Five-Course Meal - Cooking Challenge

Have you thought about how you're celebrating Mother's Day this year?

 

Maybe it's mother, maybe it's wifey. 

Or perhaps you're celebrating someone better: yourself.

Celebrating yourself- you'd be celebrating what your mama created anyway.

  

No matter what you're celebrating, we have a really great tasting menu for your Sunday cooking pleasure this quarantine.

(Keep scrolling)

We also kept in mind that some ingredients aren't super duper accessible right now.

That means you have no excuse not to celebrate and give this 5-course meal a try.

(Don't worry- we made it easy!)

Don't you miss dining out?

We do.
