Happy Mother's Day & Breakfast

Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers out there!

Anybody served breakfast in bed? Both my daughters are in Toronto today and so it's just my Honey and I for breakfast. Don't feel bad for me though. Before I share today's delicious breakfast, I want to walk down memory lane and share my first memorable MD breakfasts in bed.

Flower Girls at my cousin's wedding

First Ever Mother's Day Breakfast in bed...the girls were probably 4 & 6 and too little to be allowed to make anything hot. So I got chocolate milk (their fave but not mine) and cold cereal. They were both so proud. How could I tell them that...
1. My mouth doesn't really like food at 6 am
2. I'm a coffee kind of girl and chocolate milk is never my idea of a great beverage (unless of course it has some ice cream and kalua in it and is served by the pool or beach.
....so I didn't and for the next few years...this was my treat. Best part...having them eat their breakfast with me in my bed...and yes...the sheets needed to be changed.

First hot Mother's Day Breakfast in bed...Joanna, then 8 or 9, wrote down the "recipe" for instant coffee the night before and served it with toast. Awesome! Even if it was still served three hours too early.

In case you still haven't eaten breakfast yet...here's a treat..."left overs" frittata (lots of options here). The one pictured above was made with the last of our dinner the other night - steak & roasted potatoes with some Sauteed Mushrooms & Spinach.

And ...no....today's breakfast was served at the table with freshly ground, freshly brewed Just Us! fair trade Rise Again coffee.

I can't wait to hear the stories about the breakfasts my grandsons will be making. Currently they're a little too little to even be thinking about it...

Hope all you mothers, daughters and sons are having a great day...and you dads too!
