What are you cooking for Mother's Day?
« on: May 06, 2013, 10:30:17 am »
I can't believe its nearly here already, and I've hardly thought about what I'm going to cook :o :-[

I have an idea for dessert: I'm going to try making chocolate cases with cheesecake mixture in them. I'm hoping to post the recipe if they work. But I have no idea what to cook for a main course :(

What is everyone else cooking, or having cooked for them? ;)

My DD is having me and her in-laws for lunch so I told her I'd love to help her out - it would get me back into the kitchen for a good cookup.
I'm making a Vienna loaf, EDC beetroot salad, Chicken parmigiana bake (non-TMX recipe) and Peaches & Cream dessert from the forum.

It's Mother's Day so it will be DH and the DS that will be cooking for me on Sunday. Truth be known, we'll probably end up at one of the restaurants at Burswood.

As long as you have a good time and don't have to pay MEP ;D

Judy, your meals sound lovely and I'm sure you will have a great time in the kitchen with DD :D What a perfect thing to do on Mother's Day.
I'd be interested in the recipe for the chicken parmigiana bake :) What cookbook is it from?

I got it from a magazine Amy - Australian Table which I don't think exists now.  As luck would have it though, I found the exact recipe for you online here.  I love that it can be made ahead and just reheated when needed.

That does sound great Judy. Must try.

Auskick super clinic for us on Mother's Day.  So mum is doing the cooking for lunch. Think it's different flavoured quiches and salad. I will make a dessert, but not sure what yet. Any thoughts Amy?

Auskick super clinic Kimmy? That sounds..... fun ;D
 
I would do cookie pops for the dessert Kimmy, maybe a few different flavours and decorations :D
Or caramel tarts using buttersnap biscuits, caramel top 'n' fill, and melted chocolate :D
Or chocolates, like CC's peanut butter bon bons :D

Or all three ;D ;D

Thanks Amy for all the naughty ideas ;D Thinking something a little healthier and less chocolaty. Still getting over Easter and birthday cakes ;) will go through the books and forum tomorrow. Something will pop up.

Thanks JD, my DS would love the parmigiana recipe - he has just discovered the joys of a Chicken Schnitzel Parmigiana at our local pub, kids eat free on Sundays, we have been a couple of times in the last few months.

Ooh that looks lovely Michele.
Have just googled Quirky Jo's Raw macadamia lime cheesecake. Think that's the one I want to try.

I need some help too. My brother has kindly invited all the family to lunch for roast lamb, and I am on salad duty. I am looking for a salad recipe that I can prepare the night before as we are doing the Mothers Day Classic walk in the morning. I was thinking of a brown rice salad, but will need another salad. Any suggestions?
PS please don't suggest the beetroot salad as it is one of the few things I don't like:(
