Mother’s Day Brunch and Creamy Lentil Salad

Share!

I hope all the mothers out there enjoyed a wonderful Happy Mother’s Day this past weekend. I always have my parents over that day. We used to do it in the evening but this was our 3rd year with an earlier brunch format which I love. Instead of serving the plates in the kitchen, everything is laid out on the table.

Since I prepare several dishes I usually surf the net for inspiration. I wanted to thank all the bloggers who’s recipes inspired this years brunch. Clik on the links for the recipe. I did prepare a Creamy Lentil Salad of my own too. It really was a way to use up leftovers and it was success. use what every veggies you have at home.

That’s quite a meal. We ended up taking my Mom out to dinner and it was fairly pricey.

It’s a good thing all her children are (somewhat) adults with some form of employment.
