Calling all Moms

What would be your ideal mother's day---food wise? What would you like (or like to make yourself) for breakfast/brunch or for a nice dinner&dessert?

Dh thought Mother's Day was next week and confessed tonight that he might need some input from me as far as food goes. So I can pretty much get away with requesting anything. That, and I'd like some new ideas.

          My in-laws are coming for brunch and I'm serving one of my favorite meals -- bagels, cream cheese, lox and whitefish salad (from Russ & Daughters here in NYC), tomato, onion. I'm making a cheese and sausage strata and I'm also making a really easy but delicious sour cream coffee cake.

          Then later for dinner we're meeting my sister and her family in Chinatown for a feast of a different sort.

          I have to laugh...2 traditional Jewish meals in 1 day -- Bagels and Chinese food! My favorites!

              God, I love the whitefish salad from Russ & Daughters. When I visit NYC I frequently bring a cooler so that I can bring some home.

              You'd think a city the size of Chicago could support a decent smoked fish store, but no.

                We live relatively close to Russ & Daughters, but really don't get food from there too often (not for any reason). I sent my husband there this afternoon to pick up the food and when he got home, I had to have a taste of the whitefish salad. I had to control myself after just a taste because I could have kept going and there would have been none left for tomorrow! I gotta tell ya, I think it has crack in it!

                And I just finished making my coffee cake. It smells soooo good (it's the cinnamon). And it's just so easy to make.
