Smoked trout, avocado and snowpea salad
Mother's Day breakfast in bed won't cut it on its own - mum's not setting foot in the kitchen. On Sunday week, as she slips on a silk robe and face pack and settles back with a martini, a packet of Tim Tams and a Jackie Collins, it's everyone else's turn to hit the kitchen and whip up the meals.
