A good brunch menu includes; hors d'oeuvre /starters, drinks, some savour munchies and delightful dessert. Quite simple isn't it ! The hard part to decide what dishes to serve. With my reputation of keeping it quick and simple I have just the perfect menu up my sleeves. I am thinking.. whole wheat crackers with hummus to nibble while you chit-chat, a bite of India’s favourite mushroom tikka and tandoori paneer tikka, a sip of mango mojito to wash it down, portions of Italian red sauce pasta and English beetroot scotch eggs followed by pleasant rose falooda or a slice of orange upside-down cake with some tea on a table full of loved ones.
How the Celebrating Mothers Day Tradition Started
Mothers day is celebrated world wide in different patterns but with same sentiments. In India we compare our mothers to god, actually I feel these relationships should be celebrated not just one day but everyday. Dedicating this one day to her is not enough but as a Mother I know I certainly would not mind a special dedicated day as well. DO you know formal celebration of a day to honour mother goddesses is first recorded in ancient Rome and Greece.
The modern precedent for Mother’s Day is the early Christian festival known as “Mothering Sunday.” The mothering Sunday transformed slowly into mother's day when the children presented their mother with gifts and flowers. From the 1900s onwards until the present, mother's day is celebrated on second Sunday of may except for Thailand where they celebrate it on their queens birthday! Isn't it great to see how the world walks along with you to honour mothers.
Enough food for thought! lets move on to arranging this beautiful Sunday brunch. Don't shy away from making this a ‘perfectly organised’ brunch. I am planning to make a super easy menu or may be take her out for a lunch date with my sister and treat myself too 😀 . Why… I am a mother too 😛

Or may be if it sounds too overwhelming cut a few items from the menu order in few things and cook few from this list. Whatever works for you.
