A bit spe­cial: break­fast in bed for mum

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - LOOKING BACK -

HOW about giv­ing Mum break­fast in bed this Mother’s Day?

It can be as sim­ple or as com­pli­cated as you like but re­mem­ber it is all about Mum so con­sider what she would pre­fer. Would she en­joy a sweet treat for break­fast or if she would pre­fer some­thing sa­vory?

If your mum is a bit of a sweet tooth then con­sider mak­ing waf­fles – which are re­ally easy if you have any sort of a waf­fle maker.

Al­ter­na­tively hot cakes or pan­cakes are a great idea. What makes ei­ther the waf­fles or hot cakes spe­cial is what you put on them. A few straw­ber­ries, blue­ber­ries or rasp­ber­ries and some yo­ghurt or cream would turn ei­ther into a re­ally yummy, ex­tra spe­cial brekkie.

What makes break­fast in bed spe­cial is that you have done it for your mum so if you don’t nor­mally help cook in the house you should keep it sim­ple.

There is noth­ing wrong with a freshly cut up bowl of fruit and a cou­ple of slices of toast.

Eggs are al­ways great be­cause they are easy to cook in a va­ri­ety of ways, with boiled, scram­bled, poached or fried are all quick to pre­pare.

If your not big on cook­ing con­sider buy­ing some crois­sants – they can ei­ther be heated up in the mi­crowave or an oven.

Muffins make a great break­fast treat which you can ei­ther buy your­self or make.

It is the lit­tle touches which make break­fast in bed spe­cial – put Mum’s break­fast on a tray.

Break­fast in bed can be as sim­ple as toast or you can cook eggs and ba­con as a treat
