Mother’s Day is next week! #giftideas

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again because I’m totally not joking: all I want for Mother’s Day is some extra sleep!

Allow me to share my two favorite seafood recipes for any last-minute Good Friday cooks out there (with apologies for the 2012-style fuzzy photo in the second dish). These really are scrumptious and easy to pull together. Are you eschewing meat entirely this Lent?
