My husband said to me the other day, you girls (meaning me and my sisters-in-law) should plan something for Sunday dinner for my mom. I kind of looked at him and then he said, “maybe me and my brothers will do it.” I said “um, yeah, I’m a mom and I think you should cook for me and for your mom!” Ha ha! Well these recipes are easy enough for anyone to do! Happy Mother’s Day, everyone!
