Get ready for Mother’s Day with VG Meats

Get ready for Mother’s Day with VG Meats

In many ways, April feels like a month of change and transition as we shake off the last, lingering thoughts of winter and begin to fully embrace spring. We’re cooking outdoors again, putting away our winter jackets for the third (and hopefully final) time and planning for the beautiful months ahead. It’s a good feeling! But while you’re soaking up those much-needed rays of sunshine and making plans for the May long weekend, don’t forget what comes first: Mother’s Day. This year, it falls on Sunday, May 14th. That’s just over two weeks away!

Whether you’re cooking up a feast for your mom or the mother of your children, we’ve got a few ideas to help you plan a delicious meal that says, “thanks for everything, Mom.” And of course, it all starts with delicious, high quality local meat.

Breakfast and brunch

Some moms love breakfast in bed while others want to sleep in and enjoy brunch a little later in the day. In any case, offer her a morning meal that kicks off Mother’s Day on a delicious note. Here’s your shopping list:

A special dinner

Mother’s Day dinner can be anything: casual, comfort food, a family BBQ or an elegant meal that marks the special occasion. What you cook should depend on what the moms in your life would most enjoy. Here are a few ideas:

Reminder: grab some dessert and her favourite wine, beer or cider!

Don’t forget these extras

As much as we love good food, we know there’s a lot more to this holiday than brunch or dinner. Be sure to have a heartfelt card, some flowers and/or a thoughtful gift that the special mom in your life will love. It’s all about making her feel recognized, cared for and appreciated—so spend a little time planning, make it a special day and above all else, make sure she doesn’t go anywhere near the dishes.
