Early Mother’s Day

My husband has to work on Mother’s Day this weekend, so he decided that we’d celebrate Mother’s Day last weekend.  As in two days ago.  I would have written about it earlier, I’ve just been so full.

We started with Derby Mint Juleps on Saturday and then had a dinner of Panko-Crusted Salmon with Warm French Lentils:

Delicious.  But wait, there’s more.  On Sunday morning, we woke up to Blueberry and Lemon Crepes with Vanilla Custard and Strawberry and Ginger Mimosas.

Infusing the simple syrup with fresh ginger for the mimosas:

Finished mimosa, shaken in a cocktail shaker and strained, so it had a uniform consistency and no pulp:

The amount of work he put into Mother’s Day was sweet, but now I just feel dread about Father’s Day.

On Sunday night, I made beef short rib ragu, using a pork ragu recipe.

I hope you have a great Mother’s Day this weekend and your husband makes you something delicious.  If not, you could always show him our menu.  Just sayin.
