Mommy's Boy

Sunday I was one of the good boys not at the Eagle. Instead I spent the day with my mom and hosted a Mother's Day brunch along with my sister at her place in Asbury Park. Following our mother's example, we prepared a menu of much too much food which included:

Fresh Fruit Salad
A Selection of fresh Bagels, lox and cream cheeses (both plain and vegetable)
Prosciutto and Melon

Banana Walnut French Toast
Tomato, Basil and Feta Frittata
Grilled Rosemary Chicken on a bed of mixed field greens with a lemon vinaigrette

Lemon Poppyseed Cake with fresh Strawberries
Chocolate Covered Strawberries.

Nothing makes my mother happier than seeing her children eat heartily. Oh yeah, I did the flowers, too.

Awww....what a good son you are! The menu and photo look divine. I've gained a pound just reading the menu.

Now that's a beautifully set table. You sound like you might be a good cook.

I hope you are having a great week over there in New York City.

As always, sounds like a perfect menu. Can I come to dinner some time?

The flower arrangement is beautiful. My birthday is October 22. :)

I'm so sorry I missed it! Damn, that french toast sounds particularly amazing... I'm glad mommy got a proper fete. The only thing she likes more than seeing her kids eat heartily, is seeing a beautiful "presentation" by her own kids. As usual, you guys more than met the challenge.
