With my dad on a business trip and my sister still in school in Boston, it was left to me to care for my beautiful mom on Mothers’ Day. No problem– I could handle it! I told my mom to sleep as late as she wanted and to call my cell phone when she woke so I could bring her breakfast. Little did I know just how long she would sleep!
I got up at 6:10, and I still had plenty of time to run, eat, shower, dress, clean the kitchen, AND make my mom’s breakfast before she called me at 10:15!
For breakfast, I cooked up some of my renowned Oatmeal Raisin Pudding (recipe here), and I served it with a few ripe, organic strawberries, a steamy mug of coffee, and a homemade card.
To exercise my creative side, I often like to make presents instead of buying them. Such was the case for Mothers’ Day this year. I found a wooden serving tray at the craft store, painted it, and spelled out “mom” in chipboard letters. Then I made a collage from pictures of my sister and me (it was so difficult to narrow down which pictures to use!).
Breakfast fit for the best mom in the world!
