Mother’s Day Menu

Mother's Day Menu

Guys!  It’s almost Mother’s Day!!!

Typically, when I host Mother’s Day, we do a more “girly” menu (think salads, dips, muffins and light bites) and you can see that complete menu HERE.  It’s really good and my mama sure does love it!!  (There are other yummy things like a Strawberry Buttermilk Cake and Lobster Rolls on there as well!)  This year, however, my mama asked if we could have a backyard dinner for Mother’s Day.  She said she just wanted to sit on my patio and watch her grandkids play in the pool.  I mean, that does sound nice, right?!  So, our menu this year is backyard inspired.

Whether you go for my more traditional menu or this one, it’s sure to please your mama too. xo

Candied Jalapeno Bacon Pimento Cheese Dip

So, we have to start off with some sort of dip, right?  My Candied Jalapeno Bacon Pimento Cheese Dip is not only fantastic (seriously, make it!), but can be prepared in advance (which is super helpful when you’re entertaining!).

Panzanella Salad

My favorite salad this time of year is my Panzanella Salad.  It’s just perfection.

BLTortellini Pasta Salad

For a side?  BLTortellini Pasta Salad!  I’ve said this a million times before, but my mom loves anything BLT.

BBQ Apricot Grilled Chicken

And on the grill?  BBQ Apricot Grilled Chicken.  Easy and delicious!

Lemon Berry Trifle

Wrapping things up for dessert, you should make my Lemon Berry Trifle.  So many yummy flavors in one easy recipe.

Happy (almost) Mother’s Day!

    Whenever I click on either of the links to your “traditional” mother’s day Menu, it sends me to yesterday’s chores & allowance post instead. 🤔

    I made the bbq apricot chicken last night, after you posted something about it last week (I think?). We also had grilled corn on the cob and a salad…with lemonade pie for dessert. So, basically it’s like you planned our dinner. And I will be saving these recipes! Everything was delish and gobbled up! I’m sad I have no leftovers.
