If you want to go all out for Mom, this is the menu for you. Even though this menu is elegant, the recipes are still easy to make. Convenience products like puff pastry shells, frozen seafood, cake mix, and Alfredo sauce make the baking and cooking easy. And Mom will love the results.
Set a pretty table using Mom's favorite china and crystal. Put some flowers in the center of the table and light candles.
And be sure to clean up the kitchen when dinner is done! That's part of cooking too.
Mother's Day Elegant Seafood Dinner Menu
- Seafood in Patty Shells
This beautiful recipe can be made with chicken or ham if Mom doesn't like seafood. If she does like seafood, use her favorite kinds. I myself prefer shrimp. Garnish each shell with a large shrimp on top.
- Roasted Asparagus
This simple recipe is easy to make and really brings out the flavor of fresh asparagus. It's perfect for this favorite vegetable of spring.
- Frozen Fruit Salad
Buttermilk and mascarpone cheese make up the creamy base for this easy frozen salad. You have to make it ahead of time so that takes some of the pressure off when it's time to eat. Just take the salad out of the freezer, slice it, and eat!
- Spinach Strawberry Salad
You can make this salad in addition to the fruit salad, or serve it instead of the fruit if you'd like. The combination of soft and tender baby spinach with sweet and tart strawberries is just wonderful.
- Heart Cake
This special cake is easy to make. In fact, if you aren't confident about your skills in the kitchen and don't want to make a whole dinner, just make this cake. Mom will love it.
- Lemon Berry Tart
But if Mom loves pie, this is the dessert to try. It's rich, creamy, fresh, beautiful, and delicious.
