When I was very little, I thought that the best meal in the world was breakfast in bed. I imagine that some children’s book put the idea into my head because I can’t recall a single time that I actually ate breakfast in bed – not until I was an adult and could orchestrate it myself, anyway. So when Mother’s Day rolled around, I always wanted to make breakfast in bed for my mother. Something simple – eggs, toast, coffee and orange juice – qualified as the ultimate luxury meal in my mind and I tried hard to pull it together.
Suffice to say, it never went quite as smoothly as I hoped. But I still think that breakfast in bed is a great idea for Mother’s Day and is not only sweet, but definitely more fun than waiting in line at a packed brunch hot-spot on Sunday morning.
