Chocolate Mothers Day desserts

All the moms in my family were delighted when I offered to host our annual Mothers Day get-together.

They didnt have to do the cooking, cleaning, organizing, etc.

(or pay a restaurant) for the 12 or so of us that make up the usual group these days.

Also, theres no clutter for them to deal with afterward, in the form of a gift they may not have use for.

,I chose a little bit of a just-for-company recipe, cottage cheese canneloni (my brother is a vegetarian, and this is the sort of main course that does not require a separate-but-equal treatment).

I made fresh focaccia bread to go with it.

Some of the guests brought a green salad, veggie side, and a fruit tart dessert (though any of these could have been purchased or prepared in fairly short order, too).

,Add a tablecloth and place settings in spring colors and off you go.

If the weather is nice, call it a lunch or brunch (according to your menu) and take it outside in a garden or park, especially if there are younger kids in the group.

,If youd like to fancy it up a bit further, put a special flower, flowering plant, or bitty box of good chocolate at the place where each mom will sit.

A little presentation goes a long way.

,Do it right, and nobody will mind a bit if you reuse this idea next year.

Healthy treats for Mothers Day

The time is now to be getting a medical evaluation.

,Possible causes of sharp chest pain are many.

Potential causes could be very mild such as an inflammation in the chest wall, or more serious, such as pulmonary embolism.

There are several other possibilities.

A chest xray and oxygen test, along with an examination, would be important to check at this time.
