I was so excited that my mom and sister came!
The Mill is a beautiful place for an event or just a day out. It's a beautiful old mill. They make all their own grits, whole wheat flour, etc.
David and I hosted a Mother's day/ David's birthday lunch at our house Sunday and had the whole family over for a cookout. The weather was beautiful, so we took a walk to the park (which is connected to our neighborhood). We walked down to the river and took a little wade. It was so much fun! :)
It was a great weekend! :) I'm so thankful for my family and especially my sweet mother and stepmother on this Mother's day.
The name of this post comes from an experience David and I had Saturday. We went to this great new Brazilian Steakhouse in Hillsboro village. If you have never been to an authentic Brazilian Steakhouse, let me suggest Bombasha. They have authentic gaucho's serving a huge variety of meats from the grill, straight to your table. Their little outfits are cute, too! Anyways... they bring out some sides for your to eat with your meat and they brought out these starchy potatoe- like things. We couldn't understand what they were calling them, but David said they were called Yucatans. So, naturally, thinking that was a ridiculous name for them, I said "Yucatans?!?!" And he says..."Yeah, Yucatans." After some Googling, we found out its fried manioc, also known as Yuca. :)
