Mother's Day Dinner


You all know about Mother's Day, don't you? Mother's Day is a holiday celebrated on the second Sunday in May. It was instituted in the United States in 1907 and recognized by Congress in 1914.

Let's make Mom feel very special on Mother's Day by cooking dinner for her. If you can get other family members to help out with the cooking, everyone will feel good that they contributed to Mom's special meal!


Pep's Tip Of The Day:

Washing Up  
Washing the pots, pans and dishes after a meal is something that always needs to be done. You can leave that job until the end of the food-making, but it's best to clean them as you go along. A very helpful hint that will make the cleaning process easier is to soak all the utensils in soapy, warm water—except for knives which can cut you if you can't see 'em (don't soak knives!). Even if you leave the washing for last, the food will come off a lot easier.
