“Your arms were
always open when I needed a hug. Your heart understood when I needed a friend.
Your gentle eyes were stern when I needed a lesson. Your strength and love has
guided me and gave me wings to fly.”
Love You Mom!
Mother’s Day is special and is a great way for the whole
family to unite and party to thank that one person who is there for everyone –
Mother! Thank You Mom in some special way by hosting a great get-together with
her friends and family. Make her feel special this day with the royal
treatment. I am planning a surprise Mother’s Day Barbecue for my Mom this year.
My mom just loves Barbeque cooking and summer time!
To start with the planning. I had to sneak in her office to
see her planner and see if she has some plans for that day! And I was glad to
know that she was Free for the day! And now I can easily start with my barbeque
planning for my mother.
The first thing to start with is deciding the venue, if you
want to surprise her than planning it at your place is not a good idea, mom’s
know each movement in the house even if they are secret, which can ruin your
Surprise plan. So I thought of having it in my neighbors’ backyard!
Before going in for the decorations, I decided up the
MOTHER'S DAY MENU:
·Apple Walnut Salad
·Slow-cooked Baby Back Ribs
APPLE WALNUT SALAD
apples, cored and sliced very thinly
Parmesan cheese shavings
1 to 2 bags
of prewashed mix baby greens
This salad gives an elegant touch to any meal, but it
couldn't be simpler to toss together! Simply pour greens into a large bowl and
top with the apple slices, walnuts and Parmesan shavings. Wait until just
before serving to mix in the desired amount of dressing.
SLOW-COOKED BABY BACK
dry rub of your choice
*Note: The number of racks you need depends on how many
guests you are planning on serving. Most guests will eat between three and four
ribs. (It's always better to have too much than not enough.)
Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Line a baking sheet (you
might need more than one) with heavy-duty aluminum foil and place ribs on the
foil. Sprinkle dry rub on both sides of the ribs and pat the spices into the
meat. Put in oven and bake for about 2 hours and 15 minutes. A few minutes
before the time is up in the oven, light the grill. Take the ribs out of the oven,
slather with barbecue sauce, and finish them on the grill for 7 to 10 minutes.
Allow to cool before serving.
unsweetened baking chocolate
1 cup sugar
teaspoons pure vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Melt butter and baking
chocolate together, then stir in sugar, salt, eggs and vanilla. Blend flour
into the mixture until just blended (do not over-mix). Finally, fold chocolate
chips and pecans into the batter.
Pour batter into a lightly greased 8- by 8-inch baking pan
and bake for approximately 30 minutes or until a toothpick or knife comes out
Barbecue Party Decorations:
Keep the party decorations simple and sleek. First thing to do is to get your backyard mowed 3 days before your Barbecue Party. Choose those simple Barbecue Invitations available to invite your Guests and make sure you do that atleast 2 weeks before the party. Arrange some chairs and tables decorated with candles in those glass jars and some fresh flowers to make the yard look beautiful. Use disposable plates and cutlery so its easy to clean after the party and its comfortable for guests to carry the left over home.
Nothing flashy for the party keep it simple and let your Mom enjoy chit-chatting with her friends!
