Mother’s Day Tradition
What do you have planned for Mother’s Day? Does your family have a tradition of going out for brunch or having a family dinner? I usually receive a planter basket of flowers to hang on my porch. One popular Mother’s Day tradition that I love is serving breakfast in bed on a tray. The breakfast doesn’t have to be complicated. It’s more of a thoughtful gesture that can include flowers and a card. One easy breakfast to serve on a tray is a continental breakfast.
I remember when I was on a study abroad trip in Paris, every morning we would walk to a hotel right down the street for a continental breakfast. Even though we had the same food every time, it was simple but so delicious! The continental breakfast consisted of a crusty warm baguette straight out of the oven, a jar of fresh jam, orange juice, and a pot of hot chocolate. It was seriously heaven and something I still crave years later. There’s something about those French boulangeries that make the best bread!
