i think we'll probably stay home, and i'll let dw sleep in late. i will take the boy to a park for a few hours so she can really sleep.

then, it'll start with breakfast in bed of a 3 eggwhite, chorizo, and mushroom omelette, home fries, yogurt with fresh berries and flax seeds, coffee, cranberry and orange juice.

then it'll be a "whatever she wants to do" day. maybe go to lambertville, nj/ new hope, pa. for a day of artsy craft shopping and eating.

for dinner, i'm going to suggest that i'll make dw's fave: steamed lobsters, littleneck clams, redskin potatoes, and corn on the cob. and lot's of clarified butter.

as far as a gift goes, i'm looking into getting her an inversion table, to help with a back injury. besides, it'll help her see my side of things...

In the UK, Mothering Sunday is during Lent, and we have some special dishes such as simnel cake, although that is now also made as an Easter treat.

All the menus I've seen here are wonderful. We will be at our son's for mother's day, so will celebrate with our daughter, son in law, grandaughter and grandson this Sunday. I think we will just go to Carrabbas after church. I'm taking my mother a basket of goodies to leave with her since we won't be there on Mother's day. She cries when we leave so I will pretend forgetfulness and give it just as we are leaving. That should work.

I never ever go out to eat on holidays like Mothers Day. The menus are contrived & overpriced, & every place is crowded. Not fun.

A relaxing Mothers Day for me is just puttering around the house & then having takeout pizza or Chinese for dinner.

That sounds really nice TG

Saturday night, I think my mom, my aunt and I will have dinner at Isaac's, overlooking the water in Plymouth, MA. I want to make Buttermilk Pie for our dessert back at her house (I've never heard of it before a month ago).

I'll probably make a breakfast casserole for Sunday. Or maybe that cool bacon and cheese monkey bread with fresh fruit on the side.

PS Do you have a lot of mothers??

PS Here's one our mothers enjoyed


Prawn and Bean Salad
500g fresh round green beans, topped and tailed and snapped in half
1 or 2 cans cannelini beans
1 medium red onion, finely sliced
750g raw prawns (shelled weight)
1 teaspoon chilli paste
2 cloves garlic, crushed
4 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 cup finely chopped parsley
2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano
salt and pepper

Bring a pan of salted water to the boil then drop in the beans. Bring back to the boil then simmer the beans for three minutes. Remove immediately from the heat, drain and plunge into cold water. Drain and add more cold water. Drain and place in a large bowl with the drained cannelini beans and the red onion. Stir in the chilli paste and garlic.
Bring another pot of salted water to the boil and add the prawns. Return to the boil and simmer until the prawns turn pink and are cooked. Drain, plunge into cold water and drain. Add to the beans.
Whisk together the oil, vinegar, parsley and oregano and add salt and pepper to taste. Pour over the prawns and beans and turn well to coat.
Chill until required then spoon onto an attractive serving dish.

Hubby will be taking us out to lunch. I'm looking forward to being pampered that day. Happy Mother's Day to all you moms out there!
