Feeling the like you’re strapped for cash but want to really show mom you care? Well, like so many of you I am feeling the economic pinch also. My dreams of a lavish bouquet of flowers and a designer tennis bracelet perfectly gift wrapped with a pink bow are quickly getting a reality check. With my bank account and only 1 week away, there’s no way I can save up for that kind of a gift!
There is one thing that I know I can do- cook. And even if you don’t know how to cook, it’s a lot easier than you think…just keep it simple! Here’s the deal: invite your mom over to your house/apartment for a special mother’s day brunch- just you, her and whoever else you can accommodate. I am going to make the French toast from our FK DVD which has been a favorite with friends/family and so easy to make. Serve it with some seasonal fresh berries. To really make her day, have a hot cup of coffee ready when she arrives.
Although it seems like money makes the world go round, don’t forget that it’s the thought that counts. Whatever you do make sure your mom knows how much you love her!
