This is my ideal breakfast for Mother’s Day. A tray with a fresh flower, a small bowl of fruit, an Americano (or cappuccino from my husband), and a Cheddar Jalapeño Biscuit with a runny fried egg & bacon tucked in. What’s missing? A card from my son, a card from my husband, maybe a little gift and a quiet morning reading this book in bed. You paying attention, honey?
Mothers love biscuits. I’m a mother so I have a little bit of street cred here. Actually, mothers love any breakfast that they don’t have to cook themselves. They love to be appreciated for all the hard work they do and don’t mind if you spend a day putting them on a pedestal. They also are not required to do any cleaning on their day. A handmade coupon for LOADING/EMPTYING THE DISHWASHER is awesome. But please include like 20 of them in your coupon book. I guarantee Mama won’t forget to cash those in. Also, moms love it when you take the initiative and plan a whole day around them. Make note of that. NEVER EVER have them make reservations for their own dinner out to eat. If you do, you’re fired.
