I hope you guys all had a lovely mother’s day!
Mine started off really well by winning two sets of competitions on Instagram with one of them being from The Pasta House x Lulu Flora.
It was such a good win as I got to choose four different pastas, a bottle of Little Berry wine, garlic bread and the most amazing bunch of flowers from Lulu Flora.
One of the pastas I chose was the pappardelle ai funghi. This had a wild mushroom medley sauce and was just delicious! It had a more subtle flavour but was definitely one of my faves.
I also chose the lasagne emiliana which was so good! This one had a stronger flavour but was so yummy. I’m not exaggerating when I say that this was one of the best lasagnes I’ve had in awhile.
The third pasta dish I had was the gnocchi napoletana. This had a bang of flavour and was so good. The gnocchi was just the right texture and was still good the next day after reheating.
Last but not least was the cannelloni di carne. This was also really good. Most cannellonies I’ve had have been soggy but this was cooked to perfection. The flavour was again another subtle one but still yummy.
All of the pastas were so good, it was hard to choose a favourite but the pappardelle ai funghi and lasagne emiliana just pushed through to the top.
The garlic bread was also really good and went so well with the gnocchi napoletana!
The wine was Little Berry Mclaren Vale Shiraz. It has a strong taste but paired really well with the pasta dishes.
Lastly, the flowers from Lulu Floral were absolutely amazing! They were the biggest bunch I’ve ever seen and were so pretty.
It’s been 3 days since I received these and they’re still in good condition. The Madonna lilies are now in full bloom and are absolutely massive! Everytime I walk into the room, I can smell their floral smell straight away.
How did you guys spend your mother’s day?
