now that the whole family had arrived back home, it was time for a belated mother’s day dinner.

Since the mom loves mexican food, and we are big fans of brennar (breakfast for dinner), we decided to make huevos rancheros.

the egg came out overcooked, so it was more hard boiled than the intended poached, but on the whole, a delicious and easy dish.  next time, i would serve it with warmed tortillas, but i forgot them this time.

note: “huevos”=eggs, “jueves”=thursday. just so you don’t, as the mom once did, order “scrambled thursdays” when in mexico.

and for desert, flan! this was our first time making any custard type thing–ie flan, creme brulee, creme catalan, etc.

caramel toppings in place. note the one perfect one, surrounded by ugly ones.

while we panicked a bit about the time, and the fact that we had to make them in individual dishes instead of one big one, we decided to go ahead with it.

they all came out weirdly flat, yet delicious. the one pictured is the least flat flan, so the rest of them were like flan pancakes, or perhaps mini frisbees. but they tasted good, which is the most important part.

and now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for, recipes!

  1. Your mom sure is lucky. I’d love to have such a huge effort put into any dinner for me :)
