Mother's Day

10 Ideas for Mother's Day Dinner

April 28, 2014

It's seems strange that there's only one day a year dedicated to celebrating moms -- the women who taught us how to tie our shoes and blow our noses. They feed us, clothe us, and -- when we're grown -- they share a drink with us and recall all the times they almost lost it while taking care of us. 

Mom, it's time to return the favor -- with a meal that shows just how much we appreciate you. We'll act like the responsible adults you raised us to be; we'll make a grocery list three days out, prep the sides the day before, and set the table that morning. This year we're going big (or we're not going home). Here are 10 ideas for the best Mother's Day celebration yet.
