Happy Mother’s Day!

I read a quote today, it is now one of my favorites!  “The moment a child is born, the mother is also born.  She never existed before.  The woman existed, but the mother never.  A mother is something absolutely new.”  Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh

I think this quote is particularly lovely to me because this past year both of my daughters became mothers.  Incredible mothers at that!  We celebrated Mother’s Day together and the day could not have been more perfect!

To all of you who are Mother’s, who are expecting, who are nurturers, who influence others with kindness and love, we wish you a very Happy Mother’s Day.

We are excited to share our meal with you, it was pretty darn great if we do say so ourselves and would be a great brunch for any occasion.  The best part of it is that not only was it yummy for today’s brunch, we now have lunch for the next couple of days.  We work hard to stretch a dollar, planning our menus carefully to ensure we can transform any leftovers into the next great meal.

The menu:

Tofu Scramble: Beyond Meat Sausage + Tofu + Spinach

Polenta Benedict:  SoDelicious recipe; Polenta + Avocado + Tomato + Cashew Cream Hollandaise

Lavender Lemon Cake with Lemon Curd: Minimalist Baker curd recipe + A Little Baker cake recipe

Yogurt Parfaits: SoDelicious Unsweetened Vanilla + Blueberries + Strawberries + Kind Granola


Quinoa Fennel Chickpea Salad: VeganYackAttach recipe (we modified the dressing to suit our tastebuds)

Recipes, cost and modified (leftover) meals for later are on the way!
