Mother’s Day is less than 2 weeks away and it’s time to start preparing for the big day. The most important thing about this day is making Mom feel special and we have exactly what you need to make that happen.
For the most part, you can tweak the lunch menu options below to include ideas and recipes you know your mom (or wife) likes. We’ve chosen easy to make options so your kids can help with the delivery of the special meal but, trust us, we haven’t compromised the quality of the lunch. This 3 course meal will make the special woman in your life feel like the princess she is.
Here’s how you execute the perfect lunch:
First, a couple of hours before the meal (so mid-morning) deliver the handmade menu to your mom. Make sure it looks nice. Deliver the menu to her on a platter with a small vase of flowers (or a single flower if you’re trying to save money) and glass of champagne (or tea or coffee if you think she’d prefer one of those instead). Tell her she can choose one option from each course and one (or two) drinks to be served throughout the meal. She’ll feel so special already and the meal hasn’t even started.
Once the choices have been made, you can start preparing exactly what she asked for, serving each course on platter so she feels like she’s in a 5-star restaurant. At the end, deliver her gift (or card) on a platter to complete the meal.
Now, for the meal options. As we said before, you can change these up according to your mom’s preferences but these are easy and safe choices that we’re sure she’ll love:
Light Spring Mix Salad
Omelette with Fruit
Grilled Chicken Salad
Gourmet Grilled Cheese
Cheese/Crackers and Grapes
Fancy Fruit Cup with Yogurt
Mimosas (Champagne and Orange Juice)
