Tower of Power

Okay. Admit it, when you think of your mom, or any mom for that matter, you probably think of the everyday traditional mom. My mom, however, is WAY better. She loves rock-n-roll (especially Green Day), Converse, going to concerts, a great cook, helps anyone and everyone that she can, a Londoner at heart, and she is even considering a tattoo!  Mary Ruth; coolest mom around and this is her (with Lily the Yorkshire Terrier):

Well, she and my dad were in San Francisco, CA the other weekend to see the city and attend Green Day’s last show of their US tour. While there, they went to Rudys Can’t Fail Cafe…owned by the amazing bassist of Green Day, Mike Dirnt. When she got back from her trip she made us the meal she had there….The Tower of Power. Here is the recreation.
