A Gift Of Breakfast For Mom

Mother’s Day is almost here and what better gift for Mom, then a relaxing breakfast to start the day! The key to a fun, easy surprise is to keep it simple and pretty. This is a nice breakfast for Mom or Grandma that isn’t complicated, but will bring a happy smile,and maybe even a few tears of joy.

The Food

Sausage
Buy a good brand of heat and serve sausages. They can be warmed in the microwave, or cooked on low heat in a small skillet. (Younger children should opt for the microwave.) Follow the directions on the package.

Waffles
Buy Mom’s favorite flavor of waffles. Toast and serve with a generous amount of the following Berry Butter. You can also sprinkle lightly with confectioners sugar.


Berry Butter

Ingredients:

1 stick softened butter, cut into pieces
1/3 cup strawberry preserves
1/4 cup sliced fresh strawberries

Place butter, preserves and strawberries in a medium bowl and mix together by hand with a wooden spoon. Transfer to a small bowl or container.



Strawberries and Cream
Purchase extra strawberries and a small container of whipping cream or half and half. Slice the strawberries into a pretty glass or bowl, sprinkle with sugar, and pour the cream over the berries until they are barely covered. Garnish with a sprig of mint if you have it in your garden.

Fresh Orange Juice
Buy two or three large oranges. Cut in half and squeeze into a glass. Be sure to remove the seeds with a spoon. You can also use a juicer if you have one.

The Decorations

Buy a single rose or carnation and place in a pretty vase. Decorate Mom’s breakfast tray or place setting with doilies, or pretty cloth napkins. Place your homemade card on the tray.
Create your own homemade card for Mom by using colored paper, a white doily and markers. Glue a doily to one side of the colored paper. Fold the paper in half with the doily side out. You can cut a second doily into a heart shape and glue to the front of your card. This one can be lightly colored, so your message will show up. A crayon or chalk works well for this.

Use your marker to write your message or draw decorations on the card.
     The finishing touch to a perfect Mother’s Day breakfast is the clean up! Be sure to wash the dishes, wipe down the kitchen and put everything away just as you found it. Also, be sure to give Mom your biggest hug and tell her that you love her. This in itself will be one of the best gifts she will receive.

      We , who are staying out of our  country can only call our mom and have to say “” Happy Mom’s Day!! “”

    Sarmila – A very good post. Now I only need to find a way to make my husband read this post so that he can help my toddler prepare a breakfast for me. I will surely miss my mom and my mom-in-law who are in India. Happy Mother’s Day to all the bloggermoms!

    Thanks Sarmila for the nice post. Happy Mother’s Day to all Bloggermoms. I would love to do this for my mom but she is traveling. I agree with Mahi. I would love it even more if somehow my husband helps my son to do this for me.
