Mother’s Day Dinner 2020: 25 Recipes That Say I Love You

Article Image

Since Anna Jarvis succeeded in getting the second Sunday of May declared Mother’s Day, moms across the country have enjoyed the day off (well, notwithstanding the cleaning up and laundry we end up doing despite or because of our big day).  Hopefully,  many of the more than 44 million mothers around the country (a very conservative estimate) can look forward to a delicious meal. Indeed, more than $4 billion is spent at restaurants on Mother’s Day, making it the busiest day of the year for the restaurant industry.

But instead of taking mom to a restaurant, and waiting to park, be seated, and served, why not do what you do best and whip up a delicious Mother’s Day dinner or Mother’s Day brunch compiled from some of our favorite Mother’s Day meal ideas? Start with a signature cocktail or mocktail, follow with a soup, salad or appetizer, continue with a springy light entree, and finish up with a delicious dessert. Mom deserves it.
