The actual meal was a sit down affair consisting of a 1st (soup), the 2nd (salad), and 3rd (Fettuccine and mushrooms) courses, came before the choice of entrees (3). This got me thinking about Mother's Day.
|The perfect Mother's Day - Breakfast in bed!|
2 whole egg yolks
2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1/4 tsp. Kosher salt
2 drops Tabasco sauce
1/2 cup butter, melted
|Drizzle hot melted butter into egg mixture.|
If you're having company over why not consider hors d' oeuvres, antipasti, or tapas bar? Let me tell you often it is more time consuming and expensive than a regular sit down meal. If you don't have the proper plates or glassware you can always rent them.

I personally think that a Bloody Mary is the perfect start to a Mother's Day breakfast, or brunch. To build a classic Bloody Mary you're going to need a few things. If you like salt on the rim of the glass why not try celery salt. You can go with straight tomato juice, or pick up a store bought Bloody Mary mix. The choice is up to you.
|Bloody Mary loaded. Salami?|
ice filled glass
1-1/2 vodka, or a little more
4 oz. tomato juice
1 tsp. prepared horseradish
2-3 dashes Worcestershire sauce
For the garnish there is no set rules. Mostly you will find a stalk of celery, and a lime or lemon wedge. I once had a Bloody Mary at a Boston hotel where the rim of the glass had four prawns mounted on it. The bartender called it a liquid shrimp cocktail. There are no rules, just drink responsibly.
As for gifts all I can say is make it from the heart. Flowers and candy are always nice, but taking them out to a show, or offering to go shopping for them, or cook a meal can give you and her that special one on one time.
