My cousin Katie and I cooked Mother's Day brunch for our Mom's and Grandma Dot. I had a great time putting the table together and making it feel extra special.All of the Mom's love working in their gardens so they had some flower seeds and gardening gloves tied together with a tissue paper flower waiting at their place setting. I also made personalized clip on wine charms for everyone so we could keep our mimosas straight. Grandma Dottie and I finished setting the table.All of the food took way longer than I would have liked, but I think it was worth the wait. We had a roasted red pepper, mushroom, spinach and feta frittata, hash brown casserole, melon salad with crème de cassis dressing, almond puff, and brown sugar and cayenne pepper bacon. Most of the recipes were repeats of the amazing Easter brunch my Mom made Duncan and me a few weeks earlier.Then it got pretty quiet as we all chowed down. It was decided that the melon salad looked like Vivi Dots so a photo to capture the dots was in order. Grandma was wearing her Mad For Polka Dots Earrings and matching Flower Brooch - representing as my unofficial PR person, as per usual. I hope you all had an amazing day celebrating the Moms in your life! Did you do anything special to make them feel especially loved?
