A Spillproof Breakfast in Bed

Woman carrying breakfast trayIf mom’s always up and at ‘em making breakfast for the family, surprise her by bringing breakfast to her on her special day (That’s right: Mother’s Day is this Sunday, May 11).

Though bacon and eggs would certainly be a treat, a lap full of orange juice… not so much. To avoid a spill, use the fancy-hotel trick: Fill the juice glass three-quarters of the way up and cover with plastic wrap. Instead of a napkin, add a dish towel (which protects her pajamas, too). Once you’re in transit, hold the sides of the tray, not the bottom. And don’t look down. Big pillows placed on either side of Mom are not only comfy, but will also make her breakfast lap-stable.

If you’re not an early riser, but still want to treat your family’s leading lady try these make-ahead breakfast recipes.
