Mother's Day is upon us. It's this Sunday, May 10th. It's time for good children (and their fathers) to treat Mom to a day completely devoid of cooking. Although you can go the restaurant route and take Mom out to dinner, I can't help but think of my own Mother. If I cooked for her at home, she would have applauded my thrift as much as any restaurant meal. And what would I have made? I immediately thought of this menu. It is so simple that even most amateur of cooks can produce it easily. And it is simply delicious. Besides, in a salute to Mother's Day, another mother came up with this recipe. And she created it from one given to her by her famous food-writer daughter, The New York Times own Melissa Clark.
