I hope all the mothers out there enjoyed a wonderful Happy Mother’s Day this past weekend. I always have my parents over that day. We used to do it in the evening but this was our 3rd year with an earlier brunch format which I love. Instead of serving the plates in the kitchen, everything is laid out on the table.
Since I prepare several dishes I usually surf the net for inspiration. I wanted to thank all the bloggers who’s recipes inspired this years brunch. Clik on the links for the recipe. I did prepare a Creamy Lentil Salad of my own too. It really was a way to use up leftovers and it was success. use what every veggies you have at home.

I’ve never had a creamy lentil salad before but it does look delicious! 😀 What a lovely sounding meal all round too!
What a spread—happy belated. Love the sound of a spiced cake and those lentils!
That’s quite a meal. We ended up taking my Mom out to dinner and it was fairly pricey.
It’s a good thing all her children are (somewhat) adults with some form of employment.
Wow wow wow…what a brunch! That potato pie looks nice and hearty! What a nice daughter you are! We celebrate Mother’s Day on the 26th.
Everything looks beautiful. I love the lentil salad recipe.
