Mother’s Day Ideas

Mother’s Day is coming.

Menu Picnic Brunch

Running out of ideas to let your Mom know how amazing you think she is? We have some great ideas to share with you, plus some simple recipes even a novice can throw together.

Most people think of Breakfast in Bed as the traditional Mother’s Day gift. I personally do not like breakfast in bed for a hundred and one reasons. That doesn’t mean you can’t still cook your Mom breakfast, just give her a couple of minutes to get up and put herself back together.

This a great time of year for Breakfast on the patio or back yard, or maybe a Picnic Brunch, I think I like this idea better. I am always big on planning family outings that entail some form of activity like walking on the beach or biking a trail and then find the perfect location for your Picnic Brunch.

So what food should be in Mom’s Picnic Brunch, this is a special day so we need an extra special menu. Here are some ideas and I will even add one to two recipes to go with it.

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus Platter

include pita chips, olives, feta chunks, cumber slices, & tomato wedges.

Yogurt Berry Parfait

Homemade granola, plain low fat yogurt, & fresh berries.

Homemade Banana Bread with sharp White Cheddar

Smoked Salmon Cheesecake.

All of these recipes travel easily and need little utensils. I will list practical packing advice, recipes and serving suggestions in next weeks post.
