Treat mom to breakfast in bed on Mother’s Day with this roundup of super delicious recipes.
A Mother’s Day breakfast in bed is every mom’s dream. You picture yourself sleeping so far past sunrise that you wonder if it’s lunchtime. The kids are taken care of, and you grab a good book to read while you soak in a tub you’ve filled with bubbles.
Then when your toes have turned to prunes, you return to bed where your loving family brings you a breakfast tray laden with your favorite foods.
Your hubby hands you a mimosa, gives you a peck on the cheek, then your adoring family leaves you in peace to continue your morning of bliss.
I love a good dream, don’t you?
But anything is possible if you drop a few hints to make your Mother’s Day breakfast in bed come true.
Ask your hubby and kids to pick up a few things at the store, then give them a shopping list with the ingredients for these mom pleasing slender recipes.
If you’re lucky, they’ll take the hint. If not, you might have to be less subtle and ask for the morning off.
Either way, you’ll get some much needed me time, and the kids and dad will have fun in the kitchen.
If I were to have my dream breakfast, I’d start off with an egg dish.
Poached, baked, or scrambled into an omelette, I prefer my eggs to have a vegetable in the mix. Of these egg recipes, the poached eggs with roasted sweet potatoes tops my list.
Fruit salads are always welcome on my breakfast in bed tray.
I like to add nuts and cheese to my fruit salad recipes. They add creaminess and crunch. The quinoa fruit salad with cherries is a good alternative for folks who can’t, or don’t eat eggs. The quinoa give you that burst of protein.
Naturally, there needs to be a muffin or toast of some kind to have with my eggs.
I can’t resist a muffin. If one were to appear on my breakfast tray, I would truly think I had died and gone to heaven.
My muffin recipes usually include whole grains, and dried fruits or fresh berries. The peanut butter and banana muffins below are fun for kids and mom alike.
I’m raising a Mother’s Day toast to you with my dream mimosa. Here’s to breakfast in bed, reading a book and lounging around.
Whether or not it comes true, there isn’t one minute of tub and book time I would trade for the days when my kids were bouncing on my bed in the morning asking me to make breakfast for them.
Happy Mother’s Day!
