Celebrating Mom

Grenville and I celebrated Mother's Day this past weekend with a road trip to our home state of New Jersey for a visit with my mom. 


This celebration featured dinner at a favorite local restaurant, the Stage House Tavern in Scotch Plains, NJ, where the food presentation looked as good as it tasted. 

Our dinner choices included lamb sausage appetizer, entrees of sea scallops/vegetables and chicken with crabmeat/b√©arnaise sauce. One of the dessert choices was peanut butter mousse pie.


The tavern remains in its original location and was once a regular stop for stage lines between New York and Philadelphia. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982. (It was crowded with celebrants, so photo taking wasn't possible.)

And, many thanks for comments on my earlier Mother's Day post.
