother "Momma" but really, it isn't ;) When Justin was a baby learning to talk he found a way to discern Grandma and Mommy. He would hear me call my mother mom but to him I was mom! What he decided to do was call me Mom and Grandma became Momma! So, still, to this day, my mother is called Momma whenever I am talking about her to my children and my children still call her Momma.
Happy Birthday Momma!
Even though Mom's birthday was almost a week away, we celebrated it here last Saturday. With my Mom's schedule not being workable with our schedule during the week, I decided we needed to get together when we had the opportunity. We had a little family gathering the day before Easter, had grilled chicken, venison burgers, tossed & potato salad and for dessert we had Mom's birthday cake.
Cooking Light for some cake recipes and came across this Banana Raspberry Cake with Lemon Frosting. I had bananas that I knew would need to be used and I loved the fresh berries with lemon frosting so this became the cake to make! There were no raspberries in the grocery (and boy do we have a lack of grocery stores in our area right now!!!) so I bought these nice big blackberries they had. Turned out the cake looked beautiful with those big blackberries filling it and decorating it. This was a very good cake and it made my Mom happy!
