How will you thank Mom this weekend? With breakfast in bed? Out to a favorite restaurant for a big brunch or special lunch? Or maybe you’ll gather Mom and the family around the table for a special brunch or lunch.
If you need a little help, here are a few suggestions for the weekend:
Mothers’ Day Brunch! How about a delicious Omelet with Sundried Tomatoes & Brie. If you’ve got a big crowd, Asparagus & Goat Cheese Tart might be easier. If Mom’s got a sweet tooth, try my Baked French Toast.
Fill out your brunch with some fresh fruit. The strawberries are looking pretty good and some Honeyed Apricots with Creamy Yogurt. A bread basket is always welcome – especially if it’s filled with yummy home baked goodies Lemon Scones and/or Blueberry Muffins. And don’t forget the Mimosas!
Orange juice – preferably freshly squeezed and chilled
Champagne or Prosecco, chilled
Grand Marnier (optional)
Garnish: orange slice (optional)
Half fill champagne flutes with champagne or prosecco. Carefully top the glasses with orange juice and 1 tablespoons Grand Marnier. Give a gentle stir, garnish with an orange slice and serve.
Mothers’ Day Lunch! For a beautiful start to her special lunch, Mom will love my Roasted Shrimp with Tarragon Aioli. Grill up some asparagus and add it to your serving platter. Next, try one of my mom’s favorite salads … Grilled Chicken Provencal.
Top off your lunch (or bunch for that matter) with tart and sweet Lemon-Lime Squares.
Happy Day Mom and bon appétit!
