Ah Mother’s Day, the time of year moms are revered for their eternal patience and long-suffering martyrdom. WRONG! It’s more of a desperate showdown to see which kid can outdo the other in the gift department. I know you have probably already been planning months in advance what you are gonna do for your mom for Mother’s Day, so chances are you don’t need this post.
You haven’t? GASP! You can’t see, but I’m lowering my eyebrows right now. Holy crap, you’d better keep reading! Your life may well depend on it, buddy.
But if you need some help figuring out what to make Mom for breakfast tomorrow, here are some life-saving ideas. Remember, the life you save might be your own.
I love the Pioneer Woman. She’s kind of my cooking mentor. Every recipe I’ve tried from her website has always turned out wonderfully, sinfully delicious. Not that I’m encouraging you to sin or anything.
1.Migas are truly a Texas thing. They are delicious blend of eggs and corn tortillas.Yummy!
2.Another good recipe to try, that’s not too difficult, is french toast. Here’s a version you can make the night before and throw into the oven all fancy-like.
3.Something you can’t go wrong with is blueberry muffins and coffee. I mean, it’s a scientific fact that every mother in the world loves blueberry muffins and coffee. If you come across a woman who says she doesn’t, walk away slowly, backward, because chances are she’s not REALLY human and in all actuality is MOST LIKELY AN ALIEN SPY or POSSESSED BY THE DEVIL. These are the two most likely scenarios. For everyone else, here is a great recipe for blueberry muffins.
Pictured: blueberry muffins I made for Nathan’s band the day I went insane (well one of them). I made about 8 dozen different kinds of muffins and THERE WERE NO SURVIVORS.
4.Just in case your mom is one of those health nuts we’ve heard tell about, I’ve included an awesome egg recipe in this “Carb Buster Breakfast) that should fit the bill. It’s also delicious for moms who don’t give a rip about calories. So you’re welcome.
5.Last but not least: coffee. I can’t stress the importance of this enough, folks. If you waltz into your mom’s room on Mother’s Day without steaming hot java goodness…well, I shudder to think of the consequences.
Yes, I have indeed heard of women in this country who don’t drink coffee. It’s a scary urban legend told over campfires, horrifying enough to send a chill up your spine. I’m not gonna add fuel to those crazy rumors here. I’m all about the truth, people. I’ve included a video about how to make a latte at home. If you don’t have all this equipment, you can just make a quick trip to Starbucks or make her a cup of coffee the way she likes it with Ye Olde Coffee Maker. Either of these is a good option.
Tell your mama Happy Mother’s Day for me…if you make it out alive, that is.
