A Mother's Day Lunch

Happy Mother's Day to you all

For my women readers you may not be a mother to a child but you may certainly have influence over some children OR maybe some pets.

Any which way I do just want to give a pat on the back to all of the women out there so that they know they are loved and appreciated.

I have been away from blogging for a little while so this post may be a little bit like learning to ride a bike again.

I took a little unintentional vacation from blogging as time just didn't seem to be available, however today that changes and I want to share with you a local restaurant that my mom and I visited this weekend in honor of Mother's Day.

The Celtic Fringe in Reidsville, NC.

A fantastic little pub serving some very delicious food.

I had the fish and chips (the fish was haddock and the fries were hand cut):

My mom chose the Welsh rarebit:

I forgot to take a picture of the delicious chocolate cake and strawberry shortcake, my apologies once I saw my cake I just had to dig right in...there was no time to get a camera out.

The service was wonderful and the atmosphere was something right out of Europe.

If you ever find yourself in small town Reidsville, NC make sure to make The Celtic Fringe one of your stops.

This was a great Mother's Day treat, and I hope my mom enjoyed going as much as I did.

It was kind of nice, even though I love my children, to have a meal without them and be able to carry on an actual adult conversation, and more importantly, with no interruptions.

So again Happy Mother's Day mom...I love you.

  1. How could you leave out the chocolate?! Hope you had a terrific day and break from blogging, though glad to see you're back :)

  2. I loved it! Thank you for the lovely treat!

    Love you always,

  3. what a lovely lunch

  4. Happy Belated Mothers Day Rachel! It was so lovely that you got to spend some quality time with your mom :)
    I cherish 'one-to-ones' with my mum as they're so rare these days (perhaps twice a year if I'm lucky). My mum came over to Bath for a day a couple of weeks ago and it was SO nice to spend time with her, just the two of us :) It's her birthday next week and, for her present, she said she'd like to spend a day with me again soon. I'm planning to book for us to have 'afternoon tea' in one of the posh hotels in Bath. I've never done anything like that before so it'll be a great experience :)

  5. I always forget to take dessert pics - it look so good and I get excited. No time for a photo shoot! LOL!

  6. Taking pics of food is hard for me because I love hot food.

  7. Looks like you really had a good time...Thanks for sharing this wonderful pictures with us =)
