In the eight years that we’ve been married, my husband has customarily been “the breakfast guy.” I’m not much of a breakfast person; my breakfast meals consist primarily of bagels, yogurt, or a bowl of cereal. I rarely eat egg and am not a huge fan of traditional breakfast foods – except for bacon, that I’m good with. Thus, my husband inadvertently took on the role of cooking breakfast the majority of the time since he is actually very much a fan of the meal and could eat pancakes all day long. In all honesty, the man makes better pancakes, and even better eggs, than I do, so I’m happy to have him do it.
Breakfast in bed is, apparently, a tradition for Mother’s Day throughout the nation. I don’t particularly remember doing this for my mami growing up; I’m pretty sure we took her out to eat that day. But, I can say that one of the most fun memories I have of my own Mother’s Day (this year makes only my sixth) is when my baby girl and husband snuck out of the house early in the morning to our local grocery store and bought the necessary items to make me my very own breakfast in bed. The look on my girl’s face alone as she helped carry the plate into my room made the day special.
My breakfast in bed that day was pretty simple and perfect for someone like me who doesn’t normally do a huge breakfast. This year, my husband knows that if he and baby girl decide they want to treat me to a Mother’s Day breakfast in bed, they have some very simple breakfast recipes they can choose from. Here are a few you too can share with your family.
