Mother’s Day Menu


Look how easy I’m going to make this. I would like this Summer Vegetable Pie, and maybe a little green salad with cherry tomatoes on the side. Veggies from the freezer would work just fine in this “pie” (which is not really a pie, there’s no crust, it’s just baked in a pie pan, that’s all), and it’s a very light dish. Vegetarian. Delicious. A little on the girly side, but then that’s what Mother’s Day is all about, right? If you want to man it up, you could always add some chicken or sliced kielbasa. (Reduce the veggies accordingly or it won’t fit in even a deep dish pie pan–or you could put it in a casserole dish.)

I think this would be great with my Ultimate Cheddar Bay Biscuits.

See? I’m not even asking for a yeast bread.

I’d like some Gingerbread with Nutty-Buttery Broiled Topping for dessert with some fresh-whipped Beulah Petunia cream.
By the way, I wouldn’t mind at all if I had some Strawberries & Cream Coffee Cake for breakfast.


Hello? Is this thing on?

I don’t think my chances of getting all this food cooked for me tomorrow are real high, but maybe you could show this menu to your kids and it’d work out better for you. I’m posting it a day ahead so you can start working on ’em. GOOD LUCK!!!!

    My grandmother once made strawberry shortcake from scratch, strawberries from her garden, and while preparing it for me her neighbor called and asked her if she wanted some fresh milk (from their cow) and she made whipped cream and put that on top. It was the best dessert I ever had and I think of her and that dessert every time you mention Beulah Petunia’s milk and cream. 🙂

  2. CindyP says:

    Oh, wouldn’t it be wonderful to have all of that served up?

  3. Diane says:

    Will your kids deliver to Iowa? No baking here – my best Mother’s Day gift was my daughter and grandson flying out from Savannah on Thurs. I have thoroughly enjoyed his almost-6 months highness with his magical smile! I need nothing else!!! :snuggle: :sun: :sun:

    Hubby and I are both working on Mother’s Day, I’d really rather that the kids weren’t using the kitchen for anything more elaborate than toast, thanks. Not that they can’t cook, what they can’t seem to do is clean up. 😮

  9. Runningtrails says:

    Yum! That pie looks good I might try that with bacon, mushrooms, broccoli, califlower, carrots, onion, bell peppers and zucchini.

    And I am definately going to make the gingerbread, with or without the pie and eat it warm from the oven with ice cream!!

    Do you still have your cooking articles where you have pictures and recipe. I want to be sure I can find your classic cheesecake, home made pop tarts, how to make my own lard. I like being able to go to cooking and look up your recipes. Is there any way I can find your recipes by themselves.

    • Suzanne McMinn says:

      Barbara, you can go to my cooking archives where I have all my recipes indexed! The cooking archives can be accessed by the little green square button at the top of the sidebar on my cooking blog (HERE!) that says Cooking Archives.

  11. Johanna says:

    I hope you get everything you are hungry for, Suzanne! I’ve been sitting in the hospital all day with my sister who had surgery yesterday, and I have to tell you that food looks really good!

    Suzanne, to insure some home cookin’ maybe a text message or a banner across the bedroom doors? Can’t be too suble……
    Good luck and Happy Mother’s Day!

    For that homemade bread, cut up some chives and mix it in with your butter… excellent! :snoopy:

    Thank you..

    Even though I have no human children, I have my Shih-tzu, Maggie, she is unaware that is is not a human person, she “fixed” me a very nice Mother’s Day breakfast, and with the help of her “Daddy Person” she surprised me with a lovely vase of roses.
    Being a Mommy Person is so good!
