Mother’s Day Gift Guide: 2013

May 06, 2013

Mother's Day is upon us this Sunday, May 12thand if you're still wondering what to get your mom, aunt, or grandmother, Kidzworld have rounded up a list of suggestions that will help make her smile. You don't have to spend a lot of money to make her day special, from serving her breakfast in bed to making a cool scrapbook of fun photos and memories, it's definitely the thought that counts!

 

Celebrated on the second Sunday of every May, Mother's Day is not just a Hallmark holiday, it's a celebration of mothers, motherhood and maternal bonds established by a woman named Anna Jarvis first in 1908. She then campaigned to make it a national holiday and succeeded - it was declared a public holiday in the United States on May 9th, 1914.

Ingredients

4 eggs

1 cup half and half

2 tsp sugar

8 slices of regular white bread

1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

2 tbsp butter

Instructions:

1. Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees F

2. Beat eggs thoroughly. Whisk sugar, half and half and vanilla.

3. Pour the mixture into a shallow glass dish about an inch deep.

4. Heat your griddle or pan to medium-low and melt the butter into it.

5. Soak a couple of slices of bread (only as many as your pan can hold at once) and count to ten. Flip over and repeat.

6. Carefully remove the soaked slices letting any excess liquid drain out. Transfer the bread to the griddle. Flip it over and grill until both sides are golden brown.

7. Serve French toast right away with maple syrup and some sliced strawberries, blueberries or raspberries on the side.  Voila!

No one knows your mom better than you so  whether you treat her to a pampering beauty treatment, bake her some cookies, or get her some gardening tools, she's sure to love it because it comes from you!

Everyone should be entitled to their own opinion, not damned to hell for having their own beliefs. I will admit I haven't ready everything in this topic, but so far, I'm agreeing with Teh-Skittlez. I'm not a religious person, I'm not saying anyone is "wrong", but I do think we should live our lives to the fullest, because the truth is, we don't know what comes after this life and therefore, doesn't it make sense that we should make the most of the one we have? The things we accomplish and the people we build relationships with may not matter after we're gone, and probably won't be recorded in any history books, but does that make them any less important to us?

You are the first person I have known (other than myself) to say rubber duckie. :D "lelnah" wrote: Which is more? Are humans harmful more than helpful? Or helpful more than harmful? Well, the "help" humans provide are for our own race, to cure ourselves from illnesses and build ourselves bigger buildings, etc. But meanwhile, we are damaging our planet and destroying the habitats/food resources of other animals. I would have to say we are harmful more than helpful, in terms of what we do to the earth and the creatures around us.
