So, this past Sunday, she came over for chicken dinner and brought over dessert - lemon snow. I'll just say that there were no leftovers.

My mom always made Sunday dinner. My children grew up with it. Some of my mom's dishes are well known in the family and there are some favourites. Since she hasn't made Sunday dinners for years (she is in a long term care facility also known as a nursing home) some of us in the family have tried to re-produce some dishes. One Christmas, unbeknownst to most of the family, my son made the zucchini with tomato sauce. Since he didn't let anyone know what he was doing, I had decided to do the same dish. It was a sort of 'who did it best' situation. Lemon snow, a dessert that my mom used to make, came into conversation not too long ago. Family dinner now occurs once a month and my youngest, Ayla, thought she would make it but wanted to try it out first, before offering it to the rest of the family.
