You discreetly open one eye and scan the room. Maybe if you don't move they will think you are still sleeping. Crash! The door flies open, the grits go airborne and you know they have found you out! There they stand in the doorway -- your family, grinning from ear to ear. It's another Mother's Day and once again they are treating you like a goddess -- bringing you a tray full of burnt offerings (known in our culture as breakfast in bed).
There's blackened toast, large brown lumps you think may be scrambled eggs, coffee "paste," and oh, are these strips of bacon, beef jerky or dog treats? Then of course you look at their smiling faces full of love and you are reminded how blessed you are. Thankfully, you pick up your fork and start eating. Has anything ever tasted more like manna from heaven? If you'd rather be able to identify your Mother's Day breakfast this year, then discreetly slip these recipes from www.LivingOnADime.com to your husband so that he can make sure that this heartwarming moment is also a tasty memory for you!
