Mother’s Day Meal Recipes
With the U.K deep in beautiful but treacherous white snow as a result of the “Beast from the East” it feels more like Christmas at the moment. It is hard to believe that Mother’s Day is just around the corner, but don’t forget it is – on Sunday 11th March Mothering Sunday will be celebrated by many.
Some people go all out, with trips to the theatre, Michelin Star dining out in the City, jewellery and gifts galore. But, sometimes the most meaningful gifts are the one’s we make ourselves. How many of us know a mum who has lovingly kept a scribbled drawing that their child made for them – probably all of us! A handmade card and a baked cake or a home cooked meal, goes a long way.
Maybe you are mum and you are hoping for something special to mark the occasion? Here’s the perfect hint…
We bring you dining suggestions from eco cuisine. Whether you are catering breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner here are our delicious recipes for you to use.
Firstly, something easy, quick and yummy for you to make for your mum for breakfast this coming Mother’s Day:
Take two slices of wholemeal bread, 1 egg, 1/3 cup of milk, spices – namely, cinnamon or nutmeg sprinkled in.
Simply beat the egg, milk and spices together, then heat your pan and put in a knob of butter. Dip bread in the mixture and fry on both sides until golden brown.
Serve with honey and fruit if you desire. Remember a nice cup of something hot to wash it down with.

Cooking lunch for her, then what about poached salmon for lunch?
You will need a fish kettle for this recipe.
You need a 2.5kg whole salmon, peppercorns, 2 carrots, 2 celery sticks and one onion.
Place the salmon into the kettle and add cold water to just cover the fish, then add the peppercorns and the rest of the stock ingredients and bring the water to the boil with the lid on. Then switch it off and leave it all to sit in the water until it is at room temperature.
You can take the fish head off or leave it on but it is easiest to take the skin off whilst it is still warm too. Make sure you do both sides and then you can decorate with parsley, lemon wedges and serve with some boiled potatoes and salad.
Doing supper to finish off the day with a home cooked meal for mum, then try this:
Baked Lamb Chops with Rosemary

Serve with a glass of Bordeaux or Cote du Rhone.
We hope you wow her with these simple but delicious recipes. Whatever you’re doing, have a good day!
