But....a lot of people do have a Mummy, if not quite like the one in the picture, and so this year, like every year, somebody has to prepare the Sunday meals - for a change. I often wonder who it is, probably Mummy herself, except if the weather's nice, then Daddy will burn the hell out of some poor bits of meat outside.....and serve it up with a bunch of flowers!
Here's a bit of help from "what's cookin'.com....might just save some marriages....
"Mother's day is one of those things that require an almost impossible amount of "secret" preparation, and almost impossible to keep "secret". Maybe that's why most husbands prefer to take "Mummy" out to a Restaurant - which one at least they can keep secret!
Seems nowadays that IF you stay home, then this day becomes a sort of "Brunch" day....with stuff lying around all day long, and, sweating over the Barbecue, Daddy finally saying "Who da hell is da Cook around here anyway...?"
Image via WikipediaStrangely enough, "Mother's Day" seems to vary around the World, probably a female idea to get more out of it.....!
Here you can find out all about it:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mother's_Day.....with dates and everything, and in all sorts of languages....nothing left to chance...!
Apart from the expense of a Restaurant, or the running around of a BBQ or the eternal, never-stopping "Brunch" there are special menus you can prepare, or get "Mummy" to prepare....!
|chicken with Scampi - different!|
Again Brunch seems to be the "in" thing, or here they talk about the BBQ, and - for a change - A PICNIC....Nobody tells you what to do when, as usual, it pours down or snows....Too late to find a Restaurant then!
In any case - have a nice time, and don't forget - "Father's Day" does come.......
SOMETIME OR OTHER.........!
