Mother's Day

What is everybody doing for Mother’s Day? I will be cooking brunch for 75 -100 people. My menu will consist of:

Seared Scallops over a succotash of fresh corn, fava beans, bacon, onion and sauce soubise.

Surf and Turf Wellington: Beef tenderloin stuffed with lobster and duxells wrapped in puff pastry

Roasted Salmon with sauce portugaise

Traditional Eggs Benedict with marchand de vin

Mimosa & Bloody Mary

Chocolate Crème Brulee

Orange Crème Caramel

Crepes with ricotta and macerated berries.


Any other ideas are more than welcome.

My sisters and our kids take my Mammaw to the cemetary to momma's spot and then go eat lunch together. We used to go to church with her, but, the church moved pretty far away and she doesn't get there too much anymore. Plus, she will be 89 and doesn't get around as well as she used to.

Whoa... ChefJimmy can I bring my Mom to your meal? That sounds divine!

I think I'm going to take my Mom out for brunch. The culinary school in my city always puts on a fantastic Mother's day brunch and since they are practicing students you can get a really nice meal for a good price.

The menu is here. (online .pdf file)

My Mom would definitely be into that. She loves Memphis a lot. I'd love to take her on a nice trip somewhere but alas... I'm a "starving student" and dont think my student loan would cover the cost of plane tickets!

mother's day

Not sure hopefully staying at home. Probably not I was hoping
to visit my husband's mom and my mom before Sunday but I don't
think it will happen. My birthday falls on May 14th sorta just
wanted to spend it at home with my own kids, but it can't be
all about me.

Kim (husband) will probably cook me a steak on the grill...or perhaps shrimp and scallops.

Every year for the last 6-7 years Paul and I have gone on our first camping trip of the year on Mother's day weekend.

David loves it because he can get away with just calling me a few days before or a few days after. My mom hates it because she thinks we do it so we can get away with just a call a few days before or after... Paul's mom ( Love her to death) tells us to have a great time and enjoy ourselves.
