Mother's Day is one of those holidays where they give us the Big Push to eat out at restaurants. Do you cook at home instead of giving into the temptation to eat out? If so, what does your home-cooked Mother's Day menu look like?

Hmmm .... haven't given it much thought.

Frankly, I don't mind throwing something in the crockpot. Especially if the kids clean up.

Or maybe DH will grill. That'd be nice.

But I wouldn't want to go out. The crowds. The wait. The expense.

My dd and dh make me breakfast, and I force it down, since I don't usually eat breakfast. lol

Then for dinner, they always take me to either Ruby Tuesdays or Olive GArden.

Ugh...Olive Garden...here it's a 45 minute wait to get seated on a regular day, I can't imagine what the wait would be like on Mother's Day! (The food is good, but I just can't handle waiting 45+ minutes to be seated. I could have cooked the meal myself in that amount of time!)

I don't care what we do or don't do ~ but I'm NOT cooking!
Same.

Haha, yes! Love Olive Garden but not waiting that long. (unless I'm waiting at the bar.)

Erm, I don't even know when Mother's Day is this year. :ponder:

That sounds nice. I don't think I would want my dh to attempt to cook on Mother's day. :p I rather wait at Olive Garden. heh
