Best Mother's Day gift - breakfast in bed!

Mother's Day gift idea #1 - breakfast in bed! I think breakfast in bed or breakfast on the deck might be a wonderful idea. It implies - "you've got all day, take it easy, we'll take care of everything." So, be sure, if this is what you do for Mother's Day that you don't leave a disaster in the kitchen for her to clean up later (I know you wouldn't do that).

For a lazy morning Mother might love to slip into some wonderful pajamas from Sleepyhead while she waits for you to serve her breakfast. The pjs are comfortable, all colors and styles - and they say RELAX!

For a great Mother's Day breakfast, if you're taking care of it yourself, may I suggest French Toast. It is simple, and there are many ways to dress it up. You've had it plenty of times - probably with syrup or jam - and that's great - but there are many other things you can add depending on what Mom likes.Here are a few suggestions other than syrup or jam:sprinkle with cinnamon (lightly)mix together her favorite fresh fruits - blueberries, peaches, bananas and pile on top of the french toastuse a favorite flavored coffee creamer and pour lightly over the warm french toast

Here is a simple recipe for french toast:
4 eggs
1 teaspoon sugar, optional
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
10 to 12 slices white breadbutter

PREPARATION:Break eggs into a wide, shallow bowl or pie plate; beat lightly with a fork. Stir in sugar, salt, and milk.Over medium-low heat, heat griddle or skillet coated with a thin layer of butter or margarine.Place the bread slices, one at a time, into the bowl or plate, letting slices soak up egg mixture for a few seconds, then carefully turn to coat the other side. Soak/coat only as many slices as you will be cooking at one time.Transfer bread slices to griddle or skillet, heating slowly until bottom is golden brown. Turn and brown the other side.
Recipe for French toast serves 4.

Does she like bacon or sausage? You could add that for the breakfast. And a good juice, coffee or tea. Don't forget flowers in a vase - and a clean kitchen. All this while Mom lounges - she will definitely feel appreciated this Mother's Day.
