I spoke to my mother last night and asked her if we were still on for brunch at my house for Mother's Day. "Well yes!" she said. "What do you want me to bring?"
Now, isn't that just the sign of a good mother? Always ready to pitch in and lend a hand? Of course, since it's Mother's Day, I am letting her do no such thing. This is Mom's day to relax — I am doing all the cooking. But what to cook? I have been meditating on the menu for several days, and I've settled on something fresh and springlike — and yet all able to be made in advance.
