Its getting to be that time of year again, Mother's Day approaches and I am going to cook for my mom and the family again (6 to 8) people. And I'm turning to the good people of Chowhound for help.
I am not a great cook, but decent. I do not have great skills or fanastic technique. I would say that I'm pretty average in the kitchen. That being said, I do not mind stretching a bit.
I plan to do a three course meal; so I am soliciting recipes and/or menus. Alcohol is not a factor, meaning I cook with it frequently, I just never developed a taste for it, same deal with my Mom. There are no real dietary restrictions, we are Jewish but do not keep kosher. (Bacon is delicious). She is not a huge red meat fan but does like lamb; so if anybody knows something in that area I think it would go over well. Other than that go wild.
Thanks for your help, and if I use anything I get from here I write up a little note to tell you how it went.
