I made my first Mother's Day dinner when I was 10 years old. The recipes were straight out of the Betty Crocker's Boys and Girl's Cookbook: Ham Loaf Hawaiian, mashed potatoes, green beans, and a heart shaped cake. I was working so hard cooking and baking that I didn't even get out of my pajamas in time for dinner! My mom loved it. I have improved since then, of course. And when I was a teenager I made Swedish Tea Log and scrambled eggs for every Mother's Day brunch.
These recipes and menus will cover any situation for a Sunday in May, and all are geared to beginning cooks. From a make-ahead brunch to a picnic in the park, your mom will have a wonderful time.
Make sure to have a plan, make lists, and delegate duties so everyone in the family plays a part in the meals and the chores don't all fall on one person. Have fun!
Mother's Day Lunch and Dinner Recipes
A picnic is always a good idea. If the weather's nice, go to the nearest park with Mom. If it's not, picnic inside!
Lunch on the Grill
Make Mom this delicious meal on the grill. A delicious grilled salmon salad is the centerpiece of the meal, and grilled cheese bread complements it perfectly. A make ahead salad and dessert round out this special menu for Mom.
This super easy menu has lots of wonderfully flavored recipes. Chicken Scampi is a dish I love to eat.
Your mom will love it too!
