A festive, flavourful brunch menu

Show Mom you care with a delicious feast!

Truth be told, most Moms do NOT want to be served breakfast in bed on Mother’s Day. I can state from experience that it’s more than a little nerve wracking to be told one must stay in bed later than one would prefer, forced to listen to an array of mysterious, possibly messy and/or destructive, sounds coming from the kitchen. Then there’s the panic induced by the sound of young (or older) children trying valiantly to carry trays of food and drink up the stairs to their awaiting mother. It’s a sweet idea but honestly, let Mom do Mom (tea and reading for me, please) for the first hour or two of the day and then treat her to a scrumptious, lovingly-prepared brunch instead. I’ve got a few ideas for you below; search on ‘breakfast’ or ‘brunch’ on this blog and you’ll find loads more recipes that are sure to tickle Mom’s tastebuds. One more tip: be sure to leave the kitchen spotless after brunch is over – that is a gift that never goes unappreciated.
