Last year a group of friend's and I had a fancy schmancy tea and brunch to celebrate our important day. My husband was deployed (AGAIN), and so were many of their husbands. It was a great way to band together to make the day special, and a wonderful excuse to wear pearls, long gloves, fancy hats, and flowery dresses.
Needless to say, it was a great time.
And we are doing the same thing again this year!
Since we are doing it potluck style, I am making a few things for the occasion. I don't expect anything fancy for my actual Mother's Day, so instead I am making all the delicious things I would want for myself... It's a win-win, right?
Here is my menu:
Cheddar Leek and Bacon Muffins
Leek and Goat Cheese Mini Quiches
Spinach Mozzarella and Ham Mini Quiches
Banana Cake with Vanilla Frosting
Mini White Chocolate Cheesecakes
You COULD say I am going overboard... but like I said: things I would like to have... the list just happens to be long!!
I will of course be adding my own touch to the recipes, but just so I don't leave you hanging, here are some recipes for the above items.
