Mama’s Day Brunch Menu

May 6, 2010

Raspberry Lemonade

I love my Mama.

The older I get… the more I love my mama.

The farther away I get from being a bratty, insufferable and ungrateful teenager… the more I appreciate my mama.

Phew… I didn’t make it easy on her.  Can I make up for those obnoxious years with brunch?  I’m pretty sure it can’t hurt.

The key to making mama a Mother’s Day brunch is this:  make brunch aaaaaaaand do the dishes.  Sure, mama’s like brunch, but I think what they like even more than the food is seeing us kids clean up the kitchen after ourselves.  It’s key.  It’s shows our dear mama’s that they raised us right… cause they did.

Creme Fraiche Quiche

Make brunch.  I totally think you should.

You might start off with this super clever quiche.

Crustless Quiche

I’ve even got a crustless quiche recipe for you.  Now you really have no excuse not to make breakfast.


Salad at brunch.  Mom’s like salad… it’s kinda their thing.  Trust me on this one.

A homemade Caesar Salad?  Kinda mind blowing delicious.

Blackberry Granita

Let’s keep dessert light and delicious.  I love Blackberry Granita with lightly whipped cream.  It feels dainty and delicate and is still super simple and delicious.

I think mama’s like it too.

Just don’t forget about the dishes.  It’s important.  Just think about how many bottles and diapers our moms washed for us.  Yea… so no complaining.
