    As long as there was lemon meringue pie my Mother would have been happy. As she got older she definitely believed in eat your dessert first, then if there's room left you can eat the entree . . . Maybe Of course if there was still pie left she'd go for a second piece of that before eating anything else.

      Definitely have southern fried chicken served in a basket of spiral cut (fresh) french fries, along with cole slaw and homemade biscuits and honey. That's what I'd order.

      PS: I forgot the mashed potatoes and gravy....

        Lobster thermidor
        Chicken Croquettes
        crepes with assorted fillings
        Assortment of fresh fruit, breads, and pastries
        assorted granola/meusli and yogurt

          How about some casseroles like squash or broccoli. Since strawberries are in season, strawberry shortcake would be good. Maybe country style steak with gravy, cucumber salad. Corn of some kind.

                  For years An elaborate Brunch was the order of the day for Mothers Day. We enjoyed some dandies over the years in SoCal. Now at age 92 she doesn't much care for wandering the brunch buffet rows to pick out this or that. She is quite content to work from a menu at her seat at the head of the table. Luckily the Independent Living Center where she now resides has an excellent kitchen and does great holiday meals for the residents. It is like living in a multi-star hotel complex.
                  For her, a good Pork Roast with the sweet/sour cabbage and potatoes and something 'fancy' for dessert would be the order of the day I think.
