No Fail Mother’s Day Recipes

No Fail Mother’s Day Recipes

Mother’s Day is around the corner and if your house is anything like mine, it means we need to start dropping some serious hints now. I don’t need fancy gifts (though I wouldn’t turn anything away if someone was compelled to surprise me…), but I have come to realize one of my favourite traditions – -my kids serving me breakfast in bed — requires a little planning (a.k.a. manipulation) on my part.

I remember when they were little, and I would hear them milling about in the kitchen: I actually found it incredibly stressful. Not only was I concerned about something breaking or someone getting hurt (I just lay there, biting my tongue and prayed), I also feared what was going to be presented to me. There have definitely been some interesting creations, all of which I happily ate with a big smile on my face of course.

My kids’ specialty is “smoothies.” I say this with quotation marks because more often than not, there are one or two surprise ingredients that, well, let’s just say the drinks weren’t always as delicious as I made them out to be.

So, this year I think I’ll attempt to skip all the stress by being a little more strategic: I’m happy to either do all the prep work the day before and let the kids take over in the morning, or heck, I’ll throw caution to the wind and let them do it all themselves with a little help from SPC. Either way, I am looking forward to waking up next Sunday to one of these yummy recipes and seeing four smiling faces as they serve it to me. I’ll eat whatever they choose — just please no more Surprise Smoothies!
