I absolutely love being a “Boy Mom,” and would not trade for anything. I have become accustomed to low maintenance haircuts (C’mon Mom, it’s time to GO!), being called “dude,” testosterone-induced horse play and smelly athletic socks, but there are times when a gal needs some frilly, pink indulgences like a relaxing bubble bath, a tiny fuzzy kitten or a gorgeous, fragrant bouquet of star-gazer lilies.
The day after tomorrow represents the one day of the year when we Mom’s get to indulge our girly-sides and enjoy being a bit spoiled by our progeny. With that in mind, here is the perfect kid-friendly, no-cook recipe for spoiling Mom on her special day.
Cold Banana Bisque:
While the term “bisque” commonly refers to smooth, creamy, highly-seasoned soups made of crustaceans, it is also used to describe cream-based soups that do not contain seafood, in which pre-cooked ingredients are pureed.
2 medium bananas, peeled and sliced
1 cup half and half
½ teaspoon sugar
Pinch of cinnamon
Combine peeled and sliced bananas, milk, and light cream and blend them thoroughly in a blender. Add sugar and a dash of cinnamon and blend the mixture again.
Chill the soup until ready to serve and garish with Cinnamon Croutons before surprising Mom with this special treat.
