One of the great traditions of Mother's Day is letting Mom have the day off from cooking! If Dad and the kids are taking over for the day, don't panic! These easy recipes and menus will see you through the day with ease. First, a few tips.
Tips to Make Mother's Day Easy
- Plan the menu or menus a couple of days in advance, then make up your shopping list from the menu.
- Check the pantry, fridge, and freezer to see what you need to buy.
- Then go shopping a couple of days ahead of time.
- Write down a plan: who is going to make the French Toast? Who is going to arrange the flowers in the vase? Who is going to vacuum the living room carpet? Who is going to pour the orange juice?
- Then assemble all your serving dishes and mark each with a post-it with the name of the dish (tell Mom not to peek!).
- When you're ready to cook, read through the recipe(s) and begin.
- And remember to clean up when you're finished eating; Mom shouldn't have to do the dishes on her special day. In fact, this is a good habit to get into while you are learning how to use the kitchen. Learn to clean as you go and that will make you a better cook.
No matter what you make, Mom will love it!
Easy Mother's Day Breakfast and Brunch Menus
This beautiful and elegant brunch menu is perfect for Mother's Day. It's similar to the menu my sisters and I served my mother when we were young.
These wonderful little quiches are made of a rich egg mixture baked on top of frozen waffles! Mom will love them, along with the fresh fruit salad and lemon bars for dessert.
A brunch is always a good choice on Mother's Day. Not only does Mom get to sleep in, but you will only be responsible for two meals instead of three!
These easy recipes will make Mom feel like a queen.
