Trying to find the words to describe how amazing my mother is, is really hard. It shouldn’t be though, because you know, she is amazing. Each year, as this special day closes in on us, I can’t help getting a little emotional when I think of her.
I am lucky to still have her in my life. Through the years she has been a constant pillar of support, someone to look up to, someone who cares immensely for our well being, a woman with amazing talents and with unconditional love for her children. She really has shaped my life and in a way my personality too. She always adored us for who we were, without much judgment.
But I realized that as much as she has always been there for us, this responsibility is slowly switching sides as time goes by. Her children are now becoming HER pillar of strength, HER support system and we are now bound by this unconditional love to care for HER in every way possible as she gets older. And what a privilege it is…
For Mother’s Day this year I decided to post a lovely Mother’s day Brunch recipe. Treat your mom with a mouthwatering Blueberry, Muesli and Yoghurt Parfait made with frozen blueberries, crunchy muesli and any flavoured yoghurt of your choice. Simply layer the ingredients in a pretty glass and serve.
Follow the first course with buttery Croissants topped with Scrambled Egg, Crispy Bacon, Mature Cheddar and Balsamic Roasted Tomatoes, and, no Mother’s Day would be complete without a sweet treat – I would highly recommend whipping up a batch of these amazing Choc Chip Banana Muffins to enjoy with a cup of hot steaming coffee.
I hope you get to spend an amazing day with your Mom this Mother’s Day. Be sure to spoil her rotten. If you feel like baking something special for mom this year, why not try my Granadilla Cake I did for Mother’s Day last year. Be sure to have a tissue ready when you read that post!
