Next to doing housework, the last (and I mean LAST) thing any mom should be doing on Mother’s Day is cooking! Am I right? Not even for your OWN moms, ladies! Mother’s Day is the one day a year, pretty much, when it’s your day to be queen, with love, appreciation, relaxation and pleasure bestowed upon you. Lots of area restaurants are on board with that and are cooking up wonderful meals with food and drink specials in your honor. Reservations are either required or at least highly recommended! Hours vary by restaurant.
