    Default Is anybody cooking for Mother's Day? What are you making?

    I'm having my mother over to my house. We hate the crowds and shitty service you get at restaurants on busy days like that.

    I'm still debating the menu, but I'm thinking about doing a seafood lasagne with my spinach, pear, toasted walnut and blue cheese salad. Then a home-made meringue filled with fresh berries and creme fraiche. All easy and good.

    But I'm open to suggestions...

    Uh, I think that sounds more like a suggestion for me! I got nothin'. And my mom will be in Seattle, home at 2pm that day. We're going to a concert in the evening.

    You're lucky your mother will eat that kind of food! My mother is such a complete simpleton when it comes to food. That menu would be way too exotic for her. For me, absolutely scrumptious!!

    I don't have a mom anymore, but I was going to bake a lemon meringue pie for my MIL. My hubby is a terrible son - he's playing hockey instead of arranging dinner for his mom.

    ^^Bad husband. Mine is overseas -- he's gone to be with his dying father for an indefinite period. So it will be just my mom and her hubby, my niece and myself. Nice 'n' cozy. At least the weather is supposed to be good.

    Nope, no cooking here. This is my first mother's day , but I'll be moving so nothing special. My mom passed away 7 years ago and my bf's mother passed away when he was young, so no moms to celebrate.

    I feel blessed that my mother is still alive, even if she is not entirely well. So sorry, mariesoleil.

    ^^It's okay, time eases the pain.

    I still love her with all my heart but I know she's much better where she is and that comforts me because she went through hell before dying.

    I'm not cooking on Sunday; I think my mother is boiling shrimp... she likes it and it's easy. Hell I cook for everyone all the time; what I really want to do is see if she will babysit so I can be a drunken slut.

    I used to take a trip near mother's day weekend... 2-3 years in a row.. it was a VERY COOL motel on the beach in Morro Bay, California called The Point Motel. On the bluff on the north end of the loooong beach, about 5 mins. before you get to Cayucos. It's about 45 minutes from Hearst Castle. The place was freakin' awesome... $45 for the front ocean view room, very old and funky (though clean) right out of the 40's and 50's. I imagine it's gone now... took my kids there once... we had a beautiful time. nostalgic....

    ARE YOU CRAZY? You cannot improve on perfection! If Effie & I were coming, you'd have to drop the blue cheese & go for green salad, but your Mom probably likes it! This is GRAND.

    Yes Mira,dont know if you can get the ingredients needed.
    Anyhow,you buy i pack of thick pastry leaves,we call it phyllo.
    half a kilo of hard feta cheese,one big red onion ,6 eggs,a bunch of fresh parsley,and a bunch of fresh anise.
    You ll need one green peper and some olive oil.
    You cut in a bowl feta with your fingers,add the eggs,grind all veggies together with some oil.add it to cheese and mix well.
    Oil a baking pan,oil the pastry leaves one by one ,and place them on the pan making a nest for the filing.
    put the cheese mix in the pan,fold the leaves,cut in lines with a sharp knife,shove it in the oven for about 40 minutes or until the top is brownish and crispy,
    Oh,you sprinkle some oil on top before you bake it.
    It sounds bad,but it is easy.Use your hands to oil the leaves,its easier.

    oh hell yeah we have phyllo here! Always keep it in the freezer. Have to be careful though the stuff is way fattening. Thanks for the recipe! (My ex is middle eastern, and his mom cooked a lot and taught me but I've forgotten a lot of it.)
