Mother's Day Dinner Ideas

Updated: May 3, 2022

These are my daughters, 5 and 2, whipping up some soup after catching a little culinary inspiration from Ratatouille. I wasn't allowed to help. They spent 20 minutes marching back and forth between the refrigerator, the pantry, and the kitchen counter, grabbing whatever they could reach and throwing it into a big white bowl before furiously mixing it all together. The entire time they were enthusiastic and focused. But the "soup" was an abomination.

Did I choke down the entire bowl and pretend to enjoy it? Of course, I'm not a monster.

Will the mother in your life do the same for a well-intentioned but inedible homecooked meal on Mother's Day this Sunday? Doubtful, because you're grown and no longer this cute.
