Mother’s Day is all about treating mom and showing her how much you appreciate everything she does for you. A great way to do that is by putting on a delicious feast that will have her drooling – with memories for years to come.
If you’re stuck for ideas, here are some of our favorites options that moms are guaranteed to love. And the best part is, DJR Catering provides them all so you don’t even have to do the work – but you can still reap the rewards of her unconditional love.
A Seafood Feast
Mother’s Day in May is a great start to the warmer months, with summer just a few weeks away and the frost is all gone. It’s also the time where seafood comes out to play and is caught in abundance.
If mom loves fresh seafood, choose some delicious treats straight from the ocean. One of the favorites is stuffed clam or oyster shells. They’re stuffed with cheese, sometimes a jalapeno pepper, and then they’re roasted. Served with potatoes and asparagus, with a shrimp cocktail on the side, and you’re guaranteed to impress.
Ham It Up
With warmer weather, you might consider a feast of pulled pork with salads as a side, with veggies. If pork on its own isn’t your thing, consider pork of a different cut like Ribs or Ham
For those of you who’d like a little taste of Italy before your Mother’s Day dinner, look no further than an antipasto platter. It’s a fantastic mix of meats, cheeses, olives, and peppers of various types, sure to leave your mom’s mouth-watering for Italy. It’s a great way to start the celebrations off, or you can add the platter to your mains as an extra side.
The Turkey Dinner
For those who want to stick to something more traditional, there’s always the classic turkey dinner. Begin with a simple vegetable platter and as you’re devouring that, enjoy a few slices of perfectly roasted turkey – cooked to perfection. Turkey basted in a range of dressings, including rosemary and thyme, is always a hit at the Mother’s Day dinner table. Serve it with asparagus and roast potatoes.
Top off your dinner with a delicious dessert, such as a cookie platter, or cheesecake and mom is guaranteed to rave about her “perfect child” for years to come. There’s plenty of choices when it comes to arranging your Mother’s Day dinner feast.
