Mother’s Day for me is a simple breakfast at home, followed by a couple of hours at the Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens, which is my favorite way to spend an afternoon.
The family indulges me, since they know it’s my “happiest place on Earth”. It will be crowded, not Disneyland crowded, but art gallery crowded.
Spencer always asks me what I want to do, knowing full well what the answer will be. I don’t really like buffets or anything “all you can eat”, especially on a holiday, because then I usually eat more than I should…way more! Besides that, it’s always crowded and feels rushed.
I already know what I’ll be eating for breakfast this Sunday morning, my favorite, Lox and Bagels! Ok, I’ve posted this before, but I told you it was our “celebration” meal; birthdays, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas morning. What’s not to love? It’s like sushi on a bagel!
So, if you want something festive for mom or your wife on Mother’s Day, but don’t feel like cooking, how about picking up some smoked salmon, bagels and cream cheese. Top the bagels with thinly sliced purple onion, capers and tomato, serve it all with mimosas or orange juice and she’ll be happy! If you feel like going to a little more work, how about making this delicious Blintz Soufflé? Just don’t forget the flowers!
