19/52: Mini Masterchef Mothers Day Menu

A portrait of my children once a week, every week in 2014

Mothers Day was made pretty special this year. A few weeks back when enjoying Masterchef the boys got the idea of designing a menu and cooking a meal for me. There were secret bedroom meetings and whispered conversations. Then late afternoon after we got back from our walk at Makara Beach I was banished to the bedroom upstairs so they could work their magic.

I was allowed to come down and take a couple of photos mid-making. Other than that I had not a clue what was going on or what the finished product was going to be.

My Mini Masterchefs Mother's Day menu:

Starter: Caesar Salad with Poached Egg
Main: Vietnamese Spring Rolls with Satay and Sweet Chilli Dip
Dessert: Apple Crumble and Custard.

What I love the most was the fact they chose items they knew I would love. They know I love salad and eggs, and that I eat rice paper wraps on tortilla night so I can eat gluten-free.

An incredible amount of thought went into this - far better than any meal out in a restaurant. To be surrounded by those I love eating food made with their love, that's the best Mothers Day a mama could ask for.
