It's Mother's day here in Australia on Sunday coming. The weather is still warm but not hot. I want to make a light 2-course lunch for DM. There will be 4 adults in total. No mushrooms. I'm needing inspiration please.

Is she particularly fond of anything? I know my Mum loves salmon and chicken and for dessert anything with ice cream.

How about salmon and veg in filo followed by peach & passionfruit meringue trifle?

Hmmmm she likes raspberries. No special savoury likes that I can recall.

Raspberry payola for pudding? You could make the meringue the day before.

No Jilted. Tbh a lot of the suggestions look scary-difficult to me!!!!! I must have simpler tastes than I realized! Will keep pondering smile

I'm thinking of spinach, feta and tomato slice with simple green salad. Still pondering dessert.

Pavlova will go well with that but I'll buy the meringue as it's one thing I make really badly.

We all have something that we aren't as good at, mine is pastry smile
