Mother’s Day Brunch At Home Or In The Garden

Before this year’s restrictions on social gatherings – my mother preferred a family dinner at home instead of the going out. So the day would start with me buying an abundance of a flowers from the flower market and arranging them in different vases and placing them throughout her house.  Breakfast would consist of her favorite, crepes simply enjoyed with a dash of sugar and cinnamon, and some tea. Then for dinner, I’d make her favorite pasta dish, or roast, or chicken fajita – based on what she is craving. No gifts, just a classic film we’d watch together over dessert – a slice of lemon cake or ice cream, if our weather permits.

So, this year is no different – at least in our household – where I will spend the day just like the years before.  And since we are all on a necessary lockdown, consider a brunch, maybe in the garden, where the family gets all dressed up, and use the finest china and silverware, and offer up mom a wonderful family gathering with these wonderful suggestions:

Bacon, egg and cheese dish

or classic eggs Benedict

or Spanish Frittata with yogurt and herbs – I think I’ll be making this another weekend

The crepes of course – is traditional at my mother’s house for every mother’s day

Hot chocolate with rose petals and coconut milk – oh yum

Green smoothie for the health conscious mum who won’t budge on her diet

Olive Oil Apple spiced cake – is a win win
