Sales, Menus & Recipes: Mother's Day

Honor Mom with breakfast!

Mother’s Day

It’s time to honor your Mother. I used to tell my Mother that I didn’t need a special day to give my Mother presents or do nice things for her. But on the other hand, it’s nice to celebrate a special day for her every spring.

One of the most traditional Mother’s Day activities is fixing her breakfast in bed. Now not all mothers really want that, take a cue from your mother. But a nice breakfast is a good way to show your mother love, after all she has probably fixed you innumerable breakfasts, just because she loves you. However, make sure that mom doesn’t have any dishes to do afterward. Leaving a shining clean kitchen is a great way to show her you really do care.

Letting the Kids Help!

Your breakfast doesn't have to be elaborate to make it special. And, it’s great to involve your kids in meal preparation. One idea is to use regular food, but to make it in special shapes. For example, make toast, and cut it out with heart-shaped cookie cutters. Our main photo for this article uses folded crepes to make a butterfly. Or take your pancake batter, put it in a squeeze bottle with a tip on it, and make pancake art in shapes or letters.  This can also be a fun activity for kids, too!
