What are you doing for Mother’s Day? That’s the question that’s on everyone’s mind.
According to national surveys, over 70 million Americans will go out to eat on Mother’s Day, one of the most popular days to dine out of the year. The number one answer mothers gave for why they like to go out on this day was to get a break from the kitchen and have a meal prepared for them. What better way to show your mom how much you love her than allowing her the luxury of a delicious meal cooked for her, in her own home, where she can leave on her slippers and comfy cloths. For all those years that she cooked and cleaned up after you, it is a wonderful way to show your appreciation and say, “I love you.”
Pauladeen.com has some fantastic recipes for just such an occasion. Start the dinner of right. Allow mom to put her feet up and enjoy Paula’s delicious caprese pinwheel appetizer. This starter is so easy to make combining premade puff pastry dough and pesto with delicious fresh tomatoes, mozzarella and basil. A wonderful way to ease your mom into a relaxing evening.
For the main course whip up a restaurant quality meal with pistachio crusted salmon with lemon cream sauce. The crunch from the pistachio crust gives the fish a wonderful texture and the creamy lemony sauce accompanies the flavor of the salmon perfectly. Mom will be so impressed! Couscous with mushrooms is the perfect side dish with the salmon. Couscous is so simple and easy to cook, ready in just minutes and then jazzed up with some extra flavor from the onion and mushrooms. And, for all those years your mom told you to eat your vegetables, create a beautiful fresh citrus salad with poppy seed dressing. The sweet bites from the orange and grapefruit play wonderfully off the spicy flavor of the arugala. The avocado provides that nutty creamy texture to round it all out. Fresh and healthy this is a meal your mom will be sure to adore. All the hard work you put into it says so much.
Now, for the grand finale; whose mom doesn’t love chocolate? And what says I love you more than a decadent rich cake? The name of this cake says it all; chocolate heaven cake, it is truly heaven. For every birthday party and holiday dessert your mom ever made you, show her how much it meant with this incredible made from scratch treat. Adding fresh brewed coffee to this cake really brings out the richness and flavor of the chocolate while the buttery frosting just melts in your mouth.
This Mother’s day, let mom sit back and get relaxed while you whip up this wonderful meal from scratch, it will mean so much.Read More From Holidays and Entertaining.
