There's nothing better than breakfast in bed...except when you have to shake it from the sheets! With several lazy Sundays in our future – including Mother's Day (hint, hint) – we asked kiddie chef extraordinaire Catherine McCord, founder of Weelicious and mother of two, to whip up five crumb-less entrees that the whole family could eat in bed and leave lil clean up for mama! Check out Catherine's inventive options and be sure to start dropping hints about which you want on your special day!
Elka and I were clicking through The Selby's photos of Andy and Kate Spade's New York City home — which is amazingly sophisticated in a cozy, artsy way — and she commented on this photograph, "I can't believe Kate Spade lets her husband drink and smoke in bed while wearing shoes." My response was: "That is something I would never notice."
First of all, I'm a single lady, so those sort of cohabitation issues aren't a thing I pick up on. Secondly, I'm a huge proponent of breakfast (or cocktails!) in bed. In fact, just this weekend, my roommate whipped up some bacon, eggs, and cheese pastries and delivered them directly to my bedside. And now that the weather is chilly, I've already begun having my morning coffee in bed, easing myself into the day. Cigs are a no-no in my book, but the shoes don't bother me much either . . . the sheets can be washed! Then again, I don't own a crisp white duvet.
What are your thoughts on eating and drinking in bed?
While I'm a huge fan of leisurely weekend brunches, I'm not too keen on breakfast in bed. It's because I'm kind of a neat freak and hate getting crumbs on the covers or in between the sheets. Also it just seems gross — the concept of eating where you sleep. It reminds me of being sick and brings to mind hospitals. I'd much rather enjoy a romantic Valentine's Day breakfast at the table, thank you very much. How do you feel about it?

As you all know I am planning a super special breakfast for my oh-so-fabulous mother to celebrate el dia de la madre (translation: Mother's Day). Unfortunately I've turned the only breakfast tray we own into a crafting station for my invitation making hobby. The face of the tray is covered in glitter, glue, and paint - that's why last week I asked you to help me out and find my mom a beautiful breakfast tray. It should be pretty, elegant, and easy to eat off in bed. You saved your terrific trays in the Yum Market on TeamSugar with the keyword Breakfast Tray.
Mother's Day is around the corner, and I want to surprise my mom with a leisurely, delicious breakfast in bed. We have one breakfast-in-bed tray, but unfortunately I've turned it into a crafting station for my invitation making hobby, so the face of the tray is covered in glitter, glue, and paint. There is still a little over a week before Mother's Day, and enough time to find a beautiful breakfast tray. I want it to be pretty, elegant, and easy to eat off of in bed. Let's all head off to market in search of a breakfast tray for mom! Save your terrific trays in the Yum Market on TeamSugar with the keyword Breakfast Tray. I can't wait to see what you find, thanks for your help.
