A Mother's Day Fun Food Fact

I'd like to wish all the wonderful mommies out there a HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!! And in honor of them, here's a little fun food fact for the day.

The ancient Greeks celebrated Mother's Day by honoring Rhea, "Mother of the Gods" with honey-cakes and fine drinks and flowers at dawn during the time of spring.

Breakfast in bed, anyone?

burpandslurp: Your welcome!
