A quick post today to round up some recipe/meal ideas for this weekend. With Mother’s Day this weekend and the Kentucky Derby, I wanted to share some inspiration for both occasions!
For your Derby party menu planning, check out our Salmon Sliders from last year’s Kentucky Derby and Food & Wine’s recipe slideshow. We’re celebrating the Derby early with the Wilmington Wine & Food Festival’s Bourbon & BBQ Derby Cocktail Party! Be sure to follow along with me on Instagram for an inside peak at all of the delicious food & drinks!
Spoil your mom this Sunday by making her a home cooked meal. I recommend two of our favorite (& easiest!) recipes, Spring Pea Crostini & Sea Scallops with Grapefruit Beurre Blanc. I also love this simple crabcake recipe from Our State Magazine. Another recipe slideshow from Food & Wine is loaded with unique ideas as well as this one from Epicurious.
What are your favorite Kentucky Derby menu items?! What’s your favorite dish to cook for your mom?! Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers, I hope your day is as special as all of you are!
