A foodie thought for mom

10 May 2012

“Boys just remember, if mom is happy, then we’re all happy”.

Those are the words of my spectacularly clever other half. He says it with a wink and a twinkle but it’s the absolute truth isn’t it?

If the heart of the family beats strong and proud, so then will happiness and love prevail… and much less screechy scariness from mom.

So you know where this is going, right? Yes, it’s Mother’s Day on Sunday so spoil her rotten and all that, but I’m also appealing to all you non-mothers out there.

Remember mothers all year round, not just on one lone day when flowers are triple the price and all you can get are some floppy old pienk carnations.

All a mom needs is a little extra help sometimes and some good old-fashioned appreciation. So, Dads, how about doing the shopping once a week? Or perhaps donning that apron and cooking her favourite dish once in a while?

Sons and daughters, why not ship your ma to the couch with a mag whilst you cook up a storm of a Sunday lunch, it will be oodles of fun and your brownie points will shoot sky high.

And colleagues at work, the woman who is preggers and looks about to burst, she has a real-live human growing inside her body! Offer the poor woman a hot cup of tea and a biscuit for garlic’s sake.

So start now and keep on going. We’ve got some lovely Wintry dishes to spoil your mum with this weekend. I’m thinking golden, crispy roasts with rich gravy and some decadent puddings to go with that. Or you could do a fabulous braai and keep things relatively simple.

If you’d prefer to go out, take a long look at our delicious restaurant specials, and book immediately.

Mommy hugs,
