What are you making Mom for Mother's Day?

I'm thinking standing rib roast, herbed potatoes, dinner roll, whatever vegetable looks good this week, and chocolate cake.


...and that's the way it is in northern Minnesota.

I'm cooking an Honors Breakfast for the Sault Tribe that will include various omelets, my "World Famous Pancakes, with buckwheat", sausage, bacon, ham (cooked on my Webber Kettle with maple wood the night before), real maple syrup from our tribal sugar-bush, and fresh fruit cups. Various beverages will also be served. It's going to be held on the Saturday before Mother's Day.

This breakfast will be for any who will bring their mother. I have a freind who loves to make omelets. He'll be doing that part. We'll both be cooking the meats, except the ham, and I've got pancake duty. Should be fun.

Of course, I'm gonna have to come up with something special specificall for my wife on Mother's Day. I'll probably grill up some steaks, with some steamed zuchini, or maybe artichoke, and portabella mushroom caps.

hopefully, i will be going "down the shore" to see my mom, with dw and the boy. both mommies love a local chinese place, so we might go there, or get take out.

i am gonna call my mom tho, to see what her favorites are. if something is similar to dw's taste, i might make it for them. i'm thinking lamb, or maybe shellfish with pasta.

i learned my lesson to ask what someone likes if you are going to cook for them. a few years ago, my mom broke her wrist so i went down to their house to make a few meals to have for the week. one dish i made for my parents was a dish my wife taught me and i absolutely loved. chicken breasts smothered in a thick lemon pepper sauce with mushrooms. i cooked up a storm, and served the lemon pepper mushroom chicken for dinner that night. after watching my parents politely pick thru what i thought was a great meal, i found out they don't like mushrooms.
i took home a lot of leftovers.

I am 'Mom".

Nobody else cooks around here, so will have to think about what I want to eat.

Gosh, I hadn't even thought of that. I knew Mother's Day is in a week but I didn't even THINK of cooking something for her! I better start looking up some good vegetarian recipes!

My wife and I are having both of our parents and my grandparents over to our house for a BBQ (cookout for all you southerners ). We are not going crazy since we are on a tighter budget now that we have a little one so I think we are doing the standard burgers, dogs, sausages, plus a number of different salads like my black eyed pea salad. I will probably also make some chimichurri sauce for the burgers and my mom loves the jerk sauce I make so I will have to do that too.

Honestly, to tell the truth, I don't know. My family and I have been busy preparing for my parents 40th. wedding anniversary party on the 21st of this month. We have a bunch of friends and family coming to celebrate. They actually got married on the 27th. but we did not want to compete with Memorial Day weekend.

Are the world famous pancakes with buckwheat on this site and if so do you know where I can find it? I used to make buckwheat pancakes years ago and had forgotten about them. Pancakes don't usually stick to my ribs, but those did and oatmeal pancakes do.
